Healing Body, Mind, and Spirit with Pure Essential Oils
Blog Banner

Leptospermum scoparium, wildcrafted, steam-distilled leaves, New Zealand.


This is a powerful antibacterial oil, gentler than the melaleucas (ie, Tea Tree, etc.). Similar in action to Tea Tree, but much less medicinal in aroma, this healing oil is honey scented. Use as you would Tea Tree, for anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral benefits.

It is proven effective against both strep and staph infections. Testing at the University of Heidelberg show that Manuka is more effective than Tea Tree essential oil when dealing with gram positive bacteria. Both Tea Tree Oil and Manuka Oil also demonstrated a very good antimicrobial efficacy against various antibiotic-resistant staphylococcus species.

Experimental use has shown it helpful in dealing with the symptoms of chronic fatigue. I find it milder and less irritating than Tea Tree in skin care products. This has become, in our house, one of the “must have” oils.

This Manuka Oil is harvested and distilled on the East coast of New Zealand, reputed to produce the best/most effective essential oil.
