 The Honey Bath

I've been curious about using honey in home-made natural body products. I have heard that honey is great for skin; that it helps skin feel soft and retain mositure; it is an antioxidant which helps prevent skin damage; and that is can treat acne.

Last night I started experimenting with a Honey Bath. 

 

- I put about 1/8 of a cup of honey into a mug.
- I dropped in these Essential Oils (see descriptions below):

 

  • 2 drops Balsam Peru 
  • 8 drops Lavender
  • 5 drops Mandarin
  • 3 drops Lemon


- I heated up water in my tea kettle and filled the cup with boiling hot water
- I mixed it well with a plastic knife
- I poured this mixture into my Bath Water
- I relaxed for 45 minutes making sure to splash the water on my face a lot.

I definitely smelled the sweet, floral, citrus bouquet of the honey and oils. It did not feel sticky at all. In fact, I didn't need to even rinse after my bath. 
My skin felt soft, but not greasy at all. My pores were very clean. And, the tiny bumps I sometimes get where my thighs meet my bum were gone -- just smoothed away. 
Experiment Successful; I will be doing that again!
