Kanuka is similar in action to Manuka, both of which have been traditionally used by New Zealand’s native Maori people for skin, respiratory and digestive ailments. Kanuka oil has a clear, fresh, slightly more floral aroma than Manuka.

Nature/Essence – Protective & Calming

Kanuka oil has antimicrobial and healing activity, making it a powerful oil for minor wounds, acne, and fungal conditions of the nails or skin.

Kanuka oil can be used as an inhalation during coughs and colds to help clear the respiratory system, support immune defences and aid recovery. It is also wonderful in a massage oil, penetrating deeply to ease stiff or sore muscles and joints.

Kanuka is known to be calming and relaxing, and can be used to aid sleep.

Kanuka, organic essential oil.

A beautiful oil, reasonably priced, for use in skin calming creams and for the treatment of burns and scalds. More effective than Aloe Vera when added to infused Kanuka oil.

a nice quality oil

Would like to see the geographical location displayed- so many chemotypes of Kānuka from different locations- this needs to be displayed (please see my research on this). I needed some oil quickly and was happy with this purchase though
