Although ancient Egyptians and Greeks used honey as a treatment for wounds, and despite a wide range of wounds being treated over the world with natural honeys from many different sources, MedihoneyTM is one of the pioneering certified honeys that are licensed as medical products fit for professional treatments in both Europe and Australia. The experience that we have with the success of Mānuka honey used in wound care refers only to this product. Prior clinical experience was applied using a broader perspective to allow us to comment on the use of medical honey. However, greater prospective randomised studies on a larger range of wounds would be need in order to come to a more concrete conclusion on  the safety and efficiency of medical honey in wound care. Nevertheless, current evidence confirmed antibacterial properties, along with other beneficial effects of medical honey encourages wound care professionals to adopt CE-certified honey dressings in their treatments.
