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.

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.
