Honey Masks have such wonderful benefits for the skin.j  By adding other ingredients to  Honey Masks you add to the benefits.  Use Raw Honey for the best possible benefits.

What do you think of when you think of Honey?  Most people think of bees, flowers, and the Honey bear on the store shelf.  Have you ever tried raw Honey?  The Honey bear siting on the store shelf has been pasteurized and strained so that it looks pretty and does not crystallize quickly.  Raw Honey still contains particles and flecks of bee pollen, honeycomb bits, propolis and broken bee wing fragments.

Now you are most likely wondering what is propolis.  According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, it is:

A brownish resinous material of waxy consistency collected by bees from the buds of trees and used as a cement in repairing and maintaining the hive.

The particles and flecks found in raw honey can be a very gentle daily facial scrub or cleanser.   There are also masks that you can use for oily skin, acne prone skin, and to lighten the acne scars.
