- Open text field 1: This New Zealand Manuka essential oil has a particularly strong, antibacterial effect and can help with eczema, psoriasis and inflammation of the skin.
Manuka oil comes from New Zealand and has a broad spectrum of activity, especially against acne-promoting bacteria. Due to the extremely low Cineolgehaltes (an active ingredient in essential oils that can irritate the skin), it is particularly well tolerated and mild.
A New Zealand proverb says: He iti, he iti manuka "-" Do not make fun of a little man - he can be as strong as Manuka ".
The special tea tree oil: Manukaöl
Manuka oil is significantly different from all other tea tree oils. It contains on the one hand more different active ingredients in higher concentration. On the other hand, these are combined in a unique combination, so that they complement each other in their effect. Manuka oil is considered the "real" tea tree oil because it surpasses all other tea tree oils in all medical and cosmetic applications.
The smell of manuka oil:
The manuka tree protects itself with its distinctive smell of mushrooms, parasites, germs and bacteria. The molecules of the Manukaöles are very small and therefore get very quickly after application or inhalation into the bloodstream and into the brain, where they influence our mental health through certain stimuli. In addition, oils, like hormones, act as messengers and therefore influence the control of our organs. They have inhibitory, calming or stimulating properties.
Manuka oil is made up of many different ingredients . The totality of all substances in their specific combination make the special of manuka oil. The most important active ingredients are:
- Sesquiterpenes (2/3 in Manuka oil): they have a controlling effect on the secreted histamine in the body, which are responsible for itching and inflammatory reactions, especially in the context of allergies. In addition, sesquiterpenes accelerate the healing of wounds and regenerate the skin and mucous membranes. Applied externally, they soothe irritated, irritated skin.
- Triketones (included at 1/4): These substances have been detected only in Manuka and have an extraordinary effect on infections and fungal diseases. They rebuild skin and mucous membranes, promote wound healing and stimulate the central nervous system and brain activity and thus the ability to concentrate.
- Sesquiterpenols (concentration of about 5%): have a regulating effect on the excitatory and damping transmitter substances, have a positive effect on the pituitary gland and thus ensure a stable hormone balance, which in turn is a prerequisite for an intact immune system.
- Monoterpenes (about 3%): stimulate the body to produce anti-inflammatory substances.
- Cineole: It is found in almost all essential oils and can lead to skin irritation if it is overdosed. Manuka contains only a very small proportion of cineole (only 0.17%), while other tea tree oils contain more than 2-7%. Therefore, Manuka is also much better tolerated than other tea tree oils.
- Overall, it has been proven in laboratory tests that manuka oil is up to 40 times more effective against some microorganisms than the Australian tea tree oil.
