Manuka Honey’s Anti-Viral, Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Inflammatory, and Antiseptic Properties

The Health Benefits of Manuka Honey

The Manual

Manuka honey’s anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties are thought to be beyond comparison to other foods.

“All honey is said to have some activity level of positive benefits, but Manuka has been studied and sought after for it high non-peroxide and antibacterial activity,” says Blick. “It is dramatically more active than your average honey.”

Manuka is also used in adhesive dressings and wound gels, and as a part of DIY cleansing face masks.

“Honey has been used topically for centuries for its powerful antibacterial properties … (but) most of the average honey bear honey you see in the grocery stores lack the unique wellness compounds that are really rewarding for your skin,” says Comvita on their blog. “When it comes to beneficial properties, no honey compares to UMF Manuka Honey which contains guaranteed levels of leptosperin, methylglyoxal, and DHA.”

Yep, Manuka honey is so sought out that there have been counterfeit Manuka honey claims against faux Manuka.

And if all that sounds like mumbo jumbo, we’ll cut to the chase and tell you how to use Manuka honey this winter.


By the Spoonful

Before heading to work, suck on a spoonful of 5+ Manuka honey. Done. Easy.

In Tea

While spritzers and ice-cold beers reign supreme during the summer, winter calls for a libation switch. Drink some tea, morning, noon, or night and add your Manuka Honey into the cup.

DIY Face Mask

Once or twice a week, do a Manuka face mask to rid dead skin and other impurities. You’ll want to use a high UMF-rated Manuka honey for your masks so mix 15+ or 10+ with raw sugar and a squeezed lemon (not so much that the mixture is runny). Scrub over your face and neck, leave for 20 mins, gently remove with warm water and a washcloth.

In or With Oatmeal, Chicken, or Ham

One of the easiest ways to get a Manuka boost is to mix the honey into everyday dishes. That can include being the sweetener for your steel cut oats, peanut butter banana toast, a glaze for your teriyaki chicken, or even a honey baked ham! Who said ham couldn’t be healthy?...
