Manuka 10ml


Anti-viral, anti-fungal, bactericidal and insecticidal. Great for dry, sensitive and oily skin as well as scratches, scrapes, boils and spots. Manuka oil is the volatile oil obtained by steam distillation of the leaves and terminal branches of Leptospermum scoparium, Myrtaceae.



Leptospermum scoparium

Manuka Essential oil is similar to Tea Tree Oil but with extra properties and a gentler action. It is great to use where a pleasant rather than medicinal smell is appropriate. It is especially useful where long term treatment is required. It is good for people with dry, oily or sensitive skin. Use well diluted – Manuka is especially effective in Avocado or Jojoba for dry and sensitive skin. It contains the insectiside Leptospermone so is great to use as an insect repellent and, when diluted, to soothe insect bites and stings.

Manuka is highly bactericidal across a wide spectrum so is good to use on scratches, scrapes, boils and spots.
It is also a good mood-lifter. Why not try adding a few drops to your bath as a pick-me-up for those winter blues.
Manuka has such a wide range of properties that it is used in many modern day skincare, body oil, lotion, cream, soap and shampoo products.
