Manuka honey is used as a natural ointment for all kinds of wounds and it’s considered to be a powerful germ fighter. This also helps in healing acne and sinus problems. Manuka honey is obtained from the Manuka scrub plant in New Zealand where honey bees introduced the product to that place during the 19th century. 

This honey is more powerful than normal honey due to its higher concentration of methylglyoxal. It’s rich in antibacterial properties and a superfood. It has numerous health benefits for us.
