What's all the buzz about?


And on that note, here are a couple honey-themed beauty recipes:

Basic Honey Face Mask
1 T honey
2 drops of lavender or tea tree oil (both natural antiseptics)

Mix the oil and honey and put on a clean face.
Leave on for 15 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
If your skin is dry, simply eliminate the essential oils.

Honey Cleansing Scrub
1 T honey
1 T oatmeal or almonds (natural exfoliants)
1 t lemon juice (takes oil out of oily skin)

Grind oatmeal/almonds in a food processor or blender.
Mix together the honey, oatmeal/almonds/lemon juice.
Massage mixture gently over your face and rinse with warm water when done.
