Try manuka honey! First of all, it’s absolutely delicious! Second, it battles some serious ailments effectively. It can be used both topically and internally. Honey producers have developed a scale for rating the anti-bacterial properties of manuka honey. The rating is called UMF, which stands for Unique Manuka Factor. Some types will have a UMF rating on the jar but not be licensed, so look for a UMF license number on the jar to be sure you are getting the potency you are paying for. I have tried three licensed brands purchased from Amazon, Tahi, Happy Valley, and Kiva, and my favorite has been the Tahi. Wild Cape brand gets excellent reviews as well. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=tahi. Try different potencies. To be considered potent enough to be therapeutic, manuka honey needs a minimum rating of 10 UMF, but there are also 5+, 12+, 15+, 18+, and 20+ options. The higher the UMF, the higher the price.
