Busy as we all are, we could all do a lot better at taking care of ourselves – eating more fruit and veg, drinking more water, getting more sleep… The list could go on forever.
But even if you’re a quick fix kind of person, you can easily make room for this one ingredient in your life: it’s our favourite health and beauty chameleon of the moment – Manuka Honey.
With its natural anti-bacterial and healing properties, a drop of manuka on a minor wound or burn can help prevent infection and reduce pain and inflammation.
Manuka honey can be taken pro-actively to help fend off any lurgies floating around. And like your good old lemon and honey when you’re feeling rough, it’s great for soothing a sore throat.
Far from being a gut-buster, manuka can aid in easier and faster digestion and helps to maintain a healthy gut. Goodbye bloating!
You’ve hit the 3pm slump. Instead of reaching for your go-to energy drink, make yourself some manuka on toast for a more natural buzz.
Just as its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties are great for healing the odd scrape or burn, you can use manuka for treating troubled skin, e.g. acne. It’s also very nourishing for the skin, being a natural moisturiser.
