Uses of Active Jellybush Honey
High in Antioxidants
High in Hydrogen Peroxide Releasing Enzymes
High in ULF (TM). - The Unique Letospermum Factor Activity
Jellybush gets its name from the thick gel like nature of the honey that the bees gather from Leptospermum flowers. Active Jellybush Honey contains both hydrogen peroxide releasing enzymes and the Unique Leptospermum Factor (ULF).
Both of these plant properties, the hydrogen peroxide releasing enzymes and the Unique Leptospermum Factor (ULF) have been researched by honey institutes in Australia and around the world and have been proven to have antimicrobial properties. Active Jellybush Honey also contains phenolic compounds such as flavanoids which have known antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
The antioxidants within the honey are also able to reduce the effects of free radical damage.
These natural properties impart potent cleansing qualities to the honey with proven health benefits when taken internally or applied externally to the skin.
Directions: Squeeze Antibacterial Honey onto a clean non adhesive dressing, using approximately 25g for a 10x10 bandage and apply to the affected area . Be sure to completely cover the wound site, leaving no air pockets between the dressing and the effected area. Daily dressing changes are usual but if the dressing becomes too wet this can indicate that more frequent dressing changes are required.
It is normal to experience a short - lasting stinging sensation after applying Antibacterial Honey to the wound site. Should pain, irritation, redness and swelling persist and the condition being treated does not appear to improve discontinue use, remove the dressing and wash the Antibacterial Honey off the wound site and consult your doctor. For the first aid treatment of wounds and burns. In case of serious wounds and burns consult your doctor.
