The secret of the Maoris now in practical pastille form
The manuka, otherwise known as the tea tree, grows wild in the unspoilt landscape of New Zealand. The Maori people have used the manuka for centuries to fight against fevers, asthma, bronchitis, excema, rhumatism, as well as to promote skin healing.
Today, manuka honey is particularly appreciated for its antiseptic and antibacterial qualities, which have been scientifically proven. It is used in a number of UK hospitals to help prevent infection.
Manuka honey has a unique flavour with notes of eucalyptus, and a creamy texture. It is quite unlike any other honey that we have ever tasted and is of the very highest quality.
This honey has a UMF of 10. The UMF indicates the level of antibacterial efficacity of the honey. The UMF scale ranges from 5 to 25+, and consitutes a scientifically proved measure of antibacterial and antiseptic efficacity.
