 :o 25+ is impressive ! the most I have seen is the 18+ 
$35 does seem a lot but I paid £15 for 500g of the 15+ so it seems about right.

Theres some creams available that might be less messy than the honey, I havnt tried them yet, as you know my HS is good right now but I'm considering them for this crop of spots on my back. I'd like to try either the 3rd one down this list or the fourth : http://www.manukahoney.co.uk/skinproblems.html

the lip balm also looks tempting !  ;D

My only problem with the manuka honey is that it isnt very practical and damn sticky icky !  :laugh:

Hi to you all, I also love the healing properties of Manuka honey but it is difficult to get,my health shop stocks it now after I got advise in November from CP, and she was correct it really helped me with an area of 2 HS craters..It is very sticky though,and you need to cover the area up with a dressing.I get the 18+ and it costs £20.oo for 500g, I will order it from the internet next time.

Hi folks,

I've decided to add honey to my shower/bath regime:

It goes something like this -

A little bit of African soap from Akamuti (website of same name)
Oatmeal ground and mixed with French Argiletz clay (white clay for sensitive skins)
I large teaspoon of ordinary honey raided from larder


Wash with African soap (all natural ingredients - about 3)
Rinse off
Add honey to oatmeal/clay mixed with warm water in jug till watery - massage into skin until totally satisfied
Rinse off

Moisturise with oil or body butter of your choice.  I chose cocoa butter and olive oil

My skin is totally healed and no itching either..

Very soft

Still got to get rid of the blotches on my arms though

I'd rather be free and happy
Than nobody and sad

Hi I would use a dressing maybe like squared myolin, sticky around the square pad.Do you have HS on face, i have had it on temples 6 times now, maybe honey during day and mag sulphate at night with a plaster would be easier.thats what i do.
