"Power Food in Ancient Greece"
Honey has been used for healing wound and rough (dry) skin since ancient time.
Ancient Greek Olympic athletes were taking Honey and fig as daily food for developing physical strength.
Honey is an anti-oxidant and an anti-bacterial, and lowers the blood sugar.
Honey is also hygroscopic that absorbs moisture from the air, and is a moisturizer that gathers the moisture to the skin.
Therefore Honey is not only eaten but also used for facial musk.
