Manuka Oil is a beautiful and very impressive skincare oil. It is antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial, which makes it excellent for treating blemishes and acne when used with your favorite carrier oil. Its anti-fungal properties also make it great for treating an itchy scalp or dandruff. Manuka can sometimes be overlooked due to the popularity of tea tree oil, which is another amazing oil for its abilities to combat bacteria, but in some instances Manuka can be reportedly more effective than tea tree. Definitely worth giving this skincare miracle a shot! It’s also very nice in the diffuser with florals, pines, and citrus.
While this is not the same thing as Manuka honey, Manuka oil is extracted and distilled from the leaves of the Manuka tree while Manuka honey is made from bees pollinating the Manuka bush of the same species. The thing that makes Manuka Honey so special is its antimicrobial properties, which it shares with Manuka Oil, except Manuka oil is 100 times more antimicrobial than it’s honey counterpart.
