Manuka oil has an earthy, fresh, slightly spicy and sweet scent. It is considered the ‘tea tree’ of New Zealand because it has similar antibacterial and antifungal properties. It has a long history of use by the indigenous population in New Zealand; the Maori used it for wounds, cuts, sores and skin diseases. It has an analgesic property, making it helpful to numb pain from insect bites and stings. It also supports the appearance of healthy looking skin and reduces the appearance of blemishes. It’s a great oil to diffuse if you have a sensitive nervous system or are prone to stress and anxiety as it’s very balancing.
