Manuka is an evergreen shrub native to New Zealand which has a long history of medicinal use by Maori. European settlers too discovered the virtues of the herb and even used it as a substitute for tea.
Manuka oil NZ made is a very good oil to be effective when used as an antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory. Manuka oil is a light yellow oil with a characteristic earthy, musky odour.
The main active constituents of Manuka essential oil are the Trichetones, Flavesone, Leptospermone, Isoleptospermone, and the highest levels of these are only found in plants ( Leptospermum Scoparium) growing naturally on New Zealand’s remote “East Cape”.
Research has confirmed that particularly against bacteria such as Staphylococcus and Streptococcus and Pathogenic Fungi, Manuka Oil has higher antibacterial and antifungal activity than Tea Tree Oil ( Melaleuca Alternifolia).
It is very important to understand that only East Cape Chemotype Manuka has potent antimicrobial characteristics. Our manuka oil NZ sourced from the East Cape and sold in our shop on Jackson street Petone Wellington and in our online shop.
