Manuka and Kanuka Hydrosol
Manuka and Kanuka are both known for their natural antibacterial and antifungal properties and have been used for centuries by Maori as a natural remedy.
Hydrosol is produced during the steam extraction of Manuka and Kanuka essential oil. Hydrosols are especially good to use on animals as they contain minute amounts of essential oils which is great for animal’s sensitive skins.
Kanuka and Manuka have similar properties, though Kanuka is also known as an anti-inflammatory and is able to penetrate the skin and help with joint inflammation. To use Kanuka and Manuka essential oils undiluted on dog’s skin is not recommended as they are strong and can burn sensitive skin. Hydrosols are recommended for use on dogs.

- Help calm dogs that are fearful, agitated, hyperactive or anxious.
- Repels fleas and ticks
- Provides relief when applied to dry, itchy skin.

DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT ON CATS
Lynette recommends this product, she says: “I used this product on my dogs surgical scar, it stopped her licking and worrying at it. I also use it on myself to stop the mossies from eating me. If they do get me then it takes the itch away really quickly.”
