New Year, New You: Get Healthy with Melora Manuka Honey

We usually think of honey as a sweetener.  But did you know that manuka honey is a natural anti-inflammatory that protects against oxidative damage, kills bacteria ten times more effectively than regular table honey, helps wounds heal and eases common digestion and stomach issues?


Sourced from the Manuka super plant, it can also be used topically as a healing face mask. Here's a DIY mask recipe from the Melora manuka honey brand:
  • 1 teaspoon of manuka honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of rose water
  • Mix the ingredients.
  • Wet your face lightly to make the application easier.
  • Apply the mixture all over your face with clean fingers.
  • Leave it on for a minimum of 20 minutes of more.
  • Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry.

If you have sensitive skin, skip the cinnamon. And when mixing Melora manuka honey with tea or water for ingestion, let the water cool to a warm temperature before adding.  Boiling or extremely hot water will kill off most of the active enzymes.


But why Melora manuka vs. other manuka honey?

  Melora is the the only non-GMO, UMF-certified honey on the market.
  Wild harvested by a dedicated team of beekeepers.
   Raw and unpasteurized.
   Fair Share profit partnership with local Maori landowners.
   Proven plant origin and potency through scientific testing. 
   Melora CEO, Karl Gradon, is a Wharton graduate with a background biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics.

Melora manuka honey is available in the U.S. at select Costco stores.
