Are you struggling in trying to find the perfect stocking stuffer this year? I have the a great gift idea for that one family members who is always getting sick and is always getting everyone else sick in the household. GET THEM SOME MANUKA HONEY! Theres nothing worse than trying to spend time with family and not feeling like yourself. I have always been very interested in natural remedies and how simple ingredients can heal us. I recently discovered manuka honey through other blogs and reading about it online. I learned that it is so good for keeping those flu like symptoms away. A couple months back I got sick and I couldn't seem to break from my cough and being congested. I don't know about you but I hate going to the doctor's office and having to wait for a prescription when I have a simply alternative at home.

Manuka honey has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial properties that promote healing, help digestion, and can loosen up and sooth sore throats. It's also known for healing cuts, burns and considered to be a first-aid in ancient times. It has different levels of bio active ingredients and not all manuka honey is created equal. Unfortunately, it is kind of pricey but worth it if you don't want to get sick. On the bottle of manuka honey that you purchase, there is a grading system from 5+ to 24+ to gauge manuka honey's antibacterial strength.

I gave manuka honey a try as one last effort before caving in and going to the doctor's office. It was my second week of coughing, sneezing and being congested and within a day all my symptoms were gone.  I felt my chest loosen up, my cough was gone, and overall felt a lot better. It honestly seemed to work so fast and too good to be true. I was shocked to say the least. Anytime now that I feel like i'm getting sick i'll take a spoonful of honey right before bed to avoid being sick.  I haven't been sick ever since. Manuka honey is also really great for using it as a sweetener. I use it to sweeten up tea or my yogurt in the morning.  I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves natural remedies and superfoods, you won't be disappointed. I'll link the manuka honey that i'm using down below.  Let me know if you try it and what you guys think of it. I would love to hear if it worked for you as well. Thanks for reading you guys. Hope you all have a wonderful day.
