How We Make Premium Mānuka Oil
Step 1. Mānuka Harvesting and Mulching
The Mānuka trees are hand and mechanically harvested from sustainable natural wild crops in remote locations of the East Cape of New Zealand.
The leaves and twigs of the Mānuka are then mulched before being added to stainless steel cooking pots.
Step 2. Steam Distillation Process
Inside the cooking pots the steam distillation process happens. This is where the Mānuka Essential oil is removed from the leaf and then carried to the condenser.
In the condenser the steam is condensed to a liquid state.
Step 3. Oil Separation & Filtration
The Mānuka Essential oil is then collected and separated from the water in separators.
Once separated the oil is then filtered before bottling and dispatching to our customers.
