In Honor of Honey Bees Everywhere


Did you know? July is honey bee awareness month! Honey bees never sleep, always busy producing the only food that includes all the necessary substances to sustain life. Sure we’ll take it in our tea, but there is so much more that honey can do! It really is one of nature’s skin care miracles.

What can honey do for your skin?

Hydrating

Honey naturally attracts and retains moisture and is suitable for all skin types.  Dry or dehydrated skin benefits because honey seals and locks moisture into the skin and oily skin benefits since honey moisturizes without added oil – even sensitive skin benefits since honey is known for having non-irritating properties!

Disinfecting

Honey contains a naturally occurring enzyme that prohibits the growth of bacteria. This anti-microbial agent is excellent for preventing and treating minor acne because it goes right to work attacking bacteria while also moisturizing and rejuvenating the skin!

Protecting

The antioxidants in honey combat free-radicals in the body and protect from environmental aggressors. Antioxidants also help supply nutrients for the growth of new skin tissue, which helps reduce the appearance of old scar tissue.

Try it at home! Ole’s Honey Oatmeal Mask:

  • 1 tsp plain yogurt
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp finely ground oatmeal
  • 1 vitamin A capsule
  • 1 vitamin E capsule
  • 5 drops lavender essential oil

Create a smooth paste with the above ingredients. Apply on clean skin, rinsing with luke warm water after 20-30 minutes.  Best used once a week.

This mask will calm, purify and nourish the skin!  Cheers to honey bees everywhere!
