Feeling the pain and heat of a burnt tongue is really unpleasant – so what do you do if you don't have any soothing medicated gel or a product to put on it immediately? Head to the kitchen according to my grandmother! This was a very common home remedy in Lebanon to help with those times you burn your tongue. A spoonful of honey has natural healing properties and instantly cools the mouth so you actually do feel instant relief. Its also a natural antibacterial and has anti fungal properties which act as an antiseptic, and speeds up the healing process by promoting cell and tissue renewal.

What You'll Need

  • Honey - It is better to use runny honey then the hard kind of honey - as its easier to spoon in to your mouth and dissolves quicker

What You'll Do

  • Swirl a spoonful of honey in the mouth for a few seconds before swallowing
  • Afterwards, drink or hold in your mouth some water to help get rid of the taste and clean your mouth
