Traditional & Historical Information:
Since pre-European times the New Zealand Maori have revered Mānuka for its strength and healing abilities. It has been used to treat a range of skin problems including chronic sores, ring worm and eczema. The Maori also cite Mānuka for urinary complaints and for reducing fever. Originally, they boiled the leaves in water to inhale for colds, blocked sinuses, hay fever and asthma and rubbed the warm liquid onto stiff backs and sore joints.
