What is Manuka Honey?
Manuka honey is a special type of honey made only by the bees who pollinate the manuka bushes of New Zealand. This honey is unique from other honeys, due to its denser consistency, dark brown color and earthier flavor. Sounds like a dream!
Manuka honey is believed to have a positive impact on your overall health—even more than other types of honey. It’s believed to improve skin, including acne and eczema. It doesn’t stop there. Manuka honey is also believed to have amazing benefits for your hair by moisturizing to fight frizz and improve shine!
Where does Manuka Honey come from?
Manuka Honey grows wild throughout New Zealand. This is the only places where manuka bushes can be found.
The Maori people, who are indigenous to New Zealand, have known of the benefits of the manuka bush for generations. They use the manuka bush for its medicinal properties, inhaling the steam from boiling manuka leaves, applying the oil and antiseptic and even using the bark to soothe skin conditions.
