We all know honey is nature’s nectar. But with so many types on the market, each boasting its own unique flavor and health benefits, we want to help narrow down your selection by putting manuka honey on your radar.

Manuka honey is made by bees pollinating in the Manuka bush (leptospermum scoparium) native to New Zealand. Quickly rising to the top as a superfood, this one is known for its superior antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties, thanks to methylglyoxal (MGO) formed naturally in the manuka flower. 

Here are four ways to use manuka honey to treat and heal your body, inside and out!  

1. AS A DIGESTIVE AID

Manuka honey alleviates discomfort from stomach acid, ulcers and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) by killing the bacteria responsible for ulcers and balancing general gut health.

2. AS A FACE MASK

Adding a few teaspoons to a homemade face masks can help even your skin tone, reduce redness, flakiness, and dullness, due to the anti-inflammatory properties of Manuka honey! There is a reason why people with eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions swear by this natural remedy.

3. AS A HEALING AGENT

If you have a cut or burn, laying a thick layer of Manuka honey on the cleaned wound helps it heal faster with minimized scarring.

4. AS A COUGH AND SORE THROAT TREATMENT

Manuka honey’s enhanced antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties help soothe sore throat pain, ease coughing, and aids the body in battling flu symptoms.

TIP: The one thing to look for is the UMF rating (Unique Manuka Factor). The higher the number, the higher the antimicrobial potency.
