Mildura Weekly : Friday April 1 Vol 10 No 21
24 NEWS MILDURA WEEKLY FRIDAY, APRIL 1, 2016 AS we move into the cooler months, cold and flu season can start to strike. If you do catch a case of the sniffles this year, a natural alternative to assist in its symp- toms is manuka honey. Unlike regular honey, manuka honey is made by bees that feed on the flowers of the jellybush plant. Manuka honey is distinctively darker, rich- er and has a different taste to regular honey. The powerful healing properties in manu- ka honey was used by indigenous cultures for thousands of years as an antibiotic for many illnesses. Here are just some of the ben- efits of manuka honey that might make you add a teaspoon into your diet. Be careful of consuming too much honey as it is still a source of sugar, meaning that an exces- sive intake can lead to weight gain. Strengthens immunity: If you are feeling a cold or a sore throat coming on, the high levels of antibacterial properties in manuka honey can aid in the treatment of ulcers, sore throat, cold sore, skin infections, cuts and abrasions. Improves digestion: Manuka honey is great for improving gut health and bloating. It contains a natural pre-biotic which is important for nurturing the gut’s good bacte- ria and naturally restoring balance in the di- gestive system. Assists in sleep: Manuka honey causes the body to release melatonin, the hormone that controls sleep. A teaspoon in a herbal tea or warm milk before bed will have a relaxing effect and help you fall into a peaceful slumber. Enhances skin: Manuka honey also has beauty benefits. The product’s antibacterial properties have been found to be an alternative topical treat- ment for acne, insect bites, burns, eczema and sunburn. It’s also a natural moisturiser and im- proves skin hydration because of its ability to absorb moisture directly from the air and draw it into the skin. Try this manuka honey face mask for smooth skin and a healthy glow and to reap the benefits of the ancient remedial product. DIY manuka honey mask Ingredients: 1 small organic green apple 4-5 tablespoons of honey Method: Scoop out the seeds of the apple and run the rest through a sieve to make a fine pulp. The amount of honey will depend on the size of the apple and how many masks you intend to make with it. Basically, the quantity of honey should be sufficient to mix well with the pulp. Mix well into a paste and apply to the face. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes for the mask to dry a little. Remove the mask with warm water.
