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.

We are pleased to offer you an exceptional organic quality manuka essential oil, brought back from New Zealand in our luggage after meeting the producer during a trip. This powerful antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agent is 20 times more effective than tea tree on certain bacteria and germs and is a real alternative to its Australian counterpart.

A natural solution for fighting acne and purifying problem skin, manuka essential oil has a very interesting composition that combines antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and healing properties. It is traditionally used to soothe many skin problems such as eczema, shingles, impetigo, mycosis, abscesses, sunburn and insect bites. Its delicate, floral and aromatic scent will be very pleasant in atmospheric diffusion to purify the air, especially during winter epidemics. Its expectorant properties facilitate respiratory comfort.
