The start of autumn, though conjuring beautiful imagery of falling leaves and cosy feelings, also sees the days turn dark and illnesses passed around.

Thanks to its antimicrobial activity, Manuka honey has grown a great reputation, making it a sought-after product for culinary, beauty and even medicinal uses. Created from the Manuka flower (Leptospermum scoparium), the plant is native to New Zealand and blooms for just 2-6 weeks every year. Together with its benefits and great taste, this rarity is another reason why antimicrobial Manuka honey is so revered – making possessing some, a true gift from nature.
