mauka gelNot actually for tea, but as an amazing solution for a whole range of holiday hazards. This is not straight from the jar – too messy – but hose clever New Zealanders at Living Nature have harnessed the power of  Manuka Honey  and Manuka Oil and turned them into a soothing gel that in a tiny tube can really make a difference to your holiday first aid kit.

I could not believe how such a tiny tube could work its magic but it is rich in nutrients, including anti-ageing antioxidants and has  a unique antibacterial action as well as powerful antimicrobial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.  Nor is this ‘alternative hype’ as it has been is scientifically proven to promote healing of broken skin which seems to happen to me on a regular basis as I am martyr to paper cuts and this really soothes and heals it faster.

If you need help with insect bites, skin irritations like prickly heat, hives , cold sores, spots, blisters and even minor sunburn then you won’t find a more effective solution in such a tiny package. Add it to your handbag as you never know when you might need it.  

Living Nature’s Manuka Honey Gel should be in your local health store, but if not visit their website at
