Let the bees help you maintain a beautiful complexion, deter blackheads, ease the frustration of troubled skin. Wildflower and clover honey already have the beneficial attributes of these herbs within the honey itself.

Honey is a natural humectant which means it retains moisture and plumps up skin cells. It helps to rebuild the moisture level in the skin without making it oily. The high sugar, low protein content create an acidic environment with limited availability of water therefore bacteria cannot thrive.
When you wash the honey off your skin, a small amount remains in the pores. As a result, the sugars in the honey attract water from the air, which keeps your skin hydrated.

Raw honey has a different look than pasteurized commercial honey. It has not been heated or filtered therefore it looks a bit cloudy and has flecks of the activities of the hive, such as honeycomb bits and pollen. Having a high anti-oxidant level and being the natural enzymes have not been destroyed by heat, raw honey is a much healthier product.

Glucose oxidase is an enzyme that when combined with water produces hydrogen peroxide, a mild antiseptic. Honey also contains antioxidants and flavonoids that may function as antibacterial agents. It calms down troubled skin without irritation. These antiseptic properties help prevent the growth of microorganisms that cause blackheads.

Trying to control blemished skin by washing too frequently with soap can backfire resulting in dry irritated skin while further increasing the production of oil. Some acne treatments are just too harsh and drying.

Honey all by itself is wonderful but our treatment utilizes the properties of two essential oils. Tea tree oil is a disinfectant and chamomile is an anti-inflammatory, both great for soothing and healing irritated or infected skin. These two essential oils are strong, in scent and therapeutic value, so spot treat first to be sure your skin isn't sensitive.

*****The type of chamomile used is German Chamomile whose essential oil is blue in color. Combining the blue with the gold of the honey results in the honey mask having a tint of blue/green to its color. German and Roman Chamomile both have amazing properties for skin care. German chamomile is often recommended for healing and inflammation and Roman chamomile is often recommended for anxiety and stress, but they can be used interchangeably. I started using a bit of each essential oil.
If you really don't like the color change and prefer the usual gold color, just let me know and I'll use only the Roman Chamomile essential oil.******

Yes, being this is honey, expect it to be sticky.

How to use:
Ideally, if you have clogged pores, you should begin with a facial steam to open up your pores which will enable the mask to penetrate more deeply. You do that by bringing about two cups of water to a boil and adding that to a bowl (add a tea bag if you'd like (black tea or chamomile is good). Be sure to have a clean, washed face. Then cover your head with a towel and lean over the bowl to trap the steam. Relax for about 10 minutes.
Dab away the moisture a bit and apply just a thin film of the honey mask over your face (you don't want it all drippy), avoid the eyes since the chamomile and tea tree essential oils can be strong. Again relax for about 30 minutes.
Wash off with warm water, dry and use a toner if you'd like to close the pores. Vinegar toners are great in that they balance the skin pH which help with breakouts. Then moisturize if you need.
Honey masks don't dry the skin like clay masks can so you can use it three or so times a week. You'll know if it's too often if your skin gets red and irritated from the potency of the essential oils.

Honey naturally crystallizes with time, which is normal, especially with raw honey which hasn't been heated and processed. You can then use as you would a sugar scrub, by applying a bit to finger tips or facial cloth and use gentle circular motions to cleanse. If you don't like the crystals, just microwave for a few seconds or gently heat in a warm water bath.

Another way to use a honey mask is to spot treat blemishes. Before going to bed, dab a bit on the blemish and leave on while you sleep. Optional is to cover the spot with a band-aid.

External use only.

Keep in mind:
The cause of acne is not the same for everyone. If your breakouts are brought on by bacteria, then the use of honey to combat those blemishes will in all likelihood help, but if your blemishes are triggered by medication or lousy lifestyle, then though the honey will soothe your complexion, it may not be able to get rid of it for good.

First time users:
Please do a patch test on a small area before using all over your face to observe any signs of an allergic reaction to honey.

********HONEY'S HEALING PROPERTIES********
Honey was a conventional therapy in fighting infection up until the early 20th century.
The use of honey in wound care is regaining popularity as researchers learn exactly how raw honey can help with wound care. When applied to the skin, honey may serve as a barrier to moisture and keep skin from sticking to dressings. Cover the area with a piece of gauze and change the dressing with new honey every 12 hours.
