Jarrah vs


Both Jarrah from Australia and Manuka honey from New Zealand offer unique properties and potential health benefits, but the key differences lie in their floral sources, geographical origins, taste and specific compounds that contribute to their medicinal properties.


Jarrah honey

Jarrah honey, derived from Western Australia's Jarrah tree nectar, features a mild sweetness with hints of florals. This amber-coloured, velvety honey offers notable antioxidant, antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, promoting immune health. Its exclusivity, owing to the limited flowering period of Jarrah trees, contributes to its rarity.

Valued for its unique taste and potential health benefits, Jarrah honey stands as a prized delicacy, emblematic of the diverse Australian landscape and its rich, sought-after natural offerings.


Manuka honey

Manuka honey, sourced from New Zealand's Manuka bush nectar, has a robust, earthy flavor with bitter undertones. Its dark hue and potent, medicinal taste often deter some palates. Renowned for its high levels of antibacterial properties due to methylglyoxal (MGO), this honey is acclaimed for potential health benefits, primarily wound care and immunity support.

Its distinct taste, though acquired, contributes to its valued status among health-conscious consumers seeking its specific medicinal attributes.

3 Reasons why Jarrah honey is our winner...


Manuka honey is antibacterial, but Jarrah honey is ANTIMICROBIAL. While Manuka honey has been known to have some antimicrobial properties, it’s at a much lower level than Jarrah honey.

Antibacterial means active against bacteria. Antimicrobial means active against microbes, (eg bacteria, fungi or viruses) meaning that our honey has three benefits in one.


The taste of Manuka honey and Jarrah honey can be quite distinct due to their different floral sources and geographical origins.

Manuka honey is known for its bold, strong and medicinal flavour. On the other hand, Jarrah honey tends to be milder, smoother and sweeter, with delicate floral and nutty undertones.


Jarrah is produced by bees that collect nectar from the flowers of the Jarrah tree (Eucalyptus marginata), which is native to Western Australia, one of the last pesticide free places on Earth.

Manuka honey comes from bees that pollinate the flowers of the Manuka bush found in New Zealand and parts of Australia.
