Discover 75 super-healthy uses for raw honey

Honey is amazingly powerful, both in and out of the kitchen. Rich in vitamins and minerals, and containing antioxidant and antibacterial properties, honey can be used to soothe ulcers, burns, skin sores, inflammation, and more. And studies have shown honey does a better job of easing nighttime coughs and improving sleep than many commercial cough suppressants.

In The Honey Companion, chef and DIY maven Suzy Scherr showcases recipes, home remedies, and beauty solutions that highlight honey’s unique flavor and utilize it in unexpected ways. She even includes clever household uses for beeswax. You can try:

  • Honey-Sesame Popcorn
  • Shortcut Baklava
  • Herbal Cough Drops
  • Burn treatment
  • Conditioning Hair Treatment
  • Beeswax Granite Countertop Polish
