Our Manuka Honey Tonic Mist has been captured through the process of steam distillation of the potent aromatic compounds found in the flowers, leaves, and stems of the Manuka tree. It has a distinctively, rich, herbaceous scent with a slightly sweet and spicy undertone.
Manuka has been documented as being approximately 30 times more effective at protecting against specific strains of bacteria, including MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staph. Aureus).
