Acne-clearing Honey and Cinnamon Mask or Spot Treatment

Saturday, February 2, 2013


Honey and Cinnamon Mask or Spot Treatment
 
This is an age old remedy that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds of years to cure a wide variety of ailments. Honey and cinnamon both contain anti-microbial properties, preventing the growth of bacterial and fungi.

 Honey is an anti-inflammatory that will reduce redness, and cinnamon will improve blood circulation for faster healing. Regular use of this treatment as a mask (2-3 times a week) will help to reduce chronic acne and improve overall skin tone. This can also be used as an overnight spot treatment when pimples threaten to rear their ugly heads.

What you need:  
1 tablespoon honey (raw organic honey retains more of its natural properties than processed honey), 
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder, one small bowl

How to use it:  Wash and dry your face with your regular cleanser, then smear the mixture over your entire face or apply it only to problem areas. Leave on for 20 minutes, then rinse and moisturize as usual. (Can be left on overnight if you can stand the stickiness.)

Honey and Cinnamon Cold Remedy:



Did you know that a teaspoon of honey (raw is best) and a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon will usually knock out a cold within a day or two? Take twice a day for 3 days for best results.

Honey and Cinnamon Cold Remedy:

  • 1 teaspoon honey 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix. Take this amount every few hours as soon as you feel a cold or other illness coming on.  After initially trying it with only one ‘dose’ and seeing the immediate effects, I now mix up a small bowl full of honey and cinnamon and spoon it into hot drinks or dip fruit into it all day long.  I find that with young children it’s easy to just treat the whole family with this simple yummy remedy upon the first sign of a sniffle from anyone.
