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!
Manuka Essential Oil
Sweet, calming, herbaceous aroma
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.
Add 2-4 drops of Manuka to your diffuser to help restore emotional balance.
Dilute in your preferred carrier at a 2-5% ratio to help soothe red, swollen skin. You can add a few drops of Manuka Oil to an Epsom Salt Footbath - add it to the Epsom Salts first and then dissolve in the water. If you're using it in a bathtub, we recommend that you use a dispersing agent to blend with the oil, to ensure it is properly diluted and will not cause skin irritation. Add it to your body wash or shampoo to help with dry itchy skin or scalp.

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.
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.
