Something you may not know about honey is it has the ability to kill bacteria and heal wounds. Although the idea of putting honey on a wound seems a bit strange, it has actually been used for treating infected wounds and other skin conditions for thousands of years. One caveat—this isn’t just any honey—it’s Manuka Honey!
What is Manuka Honey?
Manuka honey is a highly nutritious, special kind of honey that comes from the Manuka flower nectar gathered by the bees in New Zealand. Manuka is a Maori word that refers to the medicinal flower that grows on both New Zealand's North and South Islands.
What are the benefits of using Manuka Honey?
Manuka honey is used as an antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antiviral, antioxidant, and antifungal. Studies show Manuka honey can be very effective in helping relieve stomach ulcer symptoms and gastritis, and when applied topically, it assists the natural healing of skin ulcers, wounds, burns, boils, and cracked skin by diffusing deep into the skin.
