How do I Use Jellybush Honey?

For external treatments:
Apply a thin layer of honey to a dry wound dressing large enough to cover the wound
Change dressing up to 3 times daily.
If there are abscesses, cavities and depressions, fill them with the active Manuka or Jellybush honey so that it is in contact with the surface of the wound.

For internal treatments:
Ulcers and Gastritis: Spread one tablespoon of honey on toast and eat 30 minutes to one hour before meals and at bedtime.
Eating the honey on bread gives the honey a longer time to dwell in the stomach. Do not take with other liquids as this will dilute the honey.
Sore throats, cold and flu: Allow one teaspoon of honey to gently melt in mouth, slowly coating the throat, four times daily. Do not disturb the healing effect by eating or drinking anything for 30 minutes.
Do not use in hot drinks as heat will destroy many of the active properties.

Cautions and possible side effects:
Active Jellybush rarely causes allergic reaction, however some people, especially those who have known allergic reactions to bee stings or other hive products (such as propolis) should avoid Active Jellybush Honey.
Jellybush should not be given to children under 12 months.
