Aromatic Scent: Manuka essential oil has a woodsy, cedar like smell that is much warmer than Tea tree.

History: Manuka has long been valued for its healing properties by the Maori people - the indigenous people of 'Aotearoa' (New Zealand ) . Infusions and poultices were made from the leaves and inner bark and the seed capsules and sap were chewed. Early European migrants produced a tea from Manuka leaves for refreshment and health. The Manuka tree also produces a nectar that the bees turn into a rich amber honey. This is also known for its curative properties.
Never use pure oils on the skin without diluting, never use internally, keep away from children and eyes, always check if there are any medical issues which could cause a problem. Seek help if you have any doubts.
