Manuka Essential is similar to Tea Tree Oil but with extra properties and a gentler action.
Manuka 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 Avacado 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.
