Sweet Blessed Bee Magic

I recently started using this amazing product and I couldn't be happier with the results. Thank you so much Jackie Cossart!! Check out Sweet Blessed Bee Magic if you have a chance at your local health food store or retailer. I picked up my jar at Lazy Acres here in Santa Barbara and my skin hasn't been happier! I use it for everything and carry it around in my purse daily. It is amazingly hydrating, works as a great night cream, heals cuts and scrapes faster, and the bee pollen and honey proteins help eye lashes grow! Best of all it is organic and local!

Contains only pure, live, natural ingredients:
Organic extra virgin olive oil, organic beeswax, organic honey, propolis extract, organic bee pollen and royal jelly.

While doing some research online, I came across this informative website that had lots of info including the benegfits of honey! Read up! Makes me want to go purchase bee pollen right now!

Honey can assist wound healing because:

   1. Antibacterial and rapidly clears infecting bacteria, including antibiotic-resistant strains. 
   2. Honey's antibacterial property can diffuse deeply into skin tissues, so that it can reach deep-seated infections.
   3. Cleans wounds. Honey has a debriding effect.
   4. The osmotic effect of honey lifts dirt out of the wound bed.
   5. Dressings do not stick to the surface of the wound allowing easy removal of dressings. The osmotic effect of the honey keeps the wound moist, clean and prevents the dressing sticking to the wound. Tissue damage and pain are reduced when dressings are changed as there is no tearing away of newly formed tissue. Healing is more rapid.
   6. Reduces scarring. The honey draws body fluids and nutrients to the wound area and so assists cell growth and prevents a scar forming as the wound is kept moist. Honey provides nutrients (vitamins, minerals and amino acids) to tissues
   7. Promotes more rapid healing because the honey stimulates tissue regeneration.
   8. Acidity of honey releases oxygen from haemoglobin new growing cells need oxygen. Honey stimulates the white blood cells.
   9. Hydrogen peroxide in honey has an insulin-like effect and promotes wound healing. Insulin is a growth hormone
  10. Anti-inflammatory action of honey soothes and promotes healing, reduces pain and swelling
  11. Honey forms a protective barrier to prevent cross-infection of wounds.
  12. Honey removes malodour from wounds by killing the bacteria which produce ammonia
  13. Honey does not damage the surrounding tissue
  14. Honey minimizes the need for grafting
