Manuka Honey

Manuka Honey

Made in New Zealand from the Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium) flowers after pollination by bees.

If you are looking to buy Manuka honey, make sure to find one that has a high Unique Manuka Factor(UMF) which is the antibacterial strength of the honey. UMF is not in nectar of all Manuka flowers and actually contains natural hydrogen peroxide and it’s own antibacterial properties compared to nonUMF Manuka Honey. It is best to look for UMF of 10+ and over.
