Can you use Mānuka oil directly on skin?

You can apply Mānuka oil directly to the skin - just a drop will do. It can be quite strong in its pure form so we recommend testing it on your skin first. You can dilute it by adding it to a carrier oil, such as coconut or almond oil. Use 10 drops of Mānuka oil to every 30ml of carrier oil and you’ve got a great power balm you can use on everything!
