If honey heals, we need to look at research to understand what has been scientifically proven about the healing powers of honey. At Waxing Kara, we’re not doctors and this is not medical advice, but we have done our research on the uses of honey. Based on several studies, there is scientific evidence to support the healing powers of honey.

Honey is an incredible pantry staple. It has an eternal shelf life that is packed with nutrients, it has been scientifically proven that honey is medicine.

Some varietals of honey, for instance Manuka honey has been proven to stimulate the production of monocytes that fight infections. If long-term research proves this to be true, it will make Manuka honey* a powerful pharmaceutical.
