All you need to do is take a bowl, add a cup of milk followed by two tablespoons of honey and mix well so the honey doesn’t settle down. Add the mixture to the ice tray and let it freeze. Apply one cube per night an hour before sleeping, wash immediately before you sleep as it may feel sticky otherwise.
