Honey has been used for natural home remedies for the longest time. It has calming, moisturizing and soothing properties that are great for skin and hair. A lot of face mask use honey as a base. The sticky texture ensure the mixture stays on your skin and absorbs all the benefits. Likewise, honey is an amazing base for homemade hair treatments. For instance, apple cider vinegar can be used alone but it can be too strong, so when you combine it with honey the consistency is smoother and less acidic.
