While in New Zealand a couple of years ago…. I learned of a unique and natural healing nectar. While visiting the Island of Great Mercury, New Zealand…. I burned my hand on a pizza oven. Our host Michael Fay, grabbed a bucket of suspicious looking goo…. and preceded to rub the goo on my burn. The goo? Raw fresh Manuka Honey…. A “mono-floral” honey…. meaning it is predominately made by bees that interact with just one species of flower…. the delicate small flower of the Manuka tree that is native to the shores of New Zealand. Within 24 hours my nasty burn was almost miraculously healed…. and it was nothing short of a miracle.



Every jar of Manuka honey bears UMF….. Unique Manuka Factor….. a scale that identifies the level of anti-bacterial potency. A UMF of 10 plus is the minimum requirement to gain the UMF rating. Optimal levels are 10 plus to 15 plus. 

Last but not least…. Manuka honey is amazing for a short term energy boost. Slather on toast or spill into tea or coffee for an amazing energy source.

  1. Your absolutely right, I use it in my Bullitt shakes to cut the green taste and I love it! And delicious on an English muffin!

  2. Laura,

    I burned my hand while cooking last night and used butter. It did nothing! I am going to try your honey today.

  3. As sweet as honey! I love honey! I put it in my tea, on my toast, on a banana….you name it, I’ll add honey! Didn’t think about using it for burns and other aliments! That’s awesome!

  4. I looked this up and you can buy it online. It’s not cheap, but if it does all this, it’s worth it! Putting in my order now!

  5. I love honey in my hot tea. And tis the season for hot tea! I think it’s more like I have tea with my honey! Glad to know it’s also very good for you!

  6. WOW, very helpful tip for us that cook! I can’t tell you how many times I have burned myself and ran for the butter, but even that doesn’t really help all that much. Plus I just love honey in general.
