Manuka (leptospermum scoparium)

Leptospermum scoparium, commonly called mānuka, manuka, manuka myrtle, New Zealand tea-tree, broom tea-tree, or just tea tree, is a species of flowering plant in the myrtle family Myrtaceae, native to Australia and New Zealand. Native tea tree manuka is highly prized by beekeepers as well as gardeners. Frost hardy evergreen shrub with dainty white flowers and slender foliage typical of leptospermums.

In recent years this Leptospermum has gain notoriety as much for the famous Manuka honey that originates from this plant as it has for its spectacular showy flowers. Due to its amazing antibacterial properties, Manuka honey is worth 10 – 20 times the value of standard West Australian honey. Bio-active Leptospermum species are ideal for growing in a plantation development and plans to develop a large Manuka honey industry in Western Australia are under way to take advantage of the increasing demand for high quality healing natural healing products.

The activity of manuka honey has been tested against a diverse range of microbes, particularly those that cause wound infections, and it inhibits problematic bacterial pathogens, including superbugs that are resistant to multiple antibiotics.

Topical application of Manuka essential oil may be even more beneficial for use on sensitive skin, fungal infections, ringworm, bedsores, athlete’s foot, itching, acne, ulcers, wounds, scarring & skin that is slow to heal. Its analgesic qualities make it a great for muscular aches & pains.
