Manuka essential oil has powerful cleansing and antiseptic properties with clinical trials suggesting that it has more of an effect on MRSA bacteria than the more common tea tree oil.
Manuka essential oil has a distinctive spicy, herbaceous and fresh aroma. Our manuka essential oil originates from New Zealand and is derived from steam distillation of the leaves and twigs of the Leptospermum scoparium.
Manuka essential oil is a member of the Myrtaceae family. Also known as New Zealand Tea Tree it blends well with lavandin, pine, cananga, geranium, marjoram, lavender, clary sage, rosemary, oakmoss and spice oils particularly clove and nutmeg.
Manuka essential oil is non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitising.
