PRINCETON, N.J. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One honey-based miracle ointment is healing every wound it touches – even those on sea turtles.

Medihoney is a unique topical care product made from Leptospermum honey ideal for the treatment of chronic wounds.

Once applied, it cleans the wound, lifts dead tissue, and provides a moist environment for the stubborn injury to finally heal.

Barry Wolfenson of Derma Sciences, Inc., manufacturers of Medihoney, says it not only works on humans, it works on animals too.

A sea turtle rescue organization in Georgia has been using the product to treat severe wounds in turtles who’ve been struck by boats. They’ve had gashes for ages, but Medihoney is finally healing them.

Additionally, Wolfenson says many happy pet owners have used Medihoney to dress wounds on their horses and dogs.

He says it works like a charm because honey – when properly sterilized – has long been recognized for its wound healing properties. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory and disinfectant.
