DIY Manuka Honey Recipe For Preppers

Manuka Honey is gaining in popularity today.  Unfortunately, it’s expensive.  Really expensive.   This DIY Manuka Honey Recipe is a homemade alternative I use and enjoy.

Properties of Manuka Essential Oil

Steam distilled from the leaves and stems of the plant, Manuka oil has a woodsy, slightly sweet scent. Manuka essential oil can be compared to Tea Tree essential oil, as Manuka oil benefits the skin in a similar way.
