Since antiquity, honey has been used primarily to accelerate the healing of wounds, ulcers and various types of skin infections. It can reduce symptoms associated with allergies or dermatitis, and inhibit swelling, exudation and redness. It also speeds up the healing of burns.

The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects of honey help reduce scarring. Studies also show its effectiveness in the treatment of rosacea and many other dermatological diseases. Honey has a strong anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effect.

No wonder that our grandmothers and former doctors used honey as a remedy for all infections. Currently, bee honey is widely used in medicine and cosmetology.

  • How does honey work?

    The healing effect of bee honey is determined by the large number of monosaccharides (fructose and glucose, which constitute 70% of the sugar in honey), as well as vitamins (B, C, A, E), trace elements and organic acids. Important in its composition is the enzyme glucose oxidase, which, by converting glucose into hydrogen peroxide, makes honey bactericidal.

    Scientifically speaking, the anti-inflammatory effect of honey is based on the stimulation of leukocytes to secrete cytokines and growth factors that influence the tissue reconstruction process. Honey removes the secretion of the sebaceous glands and accelerates wound healing – all thanks to the glucose oxidase contained in honey. It also supplies our tissues with nutrients.

The hydrocarbons found in honey have a moisturizing effect. Glucose limits diffusion, which is associated with water retention in the epidermis and its constant moisturizing. Additionally, gluconic and malic acid and vitamin A improve skin hydration. In contrast, malic acid brightens pigmentation spots. Therefore, regular use of honey as a care product improves the condition of the skin.

B vitamins will improve the color of our skin, reduce the secretion of sebum and moisturize our skin, as well as delay the skin aging process by inhibiting cell degradation processes. We can find vitamins C and E in honey, thanks to which honey is also excellent for capillary skin.

  • What does the procedure look like?

    For the honey ritual, we use dark bee honey with the addition of warm sweet almond or argan oil.

    We traditionally start the treatment with a gentle peeling to cleanse your skin and open its pores. Thanks to this, the valuable ingredients of honey and oil will be well absorbed. The masseur will perform a relaxing massage that will reduce your tension – both physical and mental. After the treatment, we will wrap your body in foil for about 15 minutes, so that the beneficial mixture nourishes and moisturizes it even better. Finally, we will wash you with warm water and invite you to the Relaxation Room for a glass of delicious tea.

    WARNING! Honey may cause an allergic reaction in allergic people.

Important! Honey ritual is not recommended if you are allergic to pollen, fungus spores or insect venom.
