Discover the Power of Pure New Zealand Manuka Oil

Origins & History of Manuka Essential Oil

Manuka oil, derived from the leaves and small branches of the Manuka tree (Leptospermum scoparium), is an essential part of New Zealand's rich history and culture. The indigenous Māori people have long celebrated its health and wellness benefits, utilizing it long before it became a cornerstone in Western aromatherapy. According to local folklore, Captain James Cook himself used Manuka leaves in a tea to prevent scurvy among his crew during his voyages.

The essential oils in Manuka leaves were identified in the 1970s, leading to commercial production from the 1980s onwards. Today, Manuka oil is recognized globally for its potential benefits, with ongoing research illuminating new uses and advantages.
