Raw honey.

Best you can get is Manuka honey. If it has active or UMF+ then even better, because it acts like a medicine as well and can be used on cysts and wounds.

This stuff is not cheap though, because it comes from New Zealand and Australia.

Raw honey. Many commercial "honeys" actually have a part amount of refined corn syrup in them. Disgusting.

Cloudy honey is better (still difficult to prove it is raw). Clear honey = do not buy.

Honey in the rough
Really Raw Honey
Ys Organic Bee Farmers Health Honey

These are three brands which are fine to eat. They're somewhat costly at ~7$-$9 per 16oz. but taste great, and are really raw unlike other brands which state it's raw, but has been processed.

I put honey on my face to get rid of red marks...even make the active acne appear less red...try it. Helps me...but you have to have it on all day so make sure noone comes to see you that day -)))

also - i dont know where you're from, but many farmers will keep bees and then sell the honey - right now we get our honey from a local farmers market (it's good stuff), but we used to get it from my grandfather (who kept a whole buncha bees).

if you can find a local farmers market or feed store that sells honey from someone who makes it themself - it'll probably be less expensive, AND you get to help out the local people (:

I would not recommend honey on the face. From my personal experience, it made it worse when I have tried it.

Many family members make their own honey(they afre farmers and use it for their alfalfa fields) and we sell it cheap or just give it away to people. I bet you could get a ton for cheap if you just asked a farmer(Has to have a crop with something to pollenate or else they won't have bees).

Like someone said above raw honey is cloudy(slightly) and hardens over time. If it's clear it was heated which kills all the enzymes. Another good point is that bacteria can't live in raw honey so it will always be sanitized(although it will get hard after a few months).

Don't spend 25.00 getting expensive manuka honey when you're just going to use it to bake.
