Internal uses for Manuka Honey:

Sore Throat

Take 1 teaspoon of  Manuka Honey and let it melt slowly in the mouth first; then swallow to coat out the mouth and throat. Do not eat or drink 15 minutes after taking the honey to keep the honey concentrated. If you still have a sore throat in an hour or two, take your second teaspoon. Repeat this 1-4 times a day (if you are not diabetic).

Occasionally, when Active Manuka Honey is used on an external wound, it can burn and sting for a while, because of it's high activity level. If the burning and stinging persists after 5-10 minutes, the Active Manuka Honey must be removed from the wound and can be replaced with Regular Manuka Honey. The Regular Manuka Honey should not burn and sting at all when applied to a wound and can still be quite effective in helping the wound heal all natural for both humans and animals.

Which Manuka Honey strength should I use for internal or external applications?

Active Manuka Honey with a UMF range between 16-18:

Internal uses of Active Manuka Honey include: acid reflux, esophaghitis, heartburn, gastritis, up-set stomach (after food poisoning), stomach ulcer, h. pylori (helicobacter pylori = stomach ulcer causing bacteria), duodenal ulcer, ibs (irritable bowel syndrome) and mild forms of diverticulitis and colitis, short, Active Manuka Honey is used to help sooth and heal gastro-intestinal issues naturally.

External uses of Active Manuka Honey include:
First degree burn, second degree burn, third degree burn, chemical burns (after thoroughly washing off chemicals with cool water), wounds, infectious wounds, MRSA and/or VRE staph infected wounds, wounds that just wont heal with traditional medicine such as antibiotic ointments, cortison creams etc. old war wounds, amputation stump wounds, chronic wounds, post-operative scars (after caesarean, shoulder or hip operations, cosmetic surgery, tummy tuck, face lift, any surgery that leaves a scar...) first aid wound treatment, ulcers, decubitus ulcers, skin ulcer, diabetic foot ulcers, diabetic leg ulcers, diabetic wound, sores, bed sores, leg sores, scars, insect stings, insect bites, poison oak, poison ivy, minor cuts, abrasions, scratches, itches, severe adult or teenage acne...

How to apply Active Manuka Honey to any type of wound?

Active Manuka Honey is applied to burns, wounds, ulcers, sores, surgical scars, decubitus sores (bed sores), diabetic leg and foot ulcers, amputation stump wounds and other MRSA and VRE staph infected wounds. Gently wash the wound with a saline solution. Apply Active Manuka Honey to a sterile gauze, similar like spreading honey onto a toast, not too much and not too little. Then apply the gauze with the honey attached to the wound. Apply 2-3 additional layers of gauze on top of the first gauze layer, in order to help soak up excess body fluid and honey. Secure gauze around the edges with skin friendly paper tape to keep the gauze in place.

Change the Active Manuka Honey Wound Dressing once every 24 hours in the evening. Again gently wash the wound with a saline solution and apply the next honey dressing, until the wound is completely healed.

If a wound has a mal odor, it is infected. Once you start applying Active Manuka Honey to a wound, you can expect the mal odor to subside within 5-10 days, depending on the size and depth of the wound, that is about how long it takes to help clear up the infection. Next you will notice that the wound will appear less and less deep. Then you should start to see healthy pink skin form around the edges of the wound and last you’ll notice the edges of the wound shrinking in size, until the wound is completely healed.

We recommend that you document the wound healing progress by taking good, sharp clear digital photos with good lighting. Take a photo about every 3-4 days or more, depending on how fast the wound is healing. When you submit the wound photos to us, and with your permission to publish the photos online at www.manukahoneyusa.com/CustomerTestimonies.htm, we will send you a reward including free shipping. By submitting your photo story to us, you will help other people by encouraging them to give this medicinal honey a try.

Active Manuka Honey with a UMF 10+

Most people use Active Manuka Honey with a UMF range between 16-18 for internal and external applications. However for some people this honey may be too strong and could burn and sting when applied to an external wound. If one feels a burning or stinging sensation lasting longer than 10-15 minutes after application to a wound, or it is simply too painful, one needs to wash off the honey and do one of the following things:

1. Switch to using Active Manuka Honey 10+ for external wound care, or

2. Mix Active Manuka Honey with a UMF range between 16-18 with equal parts, 50/50, with Regular Manuka Honey, then re-apply this mix to the wound. This way you are still using Active Manuka Honey with a lesser strength. This mix should no longer burn or sting. However, for a few people who are extremely sensitive this 50/50 mix may still be too strong. In this case you could try using just Regular Manuka Honey for wound care, as Regular Manuka Honey still has natural anti-bacterial strength, a strength that is less than UMF 10.

Regular Manuka Honey:
Regular Manuka Honey is used for medicinal purposes when experiencing a sore throat, cold, canker sore, fever blister or for manuka honey facials when suffering from acne,  pimples or other skin care issues. Spas mix Regular Manuka Honey into their secret blend of facial masks and body toners. The customer may never know, why the facial mask feels so good and cleansing, clearing the skin from impurities, thanks to the honey's natural "drawing effect". After the facial, the skin feels nice, clean, plump and nourished. You can also use 100% Regular Manuka Honey for facials you can do at home.

Instructions for Manuka Honey Facials:

Tie hair up and away from face. Wash face with Royal Jelly Soap and pat skin dry. Take 1-2 teaspoons of Regular Manuka Honey and spread all over face, the same way you apply sunscreen. Leave Manuka Honey mask on for 30-60 minutes, then wash off with warm water. For dry skin type, apply 7 Cream to face after facial. For regular skin, apply Royal Jelly Hand & Body Lotion which is also used for the face. If you have a more severe, infected adult acne type problem, you can use Active Manuka Honey for the facial.

Regular Manuka Honey is also eatable and tastes delicious in tea, on toast, mixed with butter or peanut butter and is also used as the 'secret' ingredient in cooking, baking and BBQ sauces. Manuka Honey adds a special, unique and non-descript flavor, that no one can really pin point (not even chef cooks!).

Important Note:
After listening to our customer's feedback since 1994, we know that an Active Manuka Honey with a UMF range between 16-18 is the most effective, beneficial and therapeutic for both internal and external applications.

This is the reason, why Manuka Honey USA does not promote Active Manuka Honey with a rating of 20+,25+,30+ etc. because it is way too strong! Not only will you pay a lot more money for such extremely high rated honey, but most people will experience adverse reactions. No, pain, no gain, is NOT true when it comes to healing internal and external ailments naturally with Active Manuka Honey.

When searching information online, one clearly gets the impression that "the higher the UMF rating the better". For more information about the UMF Rating and the most beneficial UMF range, click on the following link:

In Summary:
Use Active Manuka Honey with a UMF range between 16-18 first, if too strong, try Active Manuka Honey 10+ or mix Active Manuka Honey with a UMF range between 16-18, equal parts 50/50 with Regular Manuka Honey.

  • Sinusitis / Breathing Problems / Bronchitis

Customer Testimony: How Active Manuka Honey helped with H. Pylori and Breathing Problems

I was diagnosed with h. pylori after having severe stomach pain and swelling. My stomach was swollen, hard and very painful. I also experienced stomach cramps. The swollen stomach caused a condition which made it hard for me to breath. This made my asthma and breathing problems worse. I was taking breathing treatments several times a day and could barely catch a breath. I spent most of the day in bed. My wife purchased Active Manuka Honey for me. After only two months, my condition significantly improved to the extent that I no longer have to use the breathing machine. I found relief for my stomach with Active Manuka Honey, now I can breath. You have made a believer out of me! Thank you. Sincerely J.T. Poplar Bluff MO

Customer Testimony: How Manuka Honey helped with Sore Throat, Sinusitis and Bronchitis

"We encountered Manuka Honey when my daughters were traveling in New Zealand. My youngest daughter had sinusitis and sore throat and felt generally lousy. The girls stopped in on old friends of the family and she was offered hot water with lemon and Manuka Honey. The cure was nearly immediate and almost miraculous because she had chronic sinusitis. After they were home (having bought a jar of Manuka Honey) one daughter had bronchitis, went to the doctor and took a very expensive, broad spectrum antibiotic. She felt better in a few days, still coughing up lots of stuff. The next week, the youngest also caught bronchitis and I called the doctors office only to learn that they were booked solid for the next three days (lots of bronchitis and sinusitis going around). Unwilling to go to the emergency room of the hospital, we decided to try Manuka Honey in green tea. She felt better, then took a soaking bath with herbal additives, more Manuka Honey in tea and a long nap--she now is healthier than her sister who was treated a week earlier with prescriptive antibiotics!"  G.W. California

Every time I get a canker sore, I apply some manuka honey. The honey seems to numb the canker sore pain almost instantly. My canker sores usually heal in 2-3 days. I apply the honey early on, so the canker sore doesn't get a chance to get bigger and bigger - works for me. Thanks!

What is the difference between Regular Manuka Honey and Active Manuka Honey?
Regular Manuka Honey and Active Manuka Honey, are both collected from the flower of the Manuka Bush (leptospermum scoparium) in New Zealand, and are sold in the US by Manuka Honey USA. Manuka Honey is less concentrated than Active Manuka Honey. Manuka Honey is used for sore throats, colds, canker sores, fever blisters, acne and pimples. Manuka Honey also tastes great in tea or on toast with peanut butter! Active Manuka Honey is collected in an area where the Manuka Bush is highly concentrated, therefore producing a more concentrated honey. Dr. Molan from the Waikato University of New Zealand has been researching Manuka Honey for over 20 years and has classified various strengths of Manuka Honey.

Can Active Manuka Honey be used for Animals?
Active Manuka Honey can also be used for house pets such as cats and dogs, as well as for Farm animals such as cows, horses, sheep, goats, rabbits etc.

For Internal Ailments, as listed above, apply 1 teaspoon of Active Manuka Honey to a dog or cat biscuit or any other type of animal food (one bite size) and give it to your pet 20 min. before feeding time 2-3 times daily for acid reflux, heartburn, up-set stomach, stomach etc. Depending on the size of the pet, you can give a half a teaspoon 3x daily, such as for cats.

For External Applications, simply apply Active Manuka Honey to a sterile gauze and apply the gauze with the honey to any type of wound, burns, sores, scar etc.
