Manuka Honey
This genuine New Zealand honey comes directly from the bees to you. It has completely natural anti-biotic, antiseptic, antifungal and antiviral properties which are believed to be up to 100 times more powerful than ordinary honey. It can be taken raw from the spoon, in smoothies and with lemon and ginger in hot water, and can be eaten as you would any other honey, on porridge and toast.

Artwork can be delivered to your door with prices ranging from £175 to £10,000.

As the FT says New Blood Art "Offers bargains to those looking to invest in fledgling artists who have yet to make a name for themselves."
