Honey as a dressing for wounds

Honey used for the treatment of indigestion, coughs and colds, insomnia, headaches, general weakness, and skin wounds...

Applied externally, honey is useful for healing minor cuts and abrasions by drawing excess water from the tissues and reducing swelling. In addition, honey contains a germ-killing substance called inhibine, which helpes prevent infectipons. Spread the honey directly on the wound and cover with a sterile bandage.
