Using Honey to Help Your Eyes

pouring some honey

September is the bee’s needs – literally! It’s National Honey Month so don’t be afraid of the bees because their honey is good for you. Honey is a fantastic natural sweetener and healing replacement.

Honey & Your Vision

Did you know that honey is used to treat health conditions of the eye? In the past, honey helped reduce inflammation and irritation in a person’s eye. It can also kill harmful bacteria that may be causing you an eye infection.

Honey’s anti-inflammatory makes it an effective treatment for several eye conditions.

Anti-Aging Fighter

Honey has cosmetic applications for your skin. It helps add softness to the top layer of your skin, reducing signs of aging. Mix some honey with saline, water or coconut oil to tighten the skin around your eyes.

Don’t Rub Your Eyes

Here are three things that can happen to your eyes if you continuously rub them:

First, anytime we touch our eyes without washing our hands we risk transferring that bacteria and exposing our eyes to infections. If you rub your eyes with your dirty hands you could make it worse!

Secondly, eye pressure increases as much as 20 times whenever we aggressively rub our eyes. For most people, pressure returns to normal once they stop rubbing their eyes but for others this can harm or worsen their vision. Rubbing can also harm the front of the eye, and the combination of rubbing and pressure can potentially damage the cornea. This may cause the cornea to weaken or misshape.

Thirdly, rubbing your eyes can cause the tiny blood vessels that are beneath our skin’s surface to break, therefore causing dark circles and puffiness.
