New Zealand Tea Tree Uses 

The wood was often used for tool handles. Mānuka sawdust a delicious flavour when used for smoking meats and fish. It is cultivated in New Zealand for manuka honey when honey bees the nectar from its flowers, and for the pharmaceutical industry. It is also used for carving. 

An essential oil, for which many medicinal claims are made, is produced by steam distillation of its leaves. Manuka, as it is called by most New Zealanders, was used in pre-European times by Maori, and still is. The steam from leaves boiled in water was inhaled for head colds. A decoction was prepared from the leaves and bark and the warm liquid was rubbed on stiff muscles and aching joints. The emollient white gum, called pai Manuka, was given to nursing babies and also used to treat scalds and burns. Chewing the bark is said to have a relaxing effect and it enhances sleep.
