History of honey use in wound care

The use of honey for healing goes back thousands of years, to ancient Greece and Egypt. In recent years, a resurgence in the science and use of honey has driven research and clinical testing to understand the healing properties and effectiveness of medical-grade honey in wound healing. Most specifically, the Leptospermum species or Manuka plant has shown to produce a unique honey optimal for wound healing. As a result, clinicians worldwide are championing the use of medical-grade honey across the spectrum of care.
