Manuka is one of the youngest entries in the book of aromatherapy, as its uses in aromatherapy were discovered quite recently, however to the indigenous people of New Zealand – the Maori people, manuka oil has been used for generations. However, its medicinal uses have been known for a long time among the original inhabitants of New Zealand, the country to which this tree is native.
The scientific name of Manuka is Leptospermum Scoparium and its essential oil is sometimes priced higher that the legendary and respected Australian Tea Tree oil, due to its impressive variety of medicinal applications. Its essential oil is derived from the leaves of Manuka through steam distillation. The main components of this oil are caryophyllene, geraniol, pinene, humulene, linalol and leptospermone.
Amazing Health Benefits Of Manuka Oil
Bite and Sting Antidote: In case of an insect bite or a venomous sting, quickly apply this oil to the affected spot and you will find that it will reduce pain and swelling in the spot and the situation will not get any worse.
Antibacterial: This oil inhibits bacterial growth in the body, such as those giving rise to bacterial infections in the colon, urinary system, respiratory tracts and other vulnerable areas, while also helping to curb the bacterial attacks if they don’t prevent the actual growth.
Anti-fungal: It is equally effective in eliminating fungal infections just as it is in case of bacterial infections. A very common fungal infection is running ears. A drop or two there and you will see the condition heal quickly, without spending exorbitant amounts of money.
Anti-inflammatory: The Essential Oil of Manuka is anti-inflammatory in nature. It can efficiently handle inflammation of nearly any type; be it of nasal or respiratory tracts resulting from common colds or if it is of the digestive system caused by overeating of spicy food or even if it is of the circulatory system caused by any toxin (venom, narcotics etc.) getting into the blood stream. This essential oil heals inflammation for any other reason as well, including fevers and infections.
Anti-histaminic: Histamine aggravates coughs and gives bad and exhausting coughs. People often try very strange combinations of medicines to control histamine. However, this oil quickly and easily reduces the production of histamine and thereby gives relief from these continuous coughs in a safe way.
Anti-allergenic: Allergic reactions are nothing but hyper reactions of the body towards certain foreign elements, including pollens, dust, pets, and many others. Manuka oil calms down or sedates these hyper reactions, thereby giving relief from allergy issues.
Anti-dandruff: Aren’t you tired of using those costly anti-dandruff shampoos and oils, yet it still comes back? Dandruff is caused by a lack of moisture and oil in the scalp, degeneration of the scalp skin, and infections. Manuka oil can help you with all three of these causes. It will maintain the moisture and oil balance in the scalp, it will stop degeneration of the scalp skin, and will also fight any kind of infection on the scalp. You can access these benefits by mixing it with the bathing water or massaged on the head when blended with some other oil.
Cicatrisant: This oil helps the scars and after-marks on the skin fade away by promoting new cell growth in the affected parts of the body and protecting the wounds from developing any infections.
Cytophylactic: Manuka oil promotes new cell growth and thereby promotes overall growth and the healing of wounds. It can be given to patients that have suffered heavy wounds after an accident or surgery.
Relaxant: Manuka oil gives a relaxed feeling by fighting depression, anxiety, anger, stress, nervous afflictions, and disturbances. This is also good for hypertensive people whose blood pressure shoots up at the slightest anxiety or tension, thereby helping to protect the heart.
