Manuka Essential Oil
Antibacterial, antimicrobial and soothing. Manuka Essential Oil is a very powerful antibacterial which has been shown in clinical trials to be up to 20 times stronger than tea tree oil on a wide range of Gram-positive bacterium such as Staphylococcus aureus, and MRSA which is now resistant to most antibiotics. It is also equally effective as an antifungal that is particularly effective against ringworm.
As well as being more powerful than tea tree oil, Manuka Essential Oil also has a more pleasing herbaceous, honey-like aroma and is less irritating to skin for most people. Used in skin care blends it soothes rashes, spots, acne and irritated skin as well as balancing an oily complexion. One drop placed on insect bites and stings helps soothe and disinfect the area, and speeds healing.
The Maori people of New Zealand have used manuka leaves in their traditional medicine for centuries to treat a wide range of ailments including burns, dandruff, dysentery, fevers, skin conditions and rheumatism. Aromatherapists today use Manuka Essential Oil for these conditions and to keep a wide range of bacteria and fungi at bay.

Always use the shampoo and shower gel. Add my own essential oil and smells fantastic. Great for us with delicate skin.

Fast service. Have only used the product once at the moment (shampoo and conditioner), but it seems to be very good indeed. Plenty of ingredient information, which is just what I wanted. Would certainly recommend.

I ordered the 48 compartment aromatherapy oil storage box, plus assorted empty bottles. It was very easy to see the merchandise, choose my products and pay. The order arrived within 2 days, expertly packaged. The box looks expensive and elegant and holds my oils perfectly. I would not hesitate to recommend this company.
