Manuka is a magnificent feast of perfumed-pollen for Aussie honeybees and it is from this hive of activity that Manuka Honey is made. Bees are not the only ones who love this plant’s replenishing powers: Kakariki parakeets are also big fans - these birds chew the leaves into a paste, and apply the paste to their feathers!
When it is good enough for the birds and bees, beauteous benefits for humans abounds!
Manuka Essential Oil is blessed with the restorative essence of the Manuka shrub, which is one of the only plant species to completely regenerate itself after being cut down. You, too, can bounce back with this influential essential, which is wild-crafted in its native Australia. Steam distilled for purity, it is known to calm a concerned mind while increasing sensual desire. The aroma of this enchanting elixir is like golden honey mixed with fir needles.
“…for so work the honeybees, creatures that by a rule in nature teach the act of order to a peopled kingdom.”
~ William Shakespeare
Manuka essential oil has been investigated with regard to its properties and applications… The essential oil is chemically complex, and contains around 15% leptospermone, a ketone, along with sesquiterpenes and their oxygenated derivatives.”
