This ish right here! It’s pretty damn amazing, powerful, yummy and a must have. 

Yes, it’s honey but not just any honey. It’s a healing honey that can be used internally (via spoonfuls or in tea) or externally (on hair, skin, cuts). 

My partner suffers from cystic acne. NOTHING was working to help reduce his painful bumps (or scars that were left behind by past breakouts). We did some research and I KNEW manuka honey would pop up. He’s been using it for over 2 months and I am proud to say his acne is under control, his scars have faded and some have even disappeared. 

How he uses it (nightly):
-smears about 1 tablespoon all over his face and leaves it on for 15-30 minutes.
-takes a warm rag and removes the honey from his face.
-rinses with cold water 

that’s it. 

I’ve been using this honey on my hair (when I had hair) and in my tea for over a year. Now, since my head is shaved, I use it on my scalp after my haircuts to minimize itching and flaking. I leave it on for about 15 mins before rinsing. 


I love this stuff. You know what’s funny? It actually smells like medicated honey, even though nothing is added to it. It’s crazy how the earth and it’s workers (the bees) can produce such magic!

Manuka honey isn’t cheap BUT it’s worth the 26 bucks. 

We got ours from Amazon. It’s cheaper there than at Wholefoods or Roots Market.


I highly suggest you research it if you’re struggling with acne or acne scars. And in general, having this honey a part of your diet and/or holistic health regimen is pretty damn awesome.


Google it. Thank me later. xoxoxo

"I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged."

Five Myths About Crime in Black America—and the Statistical Truths
In the wake of Trayvon Martin’s death [and Renisha McBride and Jonathan Ferrell], we’ve seen a lot of discussion of the larger societal issues that play into how and when people are perceived as criminals. There were hoodies, there were marches, and there were frank talks from parent to child about how to minimize the danger of being a young person of color. On the other side, there were justifications of George Zimmerman’s actions: a smear campaign against Martin’s character, and plenty of writers explaining that statistically, blacks are simply more dangerous to be around.
That framing ignores the realities behind the numbers. Here are five myths about crime and people of color.

We often make the mistake of thinking our hair is fine because it still curls…. Keeping the integrity of your curl pattern is important!!!
