Our organically crafted Manuka Hydrosol is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of the flowering Leptospermum scoparium shrub, commonly known as New Zealand Tea Tree. This exquisite hydrosol has a sweet, earthy, herbaceous, warm, radiant aroma.

There are three phenotypes of Manuka originating in New Zealand and only one of these is rich in the highly sought-after triketones. In fact, Manuka's claim to fame lies in its high triketone content which is specific to the East Cape of New Zealand where the trees ability to cope with harsh environmental conditions is legendary. Triketones are key antagonists to gram-positive bacteria (more so than Tea Tree) and are present in elevated levels only in the Manuka found in the East Cape's unique ecosystem. The creative strategies used by aromatic plants such as Manuka to survive and thrive are complex, innovative and adaptable. These life-affirming qualities are advantageous for everyone - aromatically, physically and metaphorically - making Manuka a superb ally for health and well-being.


Manuka Hydrosol is truly special and contains a higher level of ketones that are highly effective for purifying and eliminating unwanted microbial activity. Manuka Hydrosol helps with managing pain and inflammation, making it an excellent choice for treating a myriad of skin issues. It is also wonderfully supportive for the respiratory system in case of cold or flu, especially when experiencing congestion. Manuka Hydrolat is a lovely choice for helping to boost the immune system and may even help the body maintain normal reactions to allergens. It is hydrating and energizing, making it useful as a toner for all skin types, as well.

Emotionally and energetically, Manuka Hydrosol is uplifting and invigorating and can help ease worry and improve negative thinking. Thanks to its calming effects, it may also help with sleep support.
