Manuka honey is the 'champagne' of honey
What is manuka honey?
Manuka honey is a special type of honey made by the bees that only pollinate the manuka bushes of New Zealand. What sets Manuka honey apart from other types of honey is its denser consistency, dark brown colour, and earthier flavour. Doesn’t it sound like a dream?
Manuka honey tends to have a greater positive impact on your health than the other types of honey —it improves your skin, and helps you get rid of acne and eczema —but wait, there’s more! Another incredible benefit of using Manuka honey for your hair is that it possesses incredible moisturising properties that can tame your frizzy hair and gives it a lustrous sheen. Our Manuka honey shampoo does exactly this! Bid adieu to frizzy hair and flaunt strong, hydrated hair.
Where does manuka honey come from?
Real Manuka honey grows wild throughout New Zealand. This is the only place in the world where Manuka bushes can be found and the flowers bloom for just two to six weeks in a year. Quite rare, isn’t it?
The Maori people, who are indigenous to New Zealand, are well-acquainted with the benefits of the Manuka bush for generations. The Manuka bush is quite popular for its medicinal properties — the leaves are added to boiling water for steam therapy, its oil is used as an antiseptic, and the bark is used to soothe irate skin conditioners. This is what makes the Manuka bush a multipurpose ingredient!
