Unlike regular Honey, Manuka Honey is not as sweet. It has a stronger, more bland flavour.
- Apply directly to your skin - if you are treating sore, dry or blistered skin you should apply Manuka Honey directly to the are affected and wrap in a dry bandage.
- Taken orally from the spoon – this is the most popular way of taking Manuka Honey, just neat off the spoon.
- In a warm (not hot) drink – Manuka Honey can be used as a sweetener in Tea and Coffee but do not put it into a boiling cup of water as this will kill off most of the active enzymes.
- On your breakfast – Adding Manuka Honey to your toast, breakfast cereal or yoghurt, is a great way to take Manuka Honey without realising it. This method is particularly popular for children.
It is important to remember that the natural enzymes are key to the way in which Manuka Honey works, therefore it is important to not kill off the enzymes by subjecting them to heat above 40 degrees centigrade.
