6. Use honey for open wounds
For ages, honey has always been the go-to natural remedy for fresh wounds, because not only does it have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties but also anti-inflammatory powers which prevent swelling or inflammation from wounds.
If you have a fresh wound, apply honey to a cotton swab and then to the wound. It will effectively kill bacteria and speed up the healing process.
Make sure to apply only enough (not too much) of honey to your wound and bandage the affected area with a clean bandage.
