    OP, you sound like you're talking BS, as shown by the fact you mention 'kapha' which google informs me is some wishy washy concept from an Indian system of 'natural healing' (read: mystical nonsense that isn't remotely grounded in reality) that doesn't actually appear to mean anything.

    It's well known honey has antibacterial properties, hence it does have some use for infected wounds and to help healing etc, but how exactly can it help your eyesight? Or have any affect on asthma? What are you meant to do with it, inhale it? :rolleyes:

    Also is an good astringent for the skin.
    Wash your face and put a dap of honey on open pores, leave for 15min or so and then wash off. It makes your skin look very refined and soft.

    Just thought I'd add my 2cents to this honey thread...



    OP can we have a source?

    how do you explain the fact that it is at once both an 'instant energiser' and 'sedative'? My only explanation is that this post is a joke?
