100% pure Mānuka essential oil ~ the mother of all native essential oils.

East Cape Mānuka oil is extracted from the leaves of the mānuka tree by steam distillation. Prized for its versatile healing ability, mānuka has been used by Māori for many centuries for a wide range of purposes. 

East Cape mānuka oil contains high levels of triketones. It is a group of naturally occurring compounds that have extraordinary healing abilities. Triketones have been proven to be effective in controlling MRSA, Herpes (HSV1 and HSV2), and are 20-30 times more effective at destroying gram-positive bacteria than Australian Tea Tree Oil.

Why the Mānuka oil:

  • 100% pure essential oil
  • Very versatile oil and can be used for many different purposes
  • Not tested on animals
  • Analgesic
  • Anthelmintic
  • Antibacterial
  • Anti-dandruff
  • Antihisthamine
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Antifungal
  • Antiseptic
  • Cicatrisant
  • Cytophylactic
  • Deoderant

Ingredients: 100% pure East Cape mānuka oil (leptospermum scoparium)

Size: 10ml

Directions: Apply sparingly to the affected areas as required. Can be diluted with vegetable oil.

Way to use:

  • Add a few drops of pure East Cape mānuka oil to your favourite shampoo or conditioner to help with dandruff
  • Apply (diluted with a carrier oil) to cuts, scratches and grazes to prevent infection and speed up the healing process
  • Apply (diluted with a carrier oil) to fungal infections such as coldsores and athlete's foot to kill the nasties and help it heal faster
  • Add a few drops of pure East Cape mānuka oil to your favourite skincare treatment to help with acne and blemishes
  • If you suffer from body odour, try adding a few drops to your soap or body wash to help kill the stink-causing bacteria
  • Add a few drops of pure East Cape mānuka oil to your washing liquid or powder to kill bacteria and leave your clothes smelling fresh. This is especially useful for sweaty clothes that stink!
  • To help with chafing and rashes, dilute 5-10 drops of pure East Cape mānuka oil in 10ml of a non-comedogenic carrier oil and massage into the irritated skin
  • Use it as an insect repellent - simply dilute 5-10 drops in 10ml of your favourite carrier oil and apply to your areas of exposed skin that insects are most likely to bite
  • If you do get bitten, try using East Cape mānuka oil to soothe the irritation - it's also an antihisthamine.

Caution: external use only. Do not swallow. Avoid contact with eyes and ears. Keep out of reach of pets and children. If you suspect an allergic reaction please discontinue use. 

Note: This is a pure essential oil. Whilst it is commonly applied directly to the skin, it is best to dilute with a suitable carrier oil (such as sweet almond oil or olive oil). Or add into other products such as soap, shampoo, washing liquid/powder, skincare ointments and bathing products. This allows you to get the most out of your pure mānuka oil whilst still enjoying all the benefits.

Eco criteria

Eco Product selection criteria

When we source our products, we try to find as many environmental benefits as possible. We source eco products that do not cause any unnecessary harm to our environment.
This particular product matches the following critera (click on each to see other products matching the same):

All of our eco criteria explained

Made from recycled materials or is recyclable

Recycling has many benefits like saving energy, conserving raw materials, reducing the amount of stuff that goes to landfills and it's also saving you money. 2.5 Million Tons of waste go to landfills each year (8kg per person/week) 3/4 could be saved by re-using, recycling and composting. Re-duce, Re-use, Re-cycle!

Contain no toxins or harmful ingredients

Many people suffer from allergies, asthma and other sensitivities because of products that contain toxins or otherwise harmful ingredients. Most of these products are used inside the house eg. for cleaning, as body care products, as a detergent and so on. We try to source products that are mostly natural and do not cause any harm to you or your environment.

Be compostable or biodegradable

What is the difference? Compostable materials provide the earth with nutrients once it has completely broken down. Biodegradable materials refer to the ability of breaking down and return to nature. Buying products that are compostable and/or biodegradable will help to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills.

Fairly traded or Fairtrade certified

At the beginning of most production chains are the workers and farmers (producers). Sadly they do not always get a fair share of the benefits of the trade. You as a consumer can now make a conscious decision about buying fairtrade or fairly traded products and putting this right.

Reduce the dependence on oil

Many household items are made of plastic. Because plastic doesn't react chemically with most other substances, it doesn't break down or decay. Therefore, plastic poses a significant environmental problem as it hangs around in the environment for a very long time. We stock many products that use little or no plastic in order to reduce our dependence on oil.

Cruelty free

The testing on animals for cosmetic and consumer products needs to stop. Whether you decide to buy only vegan products, or just start incorporating more cruelty-free products into your life, it's definitely worth to go animal friendly. The products we source are cruelty-free and do not harm or kill animals in their making.
