The main active constituents of Pure Manuka Oil are the Trichetones, Flavesone, Leptospermone, Isoleptospermone, and the highest levels of these are only found in plants (Leptospermum Scoparium) growing naturally on New Zealand's remote "East Cape".
Laboratory tests have indicated that it is very effective as a treatment against some antibiotic-resistant organisms and, Manuka Oil having a very high antibacterial and antifungal activity, has been found to be particularly effective against bacteria such as Staphylococcus and Streptococcus, and Pathogenic Fungi.
In addition to external use, Manuka Oil is used in aromatherapy, as a household aid and in perfumery.
External: - 2-4 drops of Pure Manuka Oil in the bath or placed directly on affected area.
