Its uses other than food? In the herbal field, honey is used for the treatment of the hematopoietic system, the skin system, the nervous system, the respiratory and digestive systems; instead in fresh honey the antibacterial and antioxidant properties are strong, qualities that tend to fade with the passage of time and exposure to the light and the heat.
In cosmetics, honey is widely used for its emollient, hydrating and antioxidant properties; its greatest virtues? Applied to the skin, it performs a highly restorative action by hydrating it and giving it a new softness; its antioxidant power instead contrasts skin aging and the premature appearance of annoying blemishes. Finally, the high concentration of fat-soluble sugars contained in it helps to moisten the skin and fight the dispersion of intracellular water.
