    What Is So Special About Manuka Honey? - PURITI

    Pure Manuka honey from New Zealand is a substance highly sought after and has a number of amazing uses. The benefits have been suggested to span everywhere from oral to skin health. As a true superfood, genuine Manuka honey is used in several different methods to provide both nutritional benefits and amazing taste.

    This article will go through the unique ways Manuka honey is commonly used as well as the historical uses of the Manuka plant that delivers us this natural liquid gold. 

    1. Soothing Sore Throat

    As a creamy and rich variety of honey, Manuka honey is a natural throat soother. Thanks to the viscous nature of this precious New Zealand honey, swallowing it has been reported to bring instant relief to irritated throats.


    According to a scientific review conducted in 2004, Manuka honey has been noted for its non-peroxide antibacterial activity. 

    2. Commonly Used In Skincare

    More and more people have become interested in the application of Manuka honey within skincare. Applying Manuka honey to the skin has been reported to decrease the presence of blemishes and soothe acne-prone skin.


    Additionally, there have been suggestions that Manuka honey can add a barrier of moisture to the skin. People across the globe suffer from dry or flakey skin and this extract of pure New Zealand gold is growing in popularity as a potential solution for many. Fans of natural skincare, particularly, will appreciate Manuka honey for the versatile and delicious treat that it is.


    Recent reports have come out showing that Manuka honey may increase and better maintain the production of collagen within the skin. Collage is one of the fundamental components of the skin that retain elasticity and are responsible for maintaining youthful looks to the skin.

    3. Originating From The Revered Manuka Plant

    Although Manuka honey has been a popular item for the last few decades, the history of the Manuka plant (from which it is derived) extends all the way back to the indigenous Maori population. Often, the Maori people would use components of this plant as part of Rongoa Maori (traditional medicine).


    The bark of the Manuka tree was applied to the body internally and externally as a sedative for scolds and burns. Furthermore, the ash from the bark was applied topically to the skin to assist in skin disease healing. Finally, there were also reports that the inner sections of the bark would be boiled and that the resulting liquid was used as a mouthwash.


    As the cousin of the iconic Tea Tree, the native Manuka plant has several historical applications of natural medicine. It should come as no surprise that there is an increased interest in this plant and the subsequent honey. Manuka honey provides a delicious taste that shares a lineage of honey that has been used for medicinal purposes throughout history.
