In this article, we will discuss how to use honey to lighten the eye color.
Lightening eye color using honey has been a controversial subject in the past and there are many who wrongly keep saying that this is entirely based on people’s experiences.
That is definitely untrue and there is serious research on this matter. And I’ll provide you the links to the research below.
Now, we all need to know what are the concerns and how to use honey before making our own judgment.
In essence, most people are concerned about whether honey really works.
However, the real question seems to be “is it possible to lighten eye colors with the right ingredients and procedure?”.
Evidence has shown that many have managed to lighten their eye colors and therefore I wanted to ensure you have some facts.

Manuka Honey Eye Lightening – Does it Work?
While many people think that putting something in the eyes other than conventional eye drops is not safe, honey is actually safe for the eyes.
It has been used for centuries to treat and heal for wounds and also for the eyes all naturally. (1)
Manuka honey (2) is the best of its kind and possesses anti-bacterial properties that are perfect to be used as an eye drop.
Using pure honey with some water is recommended to lighten the color of your eyes naturally.
Honey contains a certain amount of natural Hydrogen Peroxide which acts as a strong oxidizing agent with a presence of melanin (3).
This makes it work like a bleaching agent that lightens the shade of your iris to make the eyes look lighter in shade.
What you really need to remember is that Hydrogen Peroxide is already used to lighten the color of the hair.
However, too much of this substance can harm you.
That is why this is a little controversial eye lightening method.
And that is why honey is used instead of directly applying Hydrogen Peroxide.
Honey is not only used for lightening the eye but also to reduce the effect of Keratoconjunctivitis (4) and as an after eye surgery to accelerate the healing process (5).
So, please the first advice I can give is: “do not use Hydrogen peroxide in your eye”. It will surely damage it and it is not safe.
There is evidence that honey can help your eyes healing and honey does not damage the eye if used appropriately.
Why Manuka honey?

Raw Beech honeydew or Manuka honey is the type that really works.
You can prepare a DIY eye drops to lighten your eye color using just two ingredients – honey and water.

Manuka Honey UMF Rating System
UMF stands for Unique Manuka Factor.
It is a quality mark used to identify unadulterated manuka honey as produced in New Zealand. But you can also find it elsewhere in the USA.
It helps determine the unique properties of this special kind of honey.
The UMF Rating System regulates the natural markers present in Manuka honey and assures purity and quality.
This rating system regulates the – DHA, Leptosperin (6) and Methyglyoxal (7).
The original Manuka Honey should contain all the three components and not just one.
The UMF rating number is decided on the basis of the combined levels of the signature markers.
Higher the UMF grade, greater is the presence of the unique attributes of Manuka Honey.
- UMF5 – UMF9 – Low Grade
- UMF10 – UMF15 – Medium Grade
- UMF16 and more – Superior Higher Grade
To identify the genuine UMF Manuka Honey, check that the quality trademark UMF is stated clearly on the label.
The honey should have been produced in New Zealand, packed and labeled in New Zealand.
It should be from a New Zealand company that possess a license to use the UMF trademark.
It should also have a rating number with the trademark UMF.
A number without UMF does not identify original UMF Manuka Honey.
