Legend: Manuka is one of three tea trees indigenous to both Australia and New Zealand. Infusions and poultices were made from the leaves and inner bark and the seed capsules and sap were chewed. Early European migrants, in both countries, produced a tea from Manuka leaves for refreshment and health.
Heal your body: The properties are antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-acne, anti-inflammatory, antihistamine, and anti-allergenic properties. Manuka is also extremely good for bringing your adreanals back into balance. It has practical applications on chicken pox, cold sores, insect bites and warts.

Directions: Suspended in a base of pure Jojoba oil, this Manuka pure essential oil blend can be applied neat to the skin or used in massage. For other ways to use essential oils please visit our Methods of use section. Please note: that Essential Oils blended with Jojoba do not burn as well in candle vaporisers (unless they are very well heated). The water in the candle vaporiser needs to be quite hot and the newer open style burners just don’t heat the water/oil up enough, so if you are purchasing a new vaporiser make sure you get an enclosed one.
We recommend electric diffuser that uses ultrasonic waves to diffuse the water with essential oils into tiny molecules, producing an elegant mist, releasing the essential oils in their 100% purest form and enhancing the effect of aromatherapy.
Warnings: Not for internal use. Avoid contact with eyes. Not to be used neat on the body. Always dilute. Adults Only. Keep out of reach of children. If symptoms persist consult your healthcare practitioner. Not recommended for sensitive skin. Always use diluted in baths. Use in moderation.
