Manuka Honey is one of New Zealand's most powerful natural ingredients and is world-renowned as a superfood healer.
Manuka Honey is made by bees that interact with just one species of flower from the iconic native New Zealand Manuka or Kāhikatoa tree. The Manuka grows throughout New Zealand and often found on windswept crags and cliff-tops. Fast-growing to three-to-four metres high and smothered in sweet fragrant blooms for many months of the year. These flowers are an incredible food source for a variety of pollen-loving birds and insects. When honeybees gather this nectar, the resulting honey has higher methylglyoxal (MG), so delivers uniquely potent health-boosting properties.
Manuka Honey has been hailed a wound healer and skin saviour for centuries in its native New Zealand. Long applauded as a natural medicine due to its higher antibacterial healing properties, this is what sets it apart from traditional honey. Not just good for eating, Manuka Honey is scientifically proven to promote healthy skin. Globally renowned for its antimicrobial and healing properties active Manuka Honey is approved for use in USA and EU hospitals to aid wound healing. Its unique 'Manuka factors' assists in making it one of the most biologically active and beneficial honey for the skin.
