You'll find some great recipes for skin conditions using honey. Please remember, these recipes should not replace a doctor's advice.

4 tsp beeswax
4 tsp honey
2 tsp aloe vera

Place ingredients in a warmed bowl. Stir well. You may need to place the bowl in hot water so the wax melts. Place in a clean jar for storage. Gently apply to skin to soothe sunburn as needed.

Cuts and Abrasions
1 tsp honey
1 q-tip
Band-aid or bandages

Gently clean cut. Apply honey with a q-tip. Bandage as usual.

Spread honey on gauze. Apply the gauze to the burn and wrap securely and tape.

Dry Skin
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp plain yogurt
3 tbsp ground oatmeal

Mix the ingredients to a paste. Apply gently to affected area and leave for 5 minutes. Wash off with warm water, followed by a cool water rinse.
