    Organic manuka essential oil 5ml

    1 reviews

    A small shrub from New Zealand, in the same family as the Eucalyptus and Melaleuca. It thrives in light conditions, likes rich soils and is resistant to lack of water. In spring, it has pretty white or pale pink flowers, which are pleasantly scented. Also known as the New Zealand Tea Tree, its leaves have been used by the Maoris for centuries. The distillation of the leafy branches produces an essential oil with a delicate, floral scent.
