Although Manuka essential oil is relatively new to aromatherapy, the plant has been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments by the Maoris of New Zealand. It is sometimes referred to as the "New Zealand Tea Tree" due to the remarkable similarities in therapeutic actions. Botanically, the Manuka is a small evergreen shrub that grows between 3 to 6 feet high. It has arching branches with small and narrow aromatic leaves. Depending on the variety, the flowers can be white, pink or red and bloom in small clusters around the leaves twice a year. Manuka essential oil is extracted from the leaves by steam distillation, and the quality of which is dependent on the altitude at which the plant is cultivated. Higher altitudes produce far better essential oils than that from lower altitudes.

Manuka essential oil has properties very similar to those associate with Tea Tree. It can be used as an external application for chicken pox, cold sores, insect bites and warts. Other therapeutic properties found in Manuka are antibacterial, antifungal, anti-acne, anti-inflammatory, antihistamine and antiallergenic.

Manuka essential oil is a great treatment for skin afflictions. It can be used on cuts, boils and wounds to speed up the healing process. It can also be used in the treatment of acne and other oily skin conditions. Manuka is best used diluted, as it does tend to have a drying effect, especially when used over a long period of time.

The scent of Manuka essential oil is warm and spicy, with fresh, herbal top notes and sweet, gentle undertones.

Manuka has a very calming scent that is best for sensitive people. The refreshing fragrance can help soothe and balance the nervous system. Manuka is also an excellent aid for meditation.

The oil works great and was delivered exactly as described. I use it for my acnes and fungal infections. The result is amazing. It cleared out my acne problems in a month and cured the fungal infection under my toenails in a few applications. I was absolutely shocked to get these results. I have tried various anti-acne products but none of them really work until I decided to give this oil a try. I am now being acne free and my toenails are back to normal. This is the oil that everyone should keep a bottle around for various purposes.
