HOW WE MAKE IT

Cut

Around 1 ton of Manuka leaf is cut during each harvest. We harvest around 2 – 3 days per week. We move around the property allowing each section to regrow naturally.

Packed

The Manuka foliage is then packed into large stainless steel bins that are then taken to the distillation unit. The foliage is compacted as much as possible as this gives a higher yield of oil.

Distillation

The bins are then lowered into the distillation unit where it operates at 100 degrees C and steams the oil out of the leaves of the plant.

Manuka Oil

From 1 tonne of foliage we can produce between 2 to 3 litres of pure manuka oil. The oil is then separated, filtered and rested before being measured and bottled. We take pride in every drop of organic manuka oil produced. All of our facilities are operated with care and maintained to ensure we are producing the best quality oil we can.
