HONEY (Mel)





Category: Medical Uses of Some Common Household Articles

This is a saccharine fluid deposited in combs by the honey
bee (Apis Mellifica).

Action: It is slightly laxative and a pleasant article of food. Honey and
water is used as a gargle and to relieve cough, dryness of the mouth and
fauces. When used as a gargle it increases the secretion of the mucous
membrane and so relieves the congestion. It is apt to disorder the stomach
when used too freely. Honey mixed with lemon juice and water is very good
for a cough, especially the tickling kind.
