Sweet, light, herbaceous aroma

Never heard of Manuka essential oil? You are not alone. Although it's been popular among the Maori people for centuries, this calming essential oil has only been discovered recently and is basically a new entry in the world of aromatherapy.

Don't underestimate its healing properties though. Manuka boasts of antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergenic, antiseptic, antimicrobial, antihistamine, cicatrizant, cytophylactic, and relaxant properties.

Although coming from the same tea tree family, Manuka is said to be up to 10x more effective against fungi. It also has a more fragrant scent which you will find in many personal care products such as soaps, creams, lotions, body scrubs, and more!

Its popularity in beauty products can be attributed not only to its refreshing scent but also to its natural skin healing properties. Use Manuka essential oil as a natural remedy for acne, sunburn, dandruff, allergies, insect bites, rashes, eczema, body odour, athlete's foot, toenail infection, and so much more!

Blends Well With:

Basil Linalool, Bergamot, Chamomile Roman, Clary Sage, Cypress, Eucalyptus, Geranium Burbon, Grapefruit Pink, Lavender, Lemon, Marjoram, Patchouli, Peppermint Western US, Petitgrain, Rosemary 1,8-Cineole, Sage Dalmation, Sandalwood Australian, Tea Tree, and Thyme Linalool.

Manuka Essential Oil

Description

Based in Twin Falls, Idaho, Plant Therapy was established in 2011 and is a leading supplier of organic essential oils, carrier oils, pre-diluted roll-ons, and more. All of their oils are 100% pure and free from any additives, adulterants or dilutions. 

How to use Essential Oils

Diffuse

Add 2-4 drops of essential oil to your diffuser after having added water to the fill line. Some oils may require 4-8 drops to be added.

Massage

Essential oils should always be diluted before applying to the skin. Blend essential oil with coconut oil, almond oil or any other suitable carrier oil for massage.

Inhalation

Essential oils suitable for inhalation should be diluted by adding 1-2 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head and the bowl of water. With your eyes closed, inhale the scent for up to 5 minutes at a time.

Other uses

You can add 3-5 drops of essential oil to a full bath of water, or onto a face washer placed in the bottom of your shower.

Rollerbottles are handy for ‘on the go’ applications – simply fill a rollerbottle with your preferred carrier oil and add some drops of your essential oil. You can also fit a rollerball top to an essential oil bottle rather than using a separate bottle – make sure to dilute your oil however. If that sounds like too much work, you can simply purchase ready made rollerbottles.

Essential oils are great additions to bases to make your own personal care items such as soaps, face creams or shampoos. You can also use essential oils to help cut down on chemicals in your cleaning supplies. Make sure to check out our blog articles for more ideas!

Safety Cautions

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:

  • Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.

  • Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.

  • Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
