During pregnancy many women become acutely aware that anything they put on their skin or ingest in their body has the potential to be passed onto their unborn baby. Many women choose to switch to natural products and organic foods during this time to keep healthy and minimise any toxic chemical exposure to themselves and their unborn baby.
At Manuka Honey of NZ we think this is also a great time to keep a jar of high UMF/MGO Manuka Honey in the cupboard. At least 10+ UMF or 250+ MGO so you can harness medicinal benefits as well as the delicious taste.
Used topically and as well eaten Manuka Honey is an essential addition to a healthy, natural regime at this exciting time in a woman's life.
Hormonal changes while pregnant can mean women are more prone to skin conditions like acne. Dab some Manuka Honey on breakouts or use as an antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and moisturising face mask - After cleansing spread a teaspoon of Manuka Honey over entire face on slightly damp skin, leave on for as long as possible 15-30 mins before rinsing off.
Tea, toast, smoothies – anything you want to add a sweet touch to just add a spoonful of Manuka Honey. Yum!
Feeling tired? Just eat it straight off the spoon for the sweet treat craving and energy boost. Keep a jar of Manuka Honey in your birth bag for a quick energy boost while in labour and then keep it close by when you are breastfeeding for a better option when tiredness and hunger can lead you to craving sweets.
