Cures in the Pantry: Honey is good for burns


I found an article in Sunday’s Parade magazine that said that honey is wonderful for healing burns. Apparently, the anti-microbial properties help burns heal more quickly than using commercially made salves. The article does warn that honey is the only thing you could use. You can’t use butter, shortening or any other substance hiding in the fridge.

Another reason to keep honey as a staple in the house.

The New York Times has a blurb about honey on burns too.
