  • $65.00 $68.80

Manuka Honey is produced by bees that collect nectar from the Manuka Bush or Tea Tree (also known as Leptospermum Scoparium) indigenous only to New Zealand.

Bees gather the nectar from the flowers of Manuka Tree.
In the hive, they add an enzyme called glucose oxidase to the nectar in order to preserve the honey.
When Manuka Honey comes into contact with body fluids, the glucose oxidase enzyme slowly releases the antibacterial hydrogen peroxide.

The levels of hydrogen peroxide released are not high enough to damage tissue but sufficient enough to affect bacteria.
