Ailment: Blepharitis (red eyelid margins)
Raw, unprocessed honey is an antiseptic and immune system booster that helps with a wide range of ailments. Raw honey contains enzymes that are destroyed when heated higher than body temperature. Most honey is extracted and processed using heat, so take care to buy honey from a source that you trust.
Dissolve a teaspoon of honey in a glass of tepid to warm (not hot) water. Drink this three times per day.
This remedy is much more effective when combined with Apple Cider Vinegar, and / or turmeric (crushed raw turmeric if available, otherwise turmeric powder) and / or cinnamon.
Honey and cinnamon is a powerful traditional healing remedy, also a long-life tonic.
Warning - honey is a concentrated source of free fructose. Avoid it if you suffer from fructose malabsorption, candida or obesity.

I have been diagnosed with rosacea since I was 32 years old. I am now 48 and it has been a constant struggle. The blow to your self esteem, the missed appointments, work days, social event is just overwhelming. I am a Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer so looking healthy has to be part of my job. With heavy exercise being a trigger, can u imagine what that is like! I am also Haitian, which is not your typical fair skinned, nordic type thay usually gets rosacea. I'm posting because I recently found a weird combination that has helped me so profoundly that I had to share. Thanks to all those who posted about demodex mites because I firmly believe they are really behind the scourge of rosacea. I had a recent flare up for about 3 weeks now and was getting no relief. My derm has prescribed Spironalactone which I had been taken 25mg for about 8 yrs now with occasional p&p's. That's the kind I have of course. But out of the blue, this flare up. Searched the web, found this website and really thought seriously for the first time about mites. Bought some TTO and applied it about a week ago. Ok for 2 days and then massive flare up from mite die off, wow! Panic. One day good, 3 days bad, typical. Into treatment about a week now and read a lot about metrodinazole and thought, I've got some miconazole (yeast fighter) why not try? So I made a paste of zinc oxide, tto and micanazole, spread it over my face and in the morning instant relief!!! Bumps gone, itching gone, amazing! I also treat lashes with tto as I have red eyes etc. Also make a home made eye drops of organic honey, apple cider vinegar and distilled or spring water. Put in eyes from an eye dropper 2x daily. Relief! 1 tsp of honey, 1/4 cup of water, 5-6 drops of vinegar but no more. Less is really more here so not too much vinegar. It will sting a little but don't put too much where it will burn. So far face is looking great and it only been a little over a week. Hope this helps a fellow sufferer as much as it has helped me. Love and health to all!
