Manuka Honey is a very special type of honey that has been found to have extraordinary healing properties. It has a formulation that works by allowing the skin to absorb the core ingredients much faster and directly to the target area, easing pain much quicker.
It has been discovered that this unique type of honey contains extraordinary anti-inflammatory properties when applied topically to the skin. It can help relieve muscular back pain and joint aches and pains, and for temporary relief of minor to mild arthritis pain.
Manuka Honey has become known as the ‘healing honey’ as many of its therapeutic properties have now been well documented.
The honey is made from a plant native to the shores of New Zealand. Its Latin name is Leptospermum Scoparium but has been given the name Manuka by the Maori people of New Zealand.
The bushes grow in the wild uncultivated areas of the country, predominantly around coastal areas with the East Cape area of the North Island having a particularly concentrated area. Here the beekeepers will set up their hives allowing the bees to gather the nectar from the flowers of the Manuka bush.
One of the particular advantages of New Zealand is that it is not densely populated, which means there is a lack of pollution in the air which contributes to the honey making process. For more information a good website to look on is http://www.manukahoneycures.com/MA
