Medicinal Honey

Honey has been used for centuries for wound treating with evidence for a wide range of medicinal uses.  Ancient writings dating to the 17th century BC, by Edwin Smith Papyrus report honey's many uses medicinally.  It wasn't until the late 19th century that researchers discovered honey's natural antibacterial qualities.


The possible health benefits of consuming honey have been documented in early Greek, Roman, Vedic, and Islamic texts and the healing qualities of honey were referred to by philosophers and scientists all the way back to ancient times, such as Aristotle (384 - 322 BC) and Aristoxenus (320 BC).

Honey not only protects against damage caused by bacteria, but some honey can also stimulate production of special cells that repair tissue damaged by infection. Hydrogen peroxide is produced by honey, which is what gives it the antibiotic quality.  Honey also possesses antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Honey is an ancient remedy for the treatment of infected wounds, which has recently been ‘rediscovered’ by the medical profession, particularly where conventional modern therapeutic agents fail.

The beneficial properties of honey can be ascribed to the fact that it offers antibacterial activity, maintains a moist wound environment that promotes healing, and has a high viscosity which helps to provide a protective barrier to prevent infection. There are many reports of honey being very effective as dressing of wounds, burns, skin ulcers and inflammations; the antibacterial properties of honey speed up the growth of new tissue to heal the wound.

Microbial resistance to honey has never been reported, which makes it a very promising topical antimicrobial agent against the infection of antibiotic-resistant bacteria (e.g., MDR S. maltophilia) and in the treatment of chronic wound infections that do not respond to antibiotic therapy. Hence honey has been used as a last-resort medication.
