Hi all,

Honey is an all natural moisturizer & emollient. It is wonderful for softening the skin & the hair. Yes, it is extremely messy but if done correctly it works wonders for softening and removing dryness.

For The Face

To use as a face cleanser & softener keep a squirt bottle of honey near your shower. (I love the little honey bottles in the bears). After your face is completely wet, squirt a tiny blob of honey into your fingers and massage into your face. Let the honey soak into your warm skin for 3-5 minutes and then rinse. You will notice a definite softening of fine lines and dry patches. Honey creates a silky finish. Be careful not to get honey near your hair as it will get sticky and tangled.

Honey On Your Hair

Honey can be used a softening agent. It is very messy & sticky so if you are going to try it, apply the honey to your hair in the shower after you have first wet your hair.

Do not shampoo first, just wet your hair w/ warm water. Squeeze excess water out and then apply the honey to your ends and dry middle hair.

Leave on for 5-10 minutes and then rinse out. You can follow with a moiturizing shampoo and rinse out conditioner.

Rosemary/Honey Facial

Honey is a natural moisturizer and emollient. Rosemary is toning to the skin as is rose petals.

1/2 cup of honey
1 small handful of rosemary herbs or rosemary flowers (your choice)
Note: You can also substitue a few drops of rosemary essential oil.
1 small handful of rose petals (optional) or rose oil.

Mix the honey and the herbs and rose petals together. Store in a tight container w/ a lid in a warm dark place for 2-3 weeks.

Place the jar in a double boiler to gently heat. Use clean fingers to apply to newly washed skin on your face. The honey will feel tacky which is very good. This means that it is stimulating circulation. Be careful to avoid the eye area. Leave on the skin for 15-20 minutes.

Rinse well. Apply the moisturizer of your choice.

Best wishes,
Karen
