Manuka (Leptospermum Scoparium) is a native tree of New Zealand traditionally used by New Zealand's Maori people and early European Settlers for its healing properties. Manuka has been used to treat a range of skin problems including chronic sores, ringworm and eczema. The young shoots of Manuka were chewed and swallowed for dysentery, and boiled to use for rheumatism, sore and stiff back, sprains and abrasions. A decoction of leaves was drunk for urinary complications and to reduce fever. Vapor baths of Manuka have been used for treating blocked sinuses, hayfever, head colds and even bronchitis and asthma. Crushed leaves were often applied as a poultice for many skin diseases and were directly applied to wounds and deep gashes to enhance healing and reduce the risk of infection.
