Why Manuka Honey?
Yes, you can sip on homemade lemonade and boost your immune system at the same time.
This medicinal grade, rare and thoughtfully aged raw Mānuka Honey is full of antibacterial properties and active enzymes straight from Mother Nature—this is not your normal baking honey!
Mānuka has been proven to have efficacy against antibiotic-resistant microbes, promoting its healing powers against pathogens internally and externally. When sick, it improves sore throats, helps soothe coughs and improves common cold symptoms. Mānuka also helps people with acute sinus problems and allergies. And it works—you’ll notice a quick difference as you add this to your daily wellness rituals.
A healthy lemonade for the whole family
So many summer drinks, especially those marketed towards children (yes, even the “healthier” ones) are full of processed sugars, in large amounts, preservatives and other synthetic ingredients. This Mānuka Honey Mint Lemonade uses all fresh, totally natural ingredients everyone loves.
This can be a great way to boost your children’s immune system with a sweet drink they already love made with totally natural, healthy ingredients! Your little ones can even help you mix it together!
