If Mother Earth had a signature scent, it would probably smell like manuka – seasoned, and filled with seasons. Manuka oil has an earthy, fresh, slightly spicy and sweet scent. It’s considered the ‘tea tree’ of New Zealand because it has similar antibacterial and antifungal properties, yet it’s more gentle on the skin. It’s a great oil to diffuse if you have a sensitive nervous system or are prone to anxiety as it can be balancing.
Use in the morning to open your breath, in the evening to treat skin blemishes, and throughout the day to purify your home.
- Diffuse manuka oil on its own, or blend it with a citrus oil to help refresh your space.
- It can be used the same way that tea tree oil is used to clear up blemishes. Add a drop to your facial moisturiser and dab a little on trouble areas.
- Purify the surfaces in your home and reduce germs by adding manuka oil to your DIY cleaning products.
- Dab a drop on insect bites and stings; manuka’s analgesic properties will help to relieve the pain.
- Make a joint care gel with a blend of manuka essential oil in aloe vera. Massage tender, stiff joints as needed. A 3% dilution rate is recommended for this blend. Find our full dilution guidelines here.
- Add 2 drops to your shampoo in the palm of your hand and massage it into your wet scalp for 5 minutes to help relieve itching and dandruff.
- Open your breath and ease a tight chest during cold season! Make an inhaler with manuka oil and keep it with you. Check out our article on how to make your own eco-friendly inhaler using your old essential oil bottles here.
- Substitute manuka for tea tree in your blends when you are looking for the same skin healing, or home cleaning benefits, but want an earthier aroma or are blending for sensitive skin.
Hand-poured in Singapore.
Our organically-crafted Manuka Essential Oil (sometimes known as New Zealand tea tree) is steam-distilled from the leaves and twigs of flower shrubs in New Zealand. This distillery was started in partnership with a local Maori charitable trust and an industrial engineer. It was founded with the desire to build an enterprise of real social value by generating much needed employment for the local people.
The land from which the manuka bush is sourced is predominantly Maori tribal lands, which have not been sprayed with pesticides, herbicides, or any other chemicals, EVER. Their harvesting process protects the sustainability of the manuka bush by ensuring a low environmental impact.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this oil. I love the honey, but didn't know much else. Its really relaxing when diffused around the home and my husband even enjoys the smell.
