I also take it internally, and use it as part of my cleanser and toner - both are from www.livingnature.com - this company uses manuka oil and honey in the majority of their products and there are many posters on this board who love them!
Here're some links for you about manuka honey:
www.manukahoney.co.uk - a very informative site
www.comvita.com - they sell manuka honey at fairly reasonable prices.
A thread where a guy on the board logs his progress with manuka honey
Best products of 2003 thread - look at the amount of people that include it as one of their favourite products!
Another great thread
Hope this is helpful! I must reiterate that it is NOT a miracle product though - just a great one!

Please back up your statement. I would like to know why it is not worth the money.

I hear that they are now producing a manuka honey with UMF 20, which is the highest yet. I think it's comvita who are producing this.
By the way, manuka OIL is even more effective than the honey against bacteria. Manuka honey is antibacterial because it is made from the manuka plant; the oil which is taken straight from the plant is essentially the plant's hormone system, and is therefore much stronger. It's 33 times more antibacterial than tea tree oil and I highly recommend it for application on active acne.
I purchase mine here: HERE (I actually shop at the UK one but I put the US address coz I know that's where the majority of members are from)
Very expensive but a brilliant product.
