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.
Note: If you try any of these things, make sure it’s real honey. There are many artificial honeys in the grocery stores masquerading as real honey.
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.
3. Seasonal Allergies – A teaspoon of local honey in your tea or coffee will help inoculate you against local allergens.
4 & 5. Cough and Sore Throat – Warm up some honey and put it in your tea to soothe your throat and stop coughing.
To learn more about these uses, watch the full video below.
