How to use it?

  1. Before using the honey on your skin, it is important to do a test. A person should apply a small amount of honey to a small area of skin and wait at least 20 minutes. If the skin is irritated, the honey should not be used.
  2. After cleaning the skin with soap and water, a person can apply the honey to the face or other skin areas. After leaving the honey on the skin for a few minutes, they can rinse it off.
