Honey Tips For Summer

Summer is officially here and the honeybees are buzzing! As you prepare for long days at the swimming pool or trips to the lake, don’t forget to pack some honey, as it might prove to be quite helpful. Here are some of our favorite honey summer tips:


Applying Sue Bee® honey directly on sunburned skin can help cool and soothe the burn. And you can go one step further by mixing together 1 teaspoon of Sue Bee® honey, 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil and 1/4 teaspoon of lemon juice and put it on the sunburned area. Leave it on for 10 minutes, then rinse off with water.

Bug Bites

Next time you get a bug bite, try rubbing Sue Bee® honey on it and pressing an ice cube on the honey.

Summer-Damaged Hair

Swimming and sunshine can be tough on hair. Help keep yours healthier this summer with a homemade hair shine. Stir 1 teaspoon of Sue Bee® honey into 4 cups of warm water. Add lemon if desired. After shampooing, pour the mixture through your hair. Don’t rinse. Dry as usual.

Sugar Substitute

Honey is Mother Nature’s sweetener and a great alternative to processed sugar. Take it on your trip to add to your coffee, tea, breakfast, lunch, dinner and more!
