Shelf Life of Manuka Essential Oil:
Our freshly decanted Manuka essential oil will last for 1-2 years minimum from when you open your amber glass bottle if stored correctly:
Primary Storage Considerations:
Keep away from direct light (U.V. radiation)
Keep in the amber glass bottle with lid tightly closed. Only open when you need to and decant into a smaller "working" amber glass bottle if possible (and label so you know what is in it). This is to reduce oxidation.
Secondary Storage Considerations:
Keep in a refrigerator at around 4 degrees celsius.
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.
Hazards: None known.
Contraindications: None known.
