Honey is getting some attention among practitioners as a treatment for a number of skin conditions. This includes ulcers, bedsores, and burns. The idea is that honey helps penetrate the wound and ward off bacteria. On top of that, honey may help reduce inflammation and provide a moist environment conducive to healing.

You must use a raw variety that hasn’t been processed above 95 degrees.
