Description: Manuka is one of three tea trees indigenous to both Australia and New Zealand. Manuka essential oil from The East Cape region of New Zealand has been confirmed as having the highest antimicrobial activity. There is evidence indicating that it is up to 20 times more potent than Australian tea tree oil (Melaleuca alternifolia). Manuka oil is a medium and slightly oily oil with clear light yellow tone and a woodsy, cedar like smell that is much warmer than Tea tree.

Indications: The properties are very similar to that of Tea Tree. These include antibacterial, antifungal, anti-acne, anti-inflammatory, antihistamine, and antiallergenic properties.  Manuka oil has traditionally been used in New Zealand for its antimicrobial properties. The oil may assist in the management of acne, skin eruptions, ulcers, wounds and cuts and abrasions, including chicken pox, cold sores, insect bites and warts. 

It also relieves muscular aches and pains, coughs and colds and flu.

Emotions: Manuka oil is reputed to be a protective oil similar to myrrh and cedarwood.

Blends well with: Much like Tea Tree essential oil, Manuka oil blends well with Lavandin, Lavender, Clary-sage, Rosemary, Oak moss, Pine, Cananga, Geranium, Marjoram and spice oils – particularly clove and nutmeg.  It's Note is Top to Middle

History: Manuka has long been valued for its healing properties by the Maori people - the indigenous people of “Aotearoa” (New Zealand ) . Infusions and poultices were made from the leaves and inner bark and the seed capsules and sap were chewed. Early European migrants produced a tea from Manuka leaves for refreshment and health. The Manuka tree also produces a nectar that the bees turn into a rich amber honey. This is also known for its curative properties.

Safety: Manuka is considered to be non-toxic, nonirritant and non-sensitising.
