Summer is a time to get out and enjoy good weather, but sunburns, scrapes, bug bites, dehydration, and weight gain abound. Help keep yourself and your family healthy and happy with these seasonal tips and hacks.
Raw honey is a versatile natural medicine. Applying it to cuts and scrapes throughout the summer can protect from infection, inflammation, scarring, and odor. This seems to apply for all honeys, although the research has focused on manuka honey, which was approved for wound treatment by the Food and Drug Administration in 2007.
Save money and calories on a summer road trip by fixing your own snacks for the ride. There are healthier homemade versions of almost all store-bought snacks. Some favorites you might try include sweet potato chips, chocolate granola bars, and puffy cheese crackers.
