10 Amazing Benefits and Uses Of Raw Honey

A beauty product you can actually eat. Au naturel!

Recently, I’ve been trying to get back into healthy eating habits. The most difficult change I’ve had to make is cutting refined sugar out of my diet. A solution to my sweet tooth has been replacing sugar with Wedderspoon 100% Raw Manuka Honey. It contains many health benefits and tastes sweet. Manuka Honey can be a bit pricey, so I switch it up by eating plain raw honey. It’s good for you internally and externally.

If you’re going to use honey, it’s best to go raw. Regular honey has been processed and filtered so many times that it loses its antioxidants and nutrients. Raw honey tastes just as sweet as the regular variety and aids your body – so go raw! Here are 10 amazing benefits and uses of raw honey.
