Most people know about the marvelous
properties of the Australian Tea Tree Oil. Many are not aware that New Zealand
has its own native Tea Tree, the ‘Manuka Tree’ which also has very specific healing
properties. They both belong to the same family Myrtaceae, and the
essential oils of the family are mostly from eucalyptus and melaleuca trees. The antibacterial effectiveness of Manuka oil is approximately
30 times more potent than the Australian Tea Tree.

abundant shrub or small tree. It is a bushy plant with small spiky leaves that
bears white or pink flowers. It is fast growing and has leaves rich in oil.  The essential oil is found in little
pockets inside the leaves, which are broken to release the aroma. The
leaves are wild harvested from naturally regenerating stands of Manuka and the
oil is then slowly extracted through steam distillation.
Studies have shown that Manuka Oil may help in the treatment
of a broad spectrum of health conditions. It has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal,
anti-viral, anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties. The main components of this oil are caryophyllene,
geraniol, pinene, humulene, linalol and leptospermone.
