While I love Manuka Honey, it's not always easy to find and it's definitely not inexpensive.
I've had a small inner battle going on the last few weeks, a nagging feeling about singing the praises of Manuka.  Only because I'd never want to discourage business with local bee keepers of whom I aspire to be one day!  So, I came up with a solution that I'm at peace with, see what you think!
Eden Valley Honey from Farson, Wyoming (my local) and pure essential oils come together for beautiful, medicinal, affordable honey!  Happy Beekeeper, happy me!
happy!  happy!  happy!
I'm not in any way presuming that DIY Manuka is equally as beneficial as the real thing from New Zealand however, if organic, local honey and pure essential oils are the ingredients ~ it's gonna bee darn good for you too!  By adding essential oils we're only enhancing the properties of good organic honey with Melaleuca, Frankincense and Lavender.
Here's a link where you can learn more about the real thing (Manuka) so that you can make the best choice for YOU.
DIY Manuka Honey How to...
In a 4 oz. glass jar, add organic honey, stir in 1 drop Melaleuca, 2 drops Frankincense, 2 drops Lavender for the following properties:
Melaleuca:
anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-septic, anti-biotic, analgesic, anti-oxidant, anti-parasitic, anti-viral, expectorant, decongestant
Frankincense:
anti-inflammatory, anti-infectious, anti-depressant, anti-cancer
Lavender:
tissue restoration, anti-histamine, anti-coagulant, anti-convulsant, anti-depressant, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory
Seal the lid tightly and store in your home apothecary.  For wound care, sore throats, facials, eczema, breakouts.
Use in tea, topically or swallow a spoonful for sore throats, canker sores or cough.
Note: fill smaller containers for first aid kits, a jar for each bathroom in the house and your desk at work!
As you probably guessed, this isn't exactly a "tasty" honey by any means but added to warm water with lemon it makes a decent medicinal tea.  Swallowing a teaspoon is fairly painless and beneficial for a sore throat or canker sore.  And, because of the honey's antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, it's very nice as a skin treatment too!
Remember, buy local honey when possible!  It's a good cycle of health and economy for you and the community :)
 
Beeeee Well!

Thanks for this! I have ordered the Manuka, but as I was ordering I was wondering if this would work. I appreciate you’re testing the waters and then telling me about it. BTW, we love Mr. Hodder’s honey too.

Specialtybottle.com is a great site for purchasing DIY beauty holders and no minimum order. Ordered some for my mom and they were better then I expected because of the price
