Trying to Fight a Cold Or Sore Throat?
Manuka honey products have potential antibacterial properties; when taken orally, they can help attack and even stop bacteria in its way before even having time to infect you.

With a clean face, spread a thin layer of the honey and leave it on for about 10-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
Want to Cut On Sugar?
Looking for a way to create healthier desserts without compromising on the delicious taste? Manuka honey is the perfect ingredient to substitute sugar with in your dessert recipes.
