    Default Raw Honey question

    Just bought a jar of raw honey ffrom the health food store. Is it supposed to feel like little crystals inside it? hard to explain. I was licking it off a spoon (lol its so yummy!!!!) and its got like a texture too it. Cause i remember someone said about it dripping from their spoon?? thanks! want to try it tonight.

    Default Coconut vs. Honey

    Yeah, I had the option of buying the Honey or the Coconut and the Coconut was cheaper. Well, I put it on for a few hours and I my face was more red than it had been in a while for at least 24 hours. Might have to try the Honey instead...

    Do you mean you put the coconut oil on your face as a mask?

    In the past few months I've plastered this forum with this warning: virgin coconut oil must be applied SPARINGLY otherwise it will cause breakouts/rashes.

    You have to take a tiny bit of the solid oil (the size of a small pea) and rub it between your hands to melt it and apply to face right after cleansing, while the skin is still somehow damp. It will feel like you haven't applied enough oil and that's exactly what you want, the littlest amount of oil on your face. If your skin looks shiny after ten minutes, you've applied too much.

    I've been saying that over and over, like a broken record.

    Well, you are lucky your face didn't explode...

    Unbelievable.

    Please, do me a favor, will you? Read this: http://www.rosaceagroup.org/The_Rosa...ad.php?t=20789

    Hi All,

    I think using any 'oil' in large quantities will risk breakouts or reactions.
    When mine arrives I will doing a spot test (as recommended), and then build up little by little before doing the full face. If it is the size of a pea for the face then that is pretty thinly anyway.

    Have tried so many creams/ointments and lotions over the years and I've learnt the hard way. Use a tiny tiny amount on a small area (spot) and wait a few hours.

    I'll be doing the same with the honey treatment, just not worth the risk.

    Different horses for different courses.
    Cheers

    Charlie,

    Auburn always advises to use the virgin coconut oil SPARINGLY anyway!

    A spot test is always advisable!

    So i put some on my forehead last night. I am a bit worried to use it on my cheeks as they are so sensitive and the honey almost feels like a scrub mask. Do you guys have sensitive skin too?
    Also how thin did you make it? I just took a bit of the honey and put some water on it to make it runny. It dried all sticky and tight on my forehead though.

    Thanks.
