Native to New Zealand and steam distilled from the manuka—or Leptospermum scoparium—tree, Manuka essential oil is a skin care pro. In fact, it’s right up there with Tea Tree oil when it comes to skin-loving superstars. But there’s more to those drops of Manuka than mad skin-cleansing skills.
Bothersome blemishes? Manuka’s got a drop for that. Itchy scalp? Manuka’s a master moisturizer. Fatigued feet? Meet Manuka, your new massage therapist. It could be coincidence that Manuka and multitasker both start with the letter M, but we think not.
