For centuries, Māori have appreciated the health benefits and healing properties of the Mānuka bush. Mānuka honey was used to treat burns and skin diseases and to clear up the common cold, while Mānuka bark was used as a sedative or a mouthwash.
Late last century, scientists finally recognised the qualities and benefits of the honey collected by bees from the Mānuka flower. Today we’ve found more remedial uses for this exquisite nectar of the gods. Even though this sticky, amber liquid is used to treat so many ailments, there’s no denying, UMF® 18+ Mānuka Honey tastes divine!
