Hello! I'm using UMF 20+ Manuka honey!
They are supposed to measure the 'strength' of the honey's healing properties.
If you are just eating it daily, a low UMF which is cheaper is good enough (100x stronger than normal honey)
Because of it's strength, people use it for things like healing minor cut wounds or apply on acne skin too.

Below are some info to help you understand:

UMF® Manuka honey is tested for Non Peroxide Activity(NPA), which is exclusive to some batches of Manuka Honey. NPA is a very stable and very powerful non peroxide antibacterial activity that is naturally present.

Active Manuka honey is tested for Peroxide Activity (PA). All types of honey have peroxide activity. This antibacterial property is not stable - it breaks down when exposed to light and heat and the activity will degrade over time.

MGO Manuka honey is tested for Methylglyoxal which is an organic substance found in Manuka honey that contributes to the antibacterial property of Manuka honey.

Er, you buy it to apply on your skin?  Not to eat it?  I only imagine buying it for my tea/coffee.

Manuka honey can be applied on wounds especially those with UMF10 or more.

I bought UMF10 honey for daily comsumption especially on days where i feel a little more heaty, it does help in preventing sore throats or coughs. ^^

manuka honey is a natural "antibiotic" since it has antibacterial properties.
