Kānuka: Unique New Zealand Honey
Kānuka Honey comes from the Kānuka tree (Kunzea ericoides) which is closely related to the world-famed Mānuka. Kānuka is indigenous to New Zealand and is plentiful in the forests of Te Urewera. And so it is that our bees gather for us another unique New Zealand honey for us to share with you. A real taste of Te Urewera.
We present this honey raw. Raw means not filtered, not heat-treated. No extra processing. Just from the hive to the jar. Nature’s gift.

Kānuka Honey also contains high levels of an anti-ageing compound call arabinogalactans (AGP) which gives it powerful anti-inflammatory properties. and has been found to be effective treatment for skin conditions such as rosacea, cold sores, acne and eczema.
