Try this one if you like.

Oh I like that one, no cooking!

Just plain ol' dried thyme. Smiley We get it in bulk from the health food type store. (They sell bulk spices and stuff...more a cooking store actually...or country store. Not sure what to call the place.)

How much thyme per cup do you use?  I might experiment with mixing it with other herbs so it won't be so thyme-y.

Um...some?

I seriously don't know, I just wing it. I tend to make it rather strong, though.

I use a heaping teaspoon per cup and let it steep, covered, for about 10 minutes.

Thanks, I think I would have used way too little.

How do you use it for healing? Any other honey uses to share?

My father is and grandfather was when living Beekeepers so I´ve seen many ways of using honey. It is very healthy and can be used ofcourse as sweetener in tea or other drinks. It is also good in food instead of using sugar. (So-oo good with chicken) Ofcourse it is good for crafting spells to represent sweetness. Smiley

Honey is also good for skin but bit too expensive for skincare. What we did is to take the left overs of hunny from the process of taking it out of beesnest and use that for skincare when going to sauna (sauna is very common habit here in finland and there are alot of magickal habits with it)

Beewax is also good for making candles. So if you are doing spells with candles you can charge a lot of energy there in a process of making it and when burning the candle it will release the power to work for your desire. For example healing another person. I think the making of the candle is the most important and magickal work (the ritual) here what need most of focus. After that you can simply burn it without second ritual to release the power.

Here´s one of my favourite drinks to get well when bit of sick or cold.

Hot Tea
Rhum 2-4 cl
Honey

Then I just charge it with healing energy and it is ready.

But it's a d--n sight cheaper than all the fancy stuff we have for decubitus ulcers, and probably works just as well.

It has been a long time since I used beeswax candles, I don't know why I stopped using them. But I will have to start using them again. I would like to try your recipe too.  Thanks for posting!

In the News "Honey Makes Medical Comeback"

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22398921

I swear by honey and lemon in tea at the first sign of a sore throat. I also use it against laryngitis. I had never heard of applying it to wounds before though.

How do you use it for healing? Any other honey uses to share?

I use honey a lot and love it. Though I get teased some ... being told honey is for eating not for my face. *shrugs*

Another.... In the news... Article.

Funny how what is old is considered by some, new treatments.

Well, if people wanna go that route... honey is for bees; we humans just nick it from them for our various purposes.

Honey, lightly applied, also makes a marvelous face mask. I've had long-term mild to moderate acne that (now we're finally dealing with the hormone stuff sanely) appears to be mostly hormonally triggered - but honey masks have greatly helped the healing process. (Also, quite cheap compared to most face products.)


Jenett, did you use just straight honey for your face mask, or combine it with other ingredients?  Curious, as my son has moderate case of acne that doesn't really seem to be responding to the proactive thing.  Probably because he's 15 and getting him to do faithfully do a 3 step process just isn't happening.  Love seeing all the many uses for common herbs and ingredients I already have.  I've learned so much just in the past week!

Just straight honey - thin enough that it's tacky to the touch, not dripping, but thickly spread enough that it covers.

I can't wait to use that as an acne treatment- especially since it helps scars.

I got a recipe from "Sabbats" that's pretty much mixing equal parts honey and apple cider vinegar and boiling them until mixed. It helps my chronic sore throats hugely and even though it works best by itsself it makes apple juice taste like apple cider and is delicious in cranberry juice.

By the way, this is my first time on this message board and I Love you guys! I have no idea how I haven't found this before.
