Welcome to September, and to National Honey Month! Besides being a delicious main or supplemental ingredient in plenty of recipes, honey is a bit of a wonder of a substance because it has plenty of features that make it beneficial for various aspects of your life. Read the rest of today’s blog to learn more about these ways you can use honey to improve your life in or out of your Estates at Briggs Ranch apartment here in San Antonio, TX.

Losing Weight

Switching out your sugar for honey can revolutionize your diet in a host of valuable ways. It boosts your metabolism, gives you energy, and can sweeten your foods without the harmful effects of sugar. Of course, this can make a huge difference, but using honey instead of sugar alone might not necessarily be the fast track to weight loss. Remember to supplement a healthy diet with exercise.

Moisturizing Hair and Scalp

Raw honey can cleanse and restore the health of your hair and scalp. Try making this DIY honey shampoo to cleanse, moisturize and restore shine to your hair. The post even has tips for figuring out if honey shampoo can work for you, with ideas for how to store it if you love it and decide to stock up on it!

Fading Scars

It may take a bit of time, but honey and baking soda can help reduce the appearance of scars. Mix a tablespoon of each together and apply to your scar, letting sit for 30 minutes. Rinse with cool water and pat dry. Repeat daily until you notice fading.

Improving Sleep

As Draxe.com points out, raw honey promotes restorative sleep. Add a tablespoon of raw honey to warm milk and drink before you settle in for the night. It will increase melatonin, which is a hormone that regulates sleep and wakefulness.
