Mānuka honey is one of the world’s oldest natural remedies, a universal panacea to whatever ails you. It has been long known that Mānuka heals. Whether it’s to heal a wound, or a soothing spoonful in your favourite tea, in a mug of hot water, or simply a delicious spoon by itself – it’s always a delight! This honey is a gift from the bees and it comes from just one very special tree, the Mānuka Tree - only found in New Zealand.
Inside every jar is the taste of the New Zealand wilderness. A distinctly complex honey with a floral edge which is remarkably smooth, rich with wonder and unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
The colour comes in gorgeous soft tones of amber and bronze.
The Magic of Mānuka
For centuries, Māori (the first people of New Zealand) recognised the power of the Mānuka tree. They used the bark, the oil and flowers for natural remedies.
Mānuka honey came later – now well advanced and scientifically proven for it’s unique antibacterial and healing properties.
The higher the concentration of Mānuka, the better healing quality of the honey.
