Discover the labour of love that transforms the native Manuka tree into the special essential oil used in ManukaRx.
While commonly found growing wild throughout New Zealand, the Manuka trees that provide the essential oil found in ManukaRx is specifically sourced from the East Cape of New Zealand. Manuka oil from the East Cape has qualities that are unique to the region; the essential oil boasts higher proportions of triketones, which enhances the oils antimicrobial and antibacterial properties and gives the oil its therapeutic abilities.
With a view towards sustainability, the Manuka tree utilized for ManukaRx is grown from seed in East Cape nurseries, where they are nurtured into seedlings before being planted into plantations. The mature Manuka trees are harvested once a year, after which the leaves are steam distilled and the Manuka essential oil is carefully extracted.
There are three common ways of extracting essential oil from plant matter -
Great care is taken in the harvesting and extraction of Manuka oil. It seems only fair - we use Manuka oil to soothe, moisturise and support our body’s natural processes, so we must treat both the land and plant with respect. ManukaRx natural ointment takes the inherent power of Manuka oil and makes it easily accessible - no harvesting, distilling or extracting required.
So cool that you guys and women are doing this up the East Cape. Kia ora.
