Benefits of Medical Grade Honey for Preppers

Honey has been used in wound care for centuries, all the way back to the ancient Egyptians.  Today, people  swarm to Medical Grade Honey for it’s healing properties.

What Is Medical Grade Honey?

Made from New Zealand’s Manuka honey (Leptospermum species), *this post contains affiliate links MediHoney contains  Methylglyoxal, a unique ingredient that provides it’s strong antibiotic benefits.

Interestingly,  pH content of Medical Honey is  more acidic than any other honey, which means much faster wound healing.

How To Use MediHoney

Use MediHoney in paste or gel form like any other wound cream.  Derma Sciences also offers dressings for shallow wounds.

G-Tubes and Excema

One way I use Medical Honey is around my son’s g-tube site.  This miracle honey helps with skin breakdown as well as protecting against inflammation.

Then we have my son’s Remicade treatments causing eczema flares, and this stuff works wonders on eczema.   No kidding.

So.  Medical Grade Honey Is Expensive.

There’s no doubt that Medical Grade Honey comes with a bit of a price tag. While it’s worth the price, I understand the word ‘budget’, too.  Boy do I ever.  So much so that I wrote about how I make my own version of medical grade honey in my post about my DIY Manuka Honey Recipe

The 2018 Young Living Premium Starter Kits:

Young Living Premium Starter Kit Options


All of the above oils are available in Premium Starter Kit that includes a diffuser. While the diffuser is not practical in an emergency situation, these essential oils for prepping can all be used on their own and are small enough to pack in your Bug Out Bag, ESPECIALLY the sample sizes.

However, if diffusing your oils is your preferred means of utilizing their benefits, then you’ll want to check into personal diffusers that you can easily fit in your bag.

It’s true, oils are not inexpensive, but when you know how to use them the cost is more than justified in your prepping. Please do not buy “cheap” essential oils for prepping that you find in big box stores or possibly adulterated versions online. This is your family you are investing in.
