Based overlooking Whitianga in the beautiful Coromandel mountains of New Zealand ‘manuka new zealand’ produces a range of premium quality essential oils, hydrosol and bee products
Ti-Tree is the common name for Leptospermum scoparium and Kunzia ericoides also known as Manuka and Kanuka.
The therapeutic properties of the Manuka Ti-Tree plant were identified by the Maori people centuries ago and only now in the past two decades’ modern science has shown that their uses were legitimate and that the active ingredients in the Manuka oil contain a complex mixture of some 120 natural compounds.
Kanuka oil possesses an entirely different chemistry mainly of monoterpenes which provide decongestant, antiseptic and warming properties.
Our Ti-Tree Oil is one of nature’s secrets from New Zealand containing powerful antibacterial, anti fungal, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties that help combat skin irritation and infections including acne-causing bacteria.
Our Manuka and kanuka tress have a life cycle of approximately 25-30 years They are harvested from this farm in the Coromandel mountains of New Zealand and are in a natural native environment.
Our distillation plant was designed using a three dimensional software. This provided the computer experts to design the complete plant for greater efficiency using process flow computer simulations as well as the ability to calculate thermal efficiency.
The distillation plant is constructed from high quality stainless steel to ensure the finest quality Ti Tree oil is produced.
Mineral water comes from an underground aquifer ,This was drilled through solid granite,300 feet deep to access a pocket of spring water which has been naturally filtered over thousands of years and supplied direct to the plant bringing natural minerals for the steam distillation of Ti Tree Oil.
The plant is having an upgrade in the coming months and will soon be running fully on environmentally friendly bio-fuel.
The excess hot water from the plant has been efficiently re-cycled back to the steam generator with substantial cost savings as the water reaches the steam generator at a pre-heated temperature.
Our trees are harvested a sustainable fashion, which is by hand and causes no stress to the tree, We harvest once a year allowing the tree to re-generate naturally.
We are proud to be chemical and pesticide free on the farm.
