Raw Honey & Asthma
Raw Honey can be a great natural remedy to relieve pain and inflammation from both Bronchitis and Asthma. For Bronchitis mix the raw honey with freshly squeezed lemon juice. Mix equal parts together and take by the spoonful or mix it with warm water for a soothing drink. Mixing these two delicious ingredients together will soothe your sore throat as well as providing relief from coughing and congestion. The lemon will give you a much needed boost of vitamin C and the raw honey which is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal will aid your body in the healing process.
For Asthma it is the propolis in the raw honey that is beneficial. Propolis is both anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory and honey is well known to help in immune system recovery following an asthma attack. One of the main symptoms of asthma is accumulation of mucous in the bronchial tubes causing airways to constrict. Raw honey can soothe these mucous membranes making it easier to breathe. Asthma sufferers should take one teaspoon of raw honey three times daily to get the benefits.

Raw Honey is a great all natural moisturiser for your lips. Simply apply a thin layer before going to bed and it will keep your lips moist throughout the night and you will wake up with a soft, smooth smile. Store brand lip glosses and balms often contain sketchy chemicals that you don’t want anywhere near your mouth, we tend to eat what is on our lips when we drink, talk and lick so choose raw honey for a safer alternative. Honey leaves a beautiful gloss so wearing it during the day is great too, just fill a small container or pill bottle with raw honey and you can bring it with you for touch ups throughout the day. Raw Honey is also antibacterial and anti-fungal so it can help to promote healing for cold sores and cracked, chapped lips.
