I’ve written about the health benefits of honey, but it also has many other uses, particularly in survival scenarios.
In this video, SkinnyMedic shares 5 ways raw honey can be used for first aid. I typed them up, but be sure to check out the video below for more details.

1. Minor Cuts – Once the bleeding is under control, use honey (instead of antibiotic ointments) to prevent infection, as it’s a great natural antibiotic.
2. Minor Burns – Again, because honey is a natural antibiotic, it can help prevent a burn from getting infected, and it can help the burn heal faster.
