Manuka essential oil is favoured for supporting our skin. It may reduce blemishes and also promotes new skin growth for wound healing. Considered a strong anti-inflammatory when used in skin applications.
Manuka essential oil has a sweet, herbaceous and fresh aroma. Indigenous Maori’s have used manuka for scalp conditions, for relief from insect stings and for its deodorising properties. As you can see body washes and shampoos would benefit from the addition of this wonderful oil.
Manuka essential oil blends well with most floral essential oils, clove, nutmeg and pine.
