I know that I’m not the only one in love with coffee. I take B12 to boost my energy but I have to have my cup of joe. B12 works but I enjoy coffee. You want to keep the little things that you enjoy..right? The trick is to drink coffee but to replace sugar with raw honey. We all know that the less sugar the better but did you know that you can use honey to heal yourself? Yes honey! You can cure a cold and much more using raw honey.
Kontrol Tip: The skin can get super dry during the winter. Forget buying mask and make a DIY moisturizing mask out of raw honey to hydrate your skin. Make sure you clean and dry your face then spread one teaspoon of honey on your skin. Let the honey mask sit for 15-20 minutes then rinse with warm water.

The number one reason why I am welcoming more raw honey into my life is because it can boost the immune system. I am SO lying. My number one reason is weight loss. The first fact that put a twinkle in my eye is that honey helps us lose weight and is known to enhance athletic performance and recovery. The second important honey fact is that Manuka Honey is an antioxidant powerhouse and strengthens the immune system.
Kontrol Tip: The darker the honey the higher the antioxidant level!
If you have a sore throat and cough you can cure it with honey. Honey lovers suggest a lemon and Buckwheat Honey drink for dry coughs. Raw honey is also good for people with diabetes because it regulates blood sugar. You can use honey for a lot of things from lip scrubs to sleep aid. It’s awesome!

Kontrol To-Go: The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services discourages giving honey to babies. Honey can cause an infant to become ill because of a baby’s immature digestive system.
