I want to use the 100% Pure East Cape Manuka Oil directly on my skin, should I do a patch test?

Yes, we always recommend that you dab a few drops of diluted manuka oil onto a patch of skin on your forearm. If, after 24 hours, you have had no reaction, you can continue to use the product topically. If, however, in the unlikely event that you have an irritation, please discontinue use.

How can I use the 100% Pure East Cape Manuka Oil 20ml?

Here are just a few options on how you can use our 20ml of 100% Pure East Cape Manuka Oil:

💛 For bathing, apply 10 - 15 drops to your bath once the bath is running.

💛 For on-going skin issues such as acne, use a cotton bud to apply undiluted to spots morning and night.

💛 For topical use, mix with a carrier oil. May be diluted one part manuka oil to ten parts carrier oil on sensitive skin or sensitive skin areas. Alternatively, you can use one of our scientifically formulated skin oils.

💛 Add to your moisturiser, shampoo or conditioner to benefit from the plant-powered goodness of East Cape manuka oil.

💛 For a natural home cleaning spray, dilute the oil in a spray bottle with water.

💛 Diffuse East Cape manuka oil by adding three to four to your diffuser or place eight to ten drops into a bowl of boiling water and inhale the vapours.

I have spent thousands of dollars on acne products over the years but nothing has worked, how can I be sure your products will work?

The East Cape manuka oil used in our skincare range is known to be 20-30x stronger than tea tree oil against Gram-positive bacteria. This type of bacteria is the most common skin bacteria.

Due to this, our customers have seen remarkable results from using our products and have ditched tea tree oil for our plant-powered acne range.

We also offer a money back guarantee so if you haven’t seen the results you were looking for then we’ll refund you, no questions asked.

What is the difference between your Acne Healing Oil and the 03 Skin Oil for Blemishes and Breakouts?

The 03 Skin Oil or Blemishes and Breakouts is of a higher concentration. That is, this oil has 100% of the chemical compound called ß-triketone. It is stronger in concentration and packed full of antimicrobial, antifungal,and antimicrobial properties. Additionally, the 03 Skin Oil for Blemishes and Breakouts has the smell taken out of the oil. The blend is more potent and therefore its synergistic effect with the turmeric oil and frankincense oil is stronger.

The Acne Healing Oil contains the non-concentrated Manuka Oil. Therefore it is not as strong but still has all the benefits.

The choice is yours, in terms of which one you prefer.
