Australian Manuka Honey

Manuka honey is made in Australia and New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native leptospermum scoparium bush (also known as a tea tree).

The leaves of the Manuka tree, also known as a tea tree, have been known for centuries among the indigenous tribes of New Zealand and southern Australia for their healing powers. Bees that collect nectar from this tree make Manuka honey, which harbours some of healing properties.

All honey contains antimicrobial properties, but Manuka honey also contains non-hydrogen peroxide, which gives it an even greater antibacterial power. Through thorough research it has been found that this activity is attributed to the naturally occurring chemical Methylglyoxal (MGO). Manuka honey can contain over 70 times the MGO level than normal honeys.

The main medical use for Manuka honey is for wound and burn healing. It is generally used for treating minor wounds and burns. Research shows Manuka honey to be effective in treating other conditions, including:

• Skin care including eczema and dermatitis

• Soothing a cough or sore throat

• Digestive Health
