Manuka essential oil is similar, in action, to tea tree (both have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral actions) . . . but not as prone to cause irritation. For this reason, I like to use it as an alternative to tea tree in many skin applications; it’s especially good for reducing the appearance of blemishes due to its ability to help skin heal itself. I’m honestly not crazy about the scent of manuka. It’s ok but not something that I want to wear as perfume . . . so I mix it with other skin-helping oils that have nicer scents . . . like our high altitude lavender.
Insect bites, fungal infections of the skin, diaper rash, bedsores, mild sunburn, and itching are other skin conditions that may be helped by manuka essential oil. It’s also a great addition to homemade deodorants and in mouthwash.
Some research indicates that manuka essential oil may be more effective against bacteria and fungi than tea tree and that it holds promise against antibiotic resistant bacteria. For this reason, I find that it’s a great oil to use in rotation with tea tree. If I use tea tree for 10 days, I will switch to manuka to avoid chances of habitualization.
Other conditions that may benefit from manuka essential oil include: respiratory conditions (manuka can help disrupt mucus), sore throats, anxiety and stress.
Manuka is also a great addition to diffuser blends for relaxation before bedtime.
With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in fractionated coconut oil.
