    I add honey to my liquid black soap (dissolve a chunk of black soap in water) and use it as a body wash and facial wash.

    I use honey as a pre-wash with olive oil....

    I mix about 2 tbs of honey and a 1/2 cup of heated olive oil....apply to my damp hair, place a plastic cap over it, wait for 15 minutes....then wash as normal...

    HONEY IS GREAAAAAAAT!

    ;-) Question...do you think it's better to use regular honey or organic honey for hair and skin concoctions? I use the regular honey, but I've seen the organic unfiltered kind in the jar with bits of honeycomb, pollen and debris in it.

    do you think bits of honeycomb, pollen and debris will melt in a water mix or will you have to take it out of your hair ?

    I think if you mixed it with hot water until the honey dissolved, you could then use a small strainer to get the debris out.

    Well I used honey in my Lustrasilk cholestorol (aloe formula) so I can get rid of the Lustrasilk. My hair came out very shiny. I thought it was the mineral oil in the Lustrasilk, but then I remembered that I used it sans honey and my hair had no type of sheen.

    I finally tried the honey recipe for my locks. HATED IT!!! It was okay for about a day. Then my hair was so dry and hard I thought some locks were going to snap off!

    Been awhile since I've been back to this thread.(Must've been the new baby!)

    Lots of great ideas. I get from most of the posts that honey is highly concentrated and a little bit goes a long way. When I put together a loc butter that's heavy on the honey I don't like the results or when I do a honey/olive oil hot oil treatment and get heavy with the honey and don't rinse well.....UGH!! The stiffness.

    But when the combo of shea/honey/etc is just right, my hair loves it. I'm gonna be trying out some of the other ideas.

    Honey is saving my extremely dry and eczema prone legs. I mix it a with a lil shea and my evening primrose lotion and its great! I find I react better with humectants than oils (shea excluded) and I guess thats a big part of it. x

    i use raw honey that has bee pollen and vitamins in it. you get it from the health food store. i found that even when i melt it down and mix it with olive oil it makes my hair stiff, but when mixed with a creamy conditioner of choice its perfect for me.

    jolisag567 - I put the honey directly on my face. Usually, I scrub my face with apricot scrub or something like that, cleanse with black soap, apply honey to moist skin (usually from the health food store or Trader Joes) let sit for 10-15 minutes, rinse with lukewarm water, then cold. Apply shea aloe butter.

    I mixed honey, water ,olive and glycerin together. I two strand twist my hair with aloe vera gel. Then once the gel dries I spray my honey spritz mixture in my hair it leaves my hair shiny and very soft.

    I use honey in my conditioner, w/ shea butter, as a spritz, and when I henna...my hair turns out super soft and glossy when I use henna and honey. I can't use it on my face or body. I'm allergic.

    I use honey in my conditioner when I noo-poo, i really like they way it makes my hair feel.
    I keep a bottle of it in the shower along with my apple cider vinegar bottle, these are two items i cannot do without.
    i'm gonna try some on my face today like some of you guys have suggested.

    BTW they first time I ever used honey in my conditioner i used too much and left it in too long and it really turned our hard, dull and frizzy, you only need a tablespoon or two....i just poured it on like a idiot...I'm glad i tried it again, it's great.

    I mix honey with palm oil (50/50) and
    - I use a little dab of it if I feel my ends are dry,
    - I use it as a deep conditioning treatment on wet hair
    :-)
    it works really good, I guess it would be the same with coconut oil

    My honey testimonial.

    I just recently, after reading these posts, tried honey in a deep conditioner. OMG! I was knocked off my feet! I mixed about a teaspoon of honey, with about 3 teaspoons of conditioner (triple moisture deep cond. hair mask). My hair felt heavenly! I didn't think my hair could be so soft, and moist( if I can refer t hair that way) more than two days in a row.

    I am sold, I looove honey!

    The first time I used honey I mixed it with coconut oil (equal parts) and used it as a pre & post conditioner. It was great! Then I started to add a little Ylang Ylang EO to it - love the smell! Try that instead of Olive oil you'll find the results amazing. For my next mix - I would like to try Honey with some Austrain Pumpkin Seed Oil (as a pre and post condish).

    I actually made a honey, olive oil (xvirgin), and H2O mix, I did a Tablespoon of honey, 2 teaspoons of olive oil, and 2 oz. of h2o (this is for a 2oz. bottle) and dropped (3 drops) Frankinscense and Myrrh oil for fragance purposes only and it is a great hydrant for my nappy and permed hair, I like it for the transistioning process
