Mānuka oil - A secret weapon

Mānuka honey has been the star of the honey scene for a few hundreds years now, but many people are unaware of the benefits of it's close relative - The Mānuka oil. Mānuka oil is a sweet scented oil sourced from the leaves of the Mānuka tree. It has various uses for all sorts of requirements.
At Happy Valley, we sustainably prune branches from the Mānuka trees to ensure that the trees aren’t harmed upon harvest of the Mānuka oil. We produce both a pure Mānuka oil and a Mānuka oil with Almond oil, for added moisturising properties.
