What's so wonderful about Jelly Bush Honey?

Celeste Faltyn

The health benefits of honey have been known for thousands of years, however Jelly Bush Honey is super special. Jelly Bush Honey is scientifically proven to have extraordinary health benefits, so much so that is it not considered an alternative therapy. The honey we use is independently laboratory tested and certified as being active honey. Jelly Bush Honey is used for a variety of medicinal purposes in hospitals around the country due to it’s healing and immune boosting properties. Jelly Bush Honey has the equivalent benefits and is as active as the famed New Zealand Manuka honey and in some applications is said to be even more beneficial due to it's consistency.

The reason we choose to put Jelly Bush in to all of our products is because we believe it is the best possible ingredient we can provide to you. Jelly Bush has been proven to contain remarkable anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and healing qualities, all superb for your skin. Jelly Bush honey has also been shown to have intense benefits for your inner health as it boosts your immune system and also provides healing and protection from ulcers and other digestion problems. The anti-bacterial properties also assist to cure sore throats.

The honey is produced by bees that feed on the nectar of the ‘Jelly Bush’ or Leptospremum polygalifolium. This bush is part of the same family as the famed New Zealand ‘Manuka’ or Leptospermum family. Jelly Bush honey has also been found to have the most powerful antibiotic properties of any honey in the world. It is used to hospitals for wound healing purposes and has been shown to kill bacteria that are resistant to many commonly used anti-biotics, so also has potential for dealing with the ever-increasing threat of resistance to anti-biotics. The activity of the honey is measured in Australia based on the level of MGO (Methylglyoxal) activity and we use a minimum of ULF 20+. The honey we use is always independently tested and certified.

Jelly Bush Honey also tastes wonderful, so look out for our honey pots that will be released in early 2016. 

These qualities in the honey help to protect and heal the skin, assisting with ageing, acne, burns, scaring and other skin conditions. The other ingredients in our products are all natural and gentle on the skin while adding extensive benefits in their own right.  

If you have any further questions or would like to see other resources about the benefits of Jelly Bush Honey, I would love to hear from you. Until next time… Treat yourself beautifully.

With love,
