About Green Bay Manuka Honey:
What is Manuka honey?
Manuka honey is made by bees from the nectar produced by the Manuka bush (Leptospermum Scoparium), a relative of the tea tree, which grows exclusively in New Zealand.
What does Active mean?
This refers to the antibacterial activity in honey. The Manuka bush has antibacterial properties which are also found in the honey produced from the bush: the strength of this activity can be measured by comparing its capacity to fight bacteria with that of a standard antibacterial agent, such as phenol.
Is Manuka runny or set?
Green Bay honey is thick and runny: however, if it starts to set and you prefer it runny, you can reheat it gently without damaging its nutrients or antibacterial properties (see above).
Can I put it on cuts?
Manuka honey can be used for treating minor wounds, cuts and grazes. Spreading the honey on a waterproof dressing is a good way to apply it: the dressing should be changed at least daily. The antibacterial properties are so effective that honey is used in hospital treatments: it also helps to replenish healthy tissue at the site of a wound.
