100% Pure East Cape Kānuka Oil


Sweet and soothing. Reminiscent of happy memories

Kānuka essential oil is made by distilling leaves and twigs from the kānuka tree (kunzea ericoides). Each leaf contains a range of potent healing oils, which are stored in the oil sacs on the underside of the leaves. One of the main compounds found in kānuka oil is alpha-pinene, which is known to be highly antimicrobial, great for improving airflow to the lungs, and aiding memory.

Kānuka oil is a lighter oil than mānuka oil, which the skin tends to absorb more rapidly. Kānuka oil has a sweet, herbaceous and earthy scent.
