Manuka Essential Oil is an oil that I had not heard of the first few years of my oily journey. So when someone mentioned Manuka to me one day I looked at them a little cross-eyed wondering where they had made up an oil. They hadn’t. I just was missing out. So let’s get to know this less known oil.
Making Manuka Essential Oil
Manuka is part of the myrtle family. The exact type of tree used by Young Living is the Leptospermum scoparium in New Zealand. While the tree is found in both Australia and New Zealand, Young Living works with communities in New Zealand. To make the oil, the leaves and stems of the tree are steam distilled.
Using Manuka Essential Oil
Manuka has many similarities to Tea Tree Essential Oil in regards to its usage and benefits. It is extremely good for your skin. You can dilute the oil if you wish, but it is an oil that can be used neat (or non-diluted) unless you have extremely sensitive skin. Always test it on a small portion of your skin to see how you personally react to it.
Manuka is wonderful to add to your shampoo and conditioner to help cleanse your scalp and support healthy hair. Pop a roller top on the bottle and roll it directly on to your face as part of your skin care routine, or add it to your face wash and cleansers to reduce blemishes. Or use a couple of drops of Manuka Essential Oil on your nails to promote strength and health.
Manuka is also a powerful oil to help rid your house of scents that you aren’t particularly pleased with. Diffuse Manuka with a refreshing citrus Orange, a relaxing Lavender, or an immune boosting Exodus II to gain amazing health benefits and get your air back to smelling the way you want it! Or add it to your natural cleaners in order to better combat scents.

Manuka can be purchased with your Young Living membership or retail account. With the membership you get a lifetime membership with 24% off all retail prices which is definitely a bang for your buck.
