THE MANUKA MIRACLE

"SOOTHE STRESSED SKIN: The honey from Om Aroma & Co.'s Manuka Honey Masque draws impurities from the skin with its anti-bacterial and detoxifying properties..." - Harper's Bazaar.com

All the rage in the beauty industry now, Manuka Honey is known for its powerful healing and detox qualities.
 
A healing blend of Manuka Honey with organic extracts encourage cell regeneration, revealing soft and radiant skin.
 
  • Manuka Honey draws impurities from the skin. It is so powerful in its anti-bacterial properties that it was used to clean out soldier's wounds. 
  • Organic Papaya and Apricot Extracts gently lift and remove dull skin cells for a brighter, smoother complexion.
  • Suitable for all skin types. Do not use if allergic to bees. 
  • Om Aroma uses "UMF Manuka Honey*".
"With its sticky, molasses-like texture, this mask looks like pure manuka honey (though a bevy of organic fruit and herb extracts are added to help brighten and smooth the skin). We particularly dig the spa-like ritual this mask requires — a warm, damp towel to the face after application forces us to breathe in the sinus-clearing aroma of sage and, more importantly, relax without visual distraction, for 10 whole minutes. Ahh..." - Refinery 29
 
How to use: 
Combine quarter-size amount of masque with 5-10 drops of Pumpkin Serum. Apply to face with a mask brush or using clean fingers. Cover face with warm moist towel for 5-10 minutes. May also apply before the shower; allow steam to melt the honey into your skin. Take off masque using the towel and warm water. Apply moisturizer and see the gorgeous glow!

MORE ON MANUKA

From Web MD: Manuka honey is produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush. Advocates say it treats wound infections and other conditions.

Healing Power of Honey

Honey has been used since ancient times to treat multiple conditions. It wasn't until the late 19th century that researchers discovered that honey has natural antibacterial qualities.manuka honey

Honey protects against damage caused by bacteria. Some honey also stimulates production of special cells that can repair tissue damaged by infection. In addition, honey has an anti-inflammatory action that can quickly reduce pain and inflammation once it is applied.

But not all honey is the same. The antibacterial quality of honey depends on the type of honey as well as when and how it's harvested. Some kinds of honey may be 100 times more potent than others.

Components of Manuka Honey
Hydrogen peroxide is a component of honey. It gives most honey its antibiotic quality. But some types of honey, including manuka honey, also have other components with antibacterial qualities.

The major antibacterial component in manuka honey is methylglyoxal (MG). MG is a compound found in most types of honey, but usually only in small quantities.

In manuka honey, MG comes from the conversion of another compound -- dihydroxyacetone -- that is found in high concentration in the nectar of manuka flowers.

MG is thought to give manuka honey its antibacterial power. The higher the concentration of MG, the stronger the antibiotic effect.

Honey producers have developed a scale for rating the potency of manuka honey. The rating is called UMF, which stands for Unique Manuka Factor.

*The UMF rating corresponds with the concentration of MG. Not all honey labeled as manuka honey contains significant levels of MG. To be considered potent enough to be therapeutic, manuka honey needs a minimum rating of 10 UMF. Honey at or above that level is marketed as "UMF Manuka Honey" or "Active Manuka Honey."
