Before going into the details, did you know that bees exists on this planet for more than 100 million years, and in fact they co-lived with dinosaurs 😊

Any honey must come from a plant source and Manuka honey is no exception. Leptospermum scoparium, as everyone knows as Manuka is a wild bush tree that grows extensively through out New Zealand in remote regions. Naturally, there is a perfect bond between bees and plants. So, our lovely bees pollinate the Manuka flower and collect its nectar, which is full of bioactive compounds. They just don’t sit on nectar; they spit they dance they pray, and they do the magic to convert that nectar into Manuka honey.
