In case you’re wondering, Huiji Honey is natural honey from China and this pure honey is distinctively different from others because of its pure concentrated form. Nutritious & delicious, honey can also be used for barbecues & for baking of cakes. Not only that, honey helps to relieve dryness in the mouth & also promotes good health.

For those of us whom are honey-lovers out there, you would know that handling honey can be a rather messy affair and even with the use of a spoon to scoop up a dollop of honey from the jar, there will still be residue left on the rim and cap of the jar. Now, with Huiji Honey, you can enjoy the natural goodness of honey anytime anywhere and with much more ease because of its special cap that is designed to help prevent spillage.
|From Huiji Honey 2013|
This specially designed cap ensures that each squeeze of the bottle leaves no residue and it also allows you to squeeze out the exact amount of honey that you require; hence, leaving no room for unnecessary wastage! The bottle has also been designed to be quite environmentally friendly because you can reuse the bottle for other purposes like dispensing oil or soya sauce after using up all the honey.
If you’re wondering where you can find Huiji Honey, it is available at Giant, NTUC Fairprice, NTUC Finest, NTUC xtra, OG, Prime Supermarket, Sheng Siong, Shop N Save and ZTP and it is selling at an affordable price of SGD$7.50 for a 1KG Bottle and SGD$4.35 for a 500g Bottle.
Since we’re giving away Honey, we reckoned that we should share with you 3 ways that you can use honey in your daily life.
1. Using Honey for Cooking
Honey can be used in a variety of cooking methods. In fact, you can use honey to marinate chicken wings and pork ribs for that tinge of sweet aroma and flavour or you can whip up some homemade salad dressing by pouring equal parts of honey, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil into a jar, closing tightly with a lid and shaking all 3 to form a mixture. You can also use honey as a substitute for sugar and personally, we like our toasts spread with butter and honey!

2. Using Honey for its Medicinal Properties
Honey has a myriad of medicinal properties and one of them is for soothing sore throats and for relieving pain caused by burns. Because of its anti-microbial properties, honey helps keep infection at bay. If you’re experiencing a pretty bad sore throat, you can mix one to two tablespoonful of honey in a cup of warm water/warm green tea to drink as it helps to soothe the throat.

3. Using Honey for Beauty
You will be surprised to find out that you can actually use honey to give yourself a facial treat. For a DIY [do-it- yourself] facial treatment, all you have to do is just apply some honey onto your face and gently rub the honey onto your dry skin in a circular motion with your fingers. Thereafter, wash off with warm water, wipe with a clean cloth, and your skin should be radiant-looking!
Check out a video by Annie Jaffrey [a Beauty & Lifestyle Blogger] about how you can use honey to do your own honey facial mask.
