The mother of all native essential oils, East Cape mānuka oil has astonishing abilities when it comes to healing, rejuvinating and remedying infections.
Mānuka essential oil is made by distilling leaves and twigs from the mānuka tree (leptospermum scoparium). Each leaf contains a range of powerful healing oils, which are stored in the oil sacs on the underside of the leaves.
East Cape mānuka oil contains particularly high levels of triketones - a group of naturally occurring compounds that have extraordinary healing abilities. Triketones have been proven to be effective in controlling MRSA, Herpes (HSV1 and HSV2), and 20-30 times more effective at destroying gram-positive bacteria than Australian Tea Tree Oil.
Note: this is a pure essential oil. Whilst it is commonly applied directly to the skin, it is best to dilute with a suitable carrier oil (such as sweet almond oil or olive oil), or add into other products such as soap, shampoo, washing liquid/powder, skincare ointments and bathing products. This allows you to get the most out of your pure mānuka oil whilst still enjoying all the benefits.
