- Short description: This essential manuka oil from New Zealand has a particularly powerful antibacterial effect and can be helpful for eczema, psoriasis and inflammation of the skin.
Manuka oil comes from New Zealand and has a broad spectrum of activity, especially against acne-promoting bacteria. Due to the extremely low cineole content (an active ingredient in essential oils that can irritate the skin), it is particularly well tolerated and mild.
A New Zealand proverb says: He iti, he iti manuka "-" Don't make fun of a little man - he can be as strong as Manuka ".
The special tea tree oil: manuka oil
Manuka oil is clearly different from all other tea tree oils. On the one hand, it contains more different active ingredients in higher concentrations. On the other hand, these are put together in a unique combination so that they complement each other in their effect. Manuka oil is considered the "real" tea tree oil because it surpasses all other tea tree oils in all medical and cosmetic applications.
The smell of manuka oil:
With its distinctive smell, the manuka tree protects itself from fungi, parasites, germs and bacteria. The molecules of manuka oil are very small and therefore get very quickly into the bloodstream and brain after being applied or inhaled, where they influence our mental well-being through certain stimuli. Like hormones, oils also act like messenger substances and therefore influence the control of our organs. They have inhibiting, calming or stimulating properties.
Manuka oil consists of many different ingredients . The totality of all substances in their specific combination make manuka oil so special. The most important active ingredients are:
- Sesquiterpenes (2/3 in manuka oil): they control the released histamines in the body, which are responsible for itching and inflammatory reactions, especially in connection with allergies. In addition, sesquiterpenes accelerate the healing of wounds and regenerate the skin and mucous membranes. Applied externally, they soothe irritated, irritated skin.
- Triketones (contained 1/4): these substances have so far only been found in Manuka and have an extraordinary effect on infections and fungal diseases. They rebuild skin and mucous membranes, promote wound healing and stimulate the central nervous system and brain activity and thus the ability to concentrate.
- Sesquiterpenols (concentration of approx. 5%): have a regulating effect on the stimulating and dampening transmitter substances, have a positive effect on the pituitary gland and thus ensure a stable hormone balance, which in turn is a prerequisite for an intact immune system.
- Monoterpenes (approx. 3%): stimulate the body to produce anti-inflammatory substances.
- Cineole: occurs in almost all essential oils and can lead to skin irritation if overdosed. Manuka only contains a very small proportion of cineole (only 0.17%), while other tea tree oils contain a proportion of over 2 - 7%. Therefore, Manuka is much better tolerated than other tea tree oils.
- Overall, laboratory tests have shown that manuka oil is up to 40 times more effective than Australian tea tree oil against some microorganisms.
From leaf to oil - some particularities
- The manuka tree belongs to the myrtle family
- The oil can be obtained from leaves, flowers and the bark; all plants are very tough, robust, and grow even under very difficult conditions
- Manuka oil is obtained from natural growth; 30,000 - 40,000 plants can grow on one hectare without affecting each other
- For 8-10 liters of manuka oil you need about a ton of foliage; this corresponds roughly to the daily cutting machine of a worker
- Cutting the leaves does not damage the growth of the trees, it rather promotes it
- The foliage waste after distillation is used again for fertilization and for weed control in fields
- The oil is extracted using a distillation process (with hot water steam)
- Manuka oil also penetrates the deeper layers of the skin and thus attacks the evil at the root
- Pathogens do not become resistant to the oil even after prolonged use
Application tips , as described by alternative practitioner Andreas Ende in his book:
Steam inhalation : put hot water with about 3 drops of manuka oil in a bowl or 1-3 drops in the aroma lamp with water: this purifies the air and supports concentration;
A full bath with approx. 8-10 drops of manuka oil and some cream or honey (serve as an emulsifier, so that the oil is better distributed in the water) - accompanying care for skin problems and colds.
A foot bath to care for sweaty feet: bathe your feet in warm water with approx. 5 drops of manuka oil for approx. 10 minutes
Fragrance lamp : water with approx. 2 - 5 drops of manuka oil - can be used for concentration problems and cleans the room air.
Massage : Mix a body oil or a nourishing base oil with almond or ring flower oil (50 ml) with approx. 5 - 10 drops of manuka oil and massage the affected areas 1 - 2 times a day.
Ingredients: 100% Leptospermum scoparium
Please note: due to European legislation, the labels of all essential oils can only read “For room scenting”. Our manuka oil is still of the same high quality and just as versatile as it has ever been.
