    Default Manuka honey

    Talk to me about it. Good for skin? Does anyone use it? Is it very expensive? I'm seriously getting into natural beauty products and have just been reading about manuka honey.

    I have a manuka honey body moisturiser that MIL and FIL bought me from NZ. I love it, it makes my skin really soft and lovely and smells good too. No idea about $$ though as it was a gift.

    It has all kinds of uses, but the best is eating! It is seriously the nicest tasting honey.

    We love Manuka honey. We make our own moisturiser and scrubs, it's fabulous stuff. The exfoliating scrub works excellent, removes dead skin but isn't harsh and leaves skin feeling soft. It is also the only thing that has helped DF's blackheads (he has large pores over his nose so is prone to them)

    You can buy moisturisers and scrubs online for a reasonable price depending on brand, but honestly it works out cheaper making the products yourself you ger much more product and they work just as well, they are alot sticker/messier then store brought products though.

    Sorry it took me so long, was absouletly run off my feet yesterday!

    Here are the two most used recipes we use (though I have several more for oily skin/dry skin and one for a hair mask too)

    Aloe, Munuka and salt scrub -
    1 cup olive oil
    1 cup aloe vera
    2 tbls raw manuka honey
    2 cups sea salt
    2 tbls brown sugar
    1/4 cup ground almonds

    Mix until all the ingredients are well combined and store in an airtight container/tub or zip lock bag in a dry place out of direct heat

    Moisturiser -

    3tbls manuka honey
    2tbls rose water
    3tbls wheat germ oil
    2tbls glycerine - naturally sourced

    Mix all ingrdients together in a bowl using a whisk and pour into a tightly capped bottle or similar.
