You might not know that the best relief for insect bites and painful wounds can be found in your kitchen. Honey is naturally antibacterial and anti inflammatory, and accelerates the healing of wounds. It relieves bee stings, insect bites, and infected cuts and wounds. It can even help to prevent infection and heal uninfected wounds. Next time you get hurt, consider applying some honey.

DISCLAIMER: This information is not meant to be used for self treatment. If you have an infected or otherwise serious wound, or have been stung by a poisonous insect, consult a physician. The writer will not be held responsible for any situations that might occur.

Step 1: How to Apply It

To apply honey to a small wound or sting,

- Open a band aid and place it sticky-side-up on the countertop. Hold on the fabric part to make the band aid let go of your fingers.

- Dab a tiny bit of honey on the fabric. You can use a knife or your finger to do this.

- Place the band aid so that the honey is on the wound or sting. Let sit for a few hours or overnight. You might feel some throbbing in the area around the wound. That should be okay, but if it feels very uncomfortable, just remove the application and wash the wound.

You may have to repeat this for a few days.
