Heal Wounds Faster, The Natural Way with Manuka Honey!

Confession: I have the world's clumsiest kid.

I am not proud to say this. My sweet little Bean has GOT to take the title for world's clumsiest kid. I swear, in his 18 months of life I have spent twice as much time in the ER with him as I have with Tater, who is almost six. I really don't know what it is, but this kid is a mess! 

It's almost constant! Example: Right now, he has three (yes, THREE!) different scrapes/bumps on his face, all from DIFFERENT times. Plus a scratch on his hand and a scraped knee, both also different times. And then last night, he's laying in my bed, and somehow headbutts the wall as hard as he could! Now, add another goose egg to the top of his head! I swear, I am going to have to stop taking him out in public, I look like a child beater! 

I am always looking for something new, different and better to help treat his cuts, scrapes, all around boo-boos in general, so when I heard about Manuka Honey, I was pretty excited. 

Never heard of it? Neither had I, but I am going to enlighten you! 

Here is a little info about what exactly Manuka Honey is: 

Manuka honey is made from the New Zealand native Leptospermum Scoparium or Manuka (Manuka is the Maori name for the shrub). The beekeepers set up their hives in wild uncultivated areas in which Manuka bushes grow. The bees gather nectar from the flowers of the Manuka bush. The honey making process is enriched by the pollution free environment for New Zealand. The manuka honey can be measured for its antibacterial activity and is used for health benefits both topically and internally.
Sounds pretty cool huh? You can use Manuka Honey either orally or topically, which I thought was pretty cool. It can be used as an antiseptic for cuts, burns, scrapes, etc, and it can prevent any bacteria from infecting the wound. This can make healing quicker and more effective, which is really important to me when my kids get hurt. I love the fact that this Manuka Honey is 100% pure and natural. I am really careful when it comes to what I put in my kid's bodies, so anything pure and natural is a major plus.
