    Manuka is a shrub endemic to New Zealand and Australia and it is the source of the nectar from which honeybees produce the highly esteemed manuka honey, the finest honey in the world.

    Manuka oil is similar in chemical makeup to tea tree oil but it is softer, more elegant and more herbaceous. New Zealand manuka oil is beloved by herbalists and while it has yet to be exploited fully in a fragrance, it is not entirely absent from the industry.

    Being located in New Zealand, Fraterworks is in the position to find and supply the absolute crème de la crème of fine manuka oil, and indeed we have. The New Zealand East coast, in particular the East Cape is renowned for its high quality manuka oil and it is from that region that we source ours.

    Manuka oil was historically used to treat wounds as it was believed to have antibacterial properties and early colonial settlers to New Zealand made tea from the foliage of the plant. The presumed efficacy of the oil is typically determined by the beta-triketone level (sometimes indicated by the βTK or MβTK™ term). Our oil has as minimum of 25%.

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    IFRA Standards

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA 51: 100%
    IFRA 49: 100%

    These are derived from calculated concentrations which do not replace chromatographic quantification on individual lots. Disclaimer...
