Used for stubborn skin and nail conditions. This 100% natural lotion is a powerful blend of traditional Thyme, NZ native Manuka as well as Horopito. Leaves of the Horopito tree have been traditionally used by Maori treat various skin conditions. Early European settlers also used Horopito medicinally, including infusions of the leaf for internal problems, or simply chewing the fresh leaves. Skin complaints were treated using bruised leaves which had been steeped in water or chewed before application. The therapeutic activity of the main component of Horopito, polygodial, has been well documented & researchers in NZ have demonstrated its ability to support fungal balance.
