Women’s health advocates

Let's talk vaginal flora and holistic care!

Our priority has long been in treating infections of the skin, and it still is, but we are adding another important priority to Real Good Honey’s ethos – the intimate health and wellness of women. But issues like thrush, UTIs, bacterial vaginosis, and itching extending from clitoris to anus haven’t been openly discussed for quite a while.

While society is slowly reducing the stigma associated with these concerns, there is still some embarrassment surrounding them. With lab research confirming Real Good Honey’s medicinal range is effective against the bacteria and fungi that cause these sensitive issues such as E.coli, golden staph and candida, we are championing open dialogue for those seeking information and support.

Vaginas are both delicate and resilient, each having their own unique microbiome also known as flora, a host of living bacteria and yeast, both good and bad. What is most important is to keep these microorganisms balanced in both the digestive tract and in the vagina. Our Blackbutt TA35+ range is a powerful antimicrobial agent for targeting opportunistic pathogen overgrowth and restoring pH balance in the vagina.

How to use for:

Thrush (internal) & bacterial vaginosis/pH

Insert 8-16ml of undiluted Blackbutt TA35+ inside the vagina, locked into place with a honey plug* and place a pillow under your hips to recline your pelvis. After 1-2 hours, remove the plug whilst in the shower or on the toilet and engage your pelvic floor muscles to squeeze out as much liquid as possible. 99% of customers rave about the improved health of their vagina, but it certainly isn’t for everyone. If you experience symptoms of itching or inflammation that were not present prior to starting treatment, stop using the honey immediately. For most, symptoms resolve in 4-7 days.

* The silicone honey plug is an additional extra that must be purchased separately unless purchasing a bundle which includes this item

How to use for:

Thrush external only (labia and anus)

Apply a thin layer of Blackbutt TA25+ from front to back and leave on for at least 2 hours. If additional lubrication is needed throughout the day, dilute 1/4 of a teaspoon of honey with 1/2 a teaspoon of sorbolene cream. The Blackbutt TA35+ honey can be used as well but the ratio changes to 1 part honey 1 part cream because its a more powerful honey. For most, symptoms resolve within 2-3 days.

How to use for:


Part your labia and rub 8ml of Blackbutt TA35+ honey over the urethra (wee hole) and clitoris area, and place a pillow under your hips to recline your pelvis. Wash or wipe off after 30-60 minutes. There is often a noticeable reduction in pain, bleeding and frequency of urination within 12 hours. For most, symptoms resolve within 3 days.
