Manuka Honey Products from PRI

manuka honey product review
I try many different products and while I love so many of them, all of them are not always all natural, and I get most excited when they actually are.  The products from Pacific Resource International are made with all-natural organic ingredients, and not tested on animals.  They are a California-based New Zealand importer that was the first to introduce Manuka Honey to American consumers, they are also family owned and run since 1985.  They offer a great variety of items with Manuka Honey covering beauty, wellness, snacks and the likes!  I got to try out some products, and am excited to share a brand that might not be well known to the everyday consumer.  These include the Manuka Honey Lip Balm, Manuka Oil in Sweet Almond Oil, Nectar Ease Manuka Honey with Bee Venom.
manuka honey lip balm
The Manuka Honey Lip Balm is made with a few simple ingredients, all natural and gentle on the lips.  I have been using it everyday, it glides on very smooth, and leaves your lips feeling super soft.  I apply often and enjoy the product under lipstick.  It does not have a strong scent or color which makes it perfect for placing under other products you may use on your lips.  PRI's Manuka Honey Lip Balm is formulated to help protect, restore and hydrate your lips.  Ingredients: Sunflower Oil*, Coconut Oil*, Honey Flavor*, Mixed Tocopherols, Rosemary Extract*, Calendula Extract*, Manuka Honey  (*Organic Ingredients)

Manuka honey and been venom for arthritis
manuka honey and bee venom nectar ease
Nectar Ease Honey is an incredibly interesting product with a unique combination of beneficial properties of pure, naturally Active Manuka Honey and Bee Venom.  Bee venom that can help those dealing with Arthritis, Inflammatory diseases, occupational overuse syndrome, tendon injuries, multiple sclerosis, and hypertension.  I had no idea Bee Venom contains Melittin, a mixture of proteins, enzymes, peptides, amines, amino acids and sugars that offer it's unique natural properties.  Although this formula is used in the treatment of this very serious health problems, I gave it a try so I can share my thoughts with you all.  I took the amount suggested and actually enjoyed the taste of it.  It is very much like pure honey itself, maybe thicker than most.  It can be taken by anyone in small doses as long as there are no allergies to it, the bee venom may assist in maintaining healthy joins, and supports the body’s natural production of cartilage.  Sourced from New Zealand Nectar Ease Manuka Honey has natural anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that help to maintain the acid-alkaline balance in the stomach.
