Honey products have been shown to be effective in treating wounds, burns and sores.
Manuka Honey: Manuka honey is a US Food and Drug Administration approved wound treatment. Honey offers antibacterial and antioxidant properties, all while maintaining a moist wound environment and protective barrier, which prevents microbial infections in the wound. Multiple studies have shown that Manuka honey can enhance wound healing, amplify the regeneration of tissue and even decrease pain in patients suffering from burns.
Propolis: Propolis has a special compound called pinocembrin, a flavonoid that acts as an antifungal. These anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties make propolis helpful in wound healing. One study found that propolis can help people who have had traumatic burns heal faster by speeding up new healthy cell growth.
