Apart from using honey to coat our BBQ chicken wings, could there be other uses for honey?
Well, thanks to the kind folks at HoneyIsGood.com who have sent us cheekiemonkies some honey-related products, we were about to find out.
According to Daddy, besides being a great food product, honey is a fantastic natural source of medicine. For one, honey is nature’s energy booster. In addition, it is a great immunity system builder and also, a natural remedy for many ailments.
And a honey remedy doesn't come better than a Manuka UMF™ honey.
To put it simply, research has shown that most honeys have an anti-bacterial property but some Manuka honeys have an extra anti-bacterial property, which has been named Unique Manuka Factor (UMF). UMF™ is thus the registered trademark of the active manuka honey industry group. It is tested, registered honey for medicinal purposes.
So this means that it is very effective and safe for use on wounds, burns, sore throats, and various skin conditions and even on your pets. For us 2 older monkies, it also means that Manuka helps to keep us free from mouth ulcers and nagging sore throats. Well, of course it makes for a great drink too! :)
And for the adults (like Daddy & Mummy) who always seem to complain that they live in a stressful environment (like Daddy & Mummy, again!), you may want to counter that with some Power Bee ammunition.
The Dr Bee Power Bee capsules combines the triple power strength royal jelly, with bee pollen and Vitamin C. Taken regularly, it serves to boost vitality and helps naturally to support the immune system, revitalize the body and promote general well-being.
But what about ailments, like sore throats? Daddy was just complaining about a scratchy throat the other day, no thanks to the haze.
Well, in Daddy's case, the Dr Bee Propolis Throat Spray is a godsend. Containing essential oils of aniseed, myrrh, clove and peppermint as well as UMF™ 15+ manuka honey, just a spray of it to the back of the throat twice daily made Daddy's throat normal again.
That explains why he was singing in the bathroom.
Even for mei-mei, there's something that is relevant to her as well.
The Mossop's Baby Balm is a soothing ointment tailored especially to a baby's delicate skin. Developed with gentle plant extracts and Manuka UMF™ 15+ honey, it is the answer to nappy rash!
Well, it's not only limited to nappy rash as we found out. 'Cos mei-mei's skin has been quite different from us brothers ever since she was born. She's more prone to break out in rashes, especially if she perspires a lot.
See the tiny bumps behind her neck? That area is usually hit the hardest when she perspires. And it doesn't help that she keeps wanting to scratch her neck. Poor thing hor?
We tried the baby balm on her for a few days, and look at the difference after 4 days.
As smooth as tofu I say! Hee.
No wonder she doesn't get cranky and snatch my toys anymore. :P
