 When it comes to natural sweeteners, the first thing that strikes the mind is definitely honey. A sweet liquid, honey is made by bees from the nectar of flowers. Organic honey is collected from wild bee colonies or domesticated beehives. Honey is a delicious and natural sweetener that many of us prefer in our milk, juice, tea, lemon water or simply on our bread.  A rich source of natural sugars, honey contains antioxidants and flavonoids that are beneficial for health. Its potent antibacterial and antiseptic properties help keep bacterial and fungal infections at bay. Other nutrients that honey has are riboflavin, niacin, vitamins B12 and C, calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium.  Looking at the nutritional profile of honey, it would not be wrong to say that it is nature’s answer to many health problems. This is why honey has indeed been a favorite among nutritionists, dieticians, beauty experts and Ayurvedic practitioners.  In fact, for centuries, honey has remained an integral part of our lifestyle and especially for taking care of our health. Caution: Raw honey can carry harmful bacteria that can cause botulism, which is particularly dangerous for babies. You should never feed raw honey to babies under age 1. In adults, botulism symptoms are similar to food poisoning, including nausea, vomiting and fever. Consult your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms after eating raw honey.  Here are the top 10 home remedies using honey. 1. Heals Wounds Minor wounds, grazes, skin abrasions and cuts are common in everyday life. Now, when you need to treat a minor wound or cut, just grab your jar of honey. Honey works as a natural antiseptic and has many antimicrobial properties that can sterilize wounds and promote healing, while also reducing pain, odor and the size of the wound. Also, it has an enzyme that produces hydrogen peroxide, which adds to honey’s wound-healing capabilities.  A 2006 study published in the International Journal of Lower Extremity Wounds highlights the effectiveness of honey in assisting wound healing (1). Another study published in the BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine in 2010 shows that Manuka honey can boost healing time and reduce infections in wounds (2). A 2011 study published in the Scientific World Journal supports the use of honey for wound healing, as it stimulates tissue growth. It also reduces the risk of developing an infection, thanks to its antioxidant and hydrogen peroxide content (3). Again, a 2012 study published in AYU reports that there was significant improvement in the healing process of wounds due to honey’s antibacterial, wound-cleansing and wound-healing properties (4).Simply put a layer of pure honey on the site of the wound. Cover it with gauze and a bandage, if needed. Replace it a few times a day, as needed.Alternatively, mix equal amounts of honey and turmeric and apply it on the wound 2 or 3 times a day. You can leave it on for at least 30 minutes before rinsing i
