Honey is n to be good at fighting viruses, but Manuka honey has even more clout. Extracted from the Manuka Plant, Manuka Oil also possesses naturally potent antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Research confirms that it combats the micro-organisms that cause many common skin irritations and infections. It also protects against peptic ulcers and soothes a sore throat.

Manuka Oil has been revered by the Maori people of New Zealand for centuries for its natural healing properties. The flowers of the Manuka bush are also antibacterial, so honey made by bees which collect pollen from its flowers is doubly effective in healing wounds and fighting superbugs.

‘Superbugs’ affected nearly 60,000  patients in the UK in 2022, but some hospitals are now dressing wounds with Manuka honey to kill off antibiotic-resistant infections. Studies at the Cawthron Institute in New Zealand proved that Manuka Oil is effective against 39 separate micro-organisms including the bacteria that causes acne and MRSA.
