Manuka Essential Oil Traditional Health Benefits
Native to New Zealand, the locals use Manuka honey and essential oil for cuts and wound healing, especially chronic wounds and ulcers. It is also brought in to help with things like insect bites, athlete’s foot and other fungal infections, including ringworm.
It is often used as an alternative to Tea Tree Essential Oil which is native to neighbouring Australia. Tea Tree is recognised as a great antifungal, but, like Manuka Essential Oil, it is also used for cold sores, which are viral in origin. Both aromatherapy oils are also used for acne, which is hormonal and bacterial in expression, and usually the result of excessive stress of one kind or another.
Manuka Essential Oil is used in steam inhalations for colds and flu, which again, are viral in origin.
Manuka is also thought to help stabilise and balance our nervous system, thereby helping to restore emotional equilibrium. It is seen as fundamentally protective, and therefore a great preventative.
This is why it is one of the all important essential oils in the immune boosting Thieves Comprehensive Essential Oil formula.
