    Hey blogger,
    Nice blog. Thanks for the tips. I never used honey for my skin, but I use it as conditioner in my hair once in a week.

    From the very early age, I am a regular user of honey. Since I have been using it for long 25 years, I’d never ever faced any skin problems, like pimples, blemishes, rashes, acne etc. it works meticulously wonderful.

    Thank you for letting me know the importance of honey on skin and hair; but I would prefer to intake 1 teaspoon of honey daily at morning. It protects me form cough and cold.

    Yes Rossy,
    This honey is good for cold and cough, but if you take it with Chyawanprash (an ayurvedic tonic), then the result would be much faster and much better.
