Product Detail

Product Description

Manuka Oil - Kanuka Oil Blend 10ml/0.34fl.oz. The Coromandel Mountains Tea Tree Oil Company is located in the Coromandel Peninsula, overlooking Mercury Bay, on the New Zealand North Island. This 360-acre farm has been certified by BioGro NZ. This product combines essential oils extracted from Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium) and Kanuka (Kunzea ericoides) treest. Although labeled "tea tree oil" this product should not be confused with Australian tea tree oil, which is extracted from Melaleuca alternifolia and has considerably higher levels of contaminants. To make this oil, manuka and kanuka leaves from trees grown in the wild are carefully pruned by hand, allowing for a 2-4 year gap to allow the plant to recover. Stems are carefully avoided and no machines are used during the process. This is important because oils from stems and mechanic lubricants could contaminate the resulting oil, as it happens often with Australian Tea Tree oil. This oil is then extracted using low-temperature steam distillation, which preserves the integrity of all components. It takes on average one ton of pruned leaf to produce one liter of oil. In essence, the process is the same as what the Maori were using when Captain Cook anchored in Mercury Bay in 1769.
