INCI: Leptospermum scoparium leaf oil
The essentail oil manuka is won by steam distillation from the sheets and branches of the South Pacific myrtle (Leptospermum scoparium). The color is pale yellow to brownishly and owns a sweetish, spicy-earthy fragance. The ethereal oil well frees itself in alcohol (ethanol), vegetable oils and other essential oils. Essential oil manuka is indissoluble in water.
Main parts with up to 50% are included carboxylic acid ester and in lower concentration sesquiterpene as for example a-and ß-cadinen, as well as limes and linalool.
The anti-allergic qualities of the essential oil manuka are used by massages and baths. It works very stabilising with general nervousness, irritant flood and restlessness.
