A girlfriend of mine got me turned onto Manuka Honey masks with Turmeric, but this is how I bump it up a notch with sesame oil and Doterra Essential Oils.
Mix into a recycled glass jar or tiny tea cup:
Manuka Honey *1 table spoon
Turmeric Powder * 1 tea spoon
1 Teaspoon of Sesame or Jojoba oil
2 drops of Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca)
2 drops of Sandalwood or Frankincense
Manuka Honey : antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory. Manuka Honey stimulates cellular repair and reduces infection and is very soothing to wounds.
Turmeric: used to treat inflammatory skin disorders such as red rashes or blemishes, can be used topically to prevent further infection in wounds, external application can stop pain and swelling, while healing wounds rapidly.
Sandalwood: Acts as a mild astringent and can be applied to the skin to reduce irritations and promote healthy skin.
Frankincense: Reduces appearance of skin imperfections and promotes healthy cellular function.
Sesame Oil: Research shows that sesame seed oil is a powerful antioxidant. It is naturally antiviral and anti-inflammatory making it the perfect oil for your mouth and skin.
