Granny Mouse Country House and Spa team have some super easy home spa remedies for when you can’t make it to Granny Mouse. They’re based on honey, nature’s ultimate beauty treatment which is produced by the Midlands favourite pollinator – the humble bee.
Firstly, believe it or not, honey can be used as both a face mask and even a face wash. Every day, simply splash your face with cool water before spreading on raw honey as a face wash. Let it work its charm for a couple of minutes, before washing it away with lukewarm water.(Source: ExplorerBob/ Pixabay).
If regular massages with coconut oil aren’t helping your hair, then the addition of honey is a must! Mix equal proportions of honey and coconut oil and apply to damp hair. Leave for about 15 minutes before washing it out. You’ll find that your hair will be much softer as well as well nourished.
Honey moisturises not just your hair but your skin too! Wash your hands and feet thoroughly before applying a thin layer of honey. Leave for about half an hour. It will feel sticky and you won’t be able to walk around the house, but the results will be worth it. Wash away with lukewarm water.
Honey is wonderful for chapped lips and is often a key ingredient in commercial lip balms. For your own version, simply apply a layer of honey on your lips every day. Licking it off is part of the fun! (Source: Lolame/ Pixabay).
Honey can even be the perfect stand in for a leg wax! Mix equal portions of honey and sugar (about two tablespoons will be a good start) and squeeze a few drops of lemon into the mixture. Heat this in the microwave or on the stove and you have your wax! You know the drill – apply a thin layer on unwanted hair, place a waxing strip carefully in place and pull!
If you are a razor person but experience bumps after shaving, apply honey as a soothing gel. (Source|: via GIPHY)
So, on a lazy weekend at home when all you want to do is pamper yourself, take out your bottle of honey and enjoy some bee natural care.
