15 Amazingly Frugal Uses for Raw Honey

raw honey uses

Today we are going to talk about one of favourite foods. Raw honey.

You will know from previous articles  about natural sweeteners and the benefits of raw honey, that raw honey is pretty awesome. (Read this is you have yet to be introduced to the wonders of raw honey)

I love the stuff because it is so good for you body AND it has tons of uses AND when one product has about 15 different uses it makes it one frugal, budget friendly item on your shopping list.

Raw honey is more expensive than normal blended honey, but for the amount of things I can use it for I see it as a bargain as I don’t have to buy other things like face wash/mask, shampoo, sugar, chocolate, cough syrups etc.

(I buy in bulk – see below). 

15 Uses for Raw Honey

  1. Use it as a face mask to treat problem skin . Rub on face and leave for at least 10 minutes but longer if able and viola beautiful cleansed and soft skin.
  2. Eat it with kefir to reduce the sour tang and make a probiotic tastic dessert
