It is no secret that there are many ways to use honey in order to improve health, as well as preserve beauty and delay wilting. It is not only taken internally – it is used for body wraps and massage; it is found in many face masks and scrubs. Today we will talk about one more way of honey’s influence on our body. A honey bath is perhaps not as popular as other methods, but it can bring significant benefits to the body.
Many people have heard about the antibacterial and tonic properties of honey, as well as about its beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system and capillaries. In combination with warm water, which opens the skin pores and promotes the absorption of the active components of honey deep under the epidermis, a product is obtained that has a beneficial effect on the most important systems of the body. First of all, such a bath activates skin cells, promotes their rapid regeneration and renewal. The skin becomes soft and velvety, and its damaged areas recover faster; besides, the honey bath is an excellent antiseptic.
Having a beneficial effect on the capillary circulation, a bath with honey becomes a kind of “subcutaneous massage”, which improves the condition of the skin for a long time, tones and nourishes it. A honey bath has a positive effect on the human nervous system: if you take it before bedtime, you can get rid of insomnia and gently eliminate the effects of daytime stress and emotional stress. Local immunity is increased; the skin becomes resistant to the effects of pathogens. A honey-infused bath promotes the elimination of toxins through the skin, which becomes even more elastic. It is not in vain that honey wraps and baths are often used to combat excess weight and cellulite.
Honey bath recipes
The simplest of them involves dissolving a certain amount of honey in warm water. So, you can add honey at the rate of 2-3 tbsp. l. on the bath. You need to lie in such sweetened water for half an hour, and continue the course for a month. For an anti-cellulite effect, the water should be warmer than body temperature (for example 40 ° C), but such a bath should not be taken for more than 10 minutes. Together in honey, you can add a decoction of herbs, such as chamomile, calendula or St. John’s wort, to the water, or a few drops of essential oil. This bath will be a good way of relaxation, relaxing and soothing.
There are still rumors about the magnificent Cleopatra, as if time had no power over her – after all, the queen remained young and beautiful for many years. One of her secrets, available to any woman today, is a rejuvenating bath with milk and honey. A glass of liquid honey and a spoonful of oil (lavender or pink) are taken per liter of warm milk. The composition is mixed until smooth and poured into water. It is recommended to take “Cleopatra’s bath” no longer than 15 minutes. After that, you need to wipe yourself off with a hard towel to induce a rush of blood and thereby improve the absorption of the bath components, and then lubricate the skin with a nourishing cream. Honey bath – sheer bliss and benefits for the body. However, it also has contraindications. These are diabetes, neoplastic and inflammatory diseases, blood and heart diseases, as well as an allergy to honey.
But even if you are healthy, you should not take a honey bath more often than after 1-2 days. Also, always pay attention to the quality of the honey you buy. Only a natural product can have a positive effect on the condition of your skin; Low-quality honey at best will not have any effect, at worst it will provoke negative reactions of the body.
