Welcome to Maku Natural Products

I have always been interested in Rongoā Māori (Māori medicine), probably due to treatments administered by my grandmother Riria Harrison (nee Hale). It was not until I had my own children that I felt the need to actually pursue the remedies myself, and then to administer them. It's important to me that my products are accessible to the people who need them, so my prices are at a minimum.

Knowledge of the healing properties of New Zealand Mānuka honey has been spreading in recent years. The Mānuka tree offers many useful healing benefits, which are captured in our Mānuka Salve healing balm and cuticle oil. Mānuka Salve is heat treated and suitable for shipping internationally from New Zealand.

The highest quality Kūmarahou only grows in specific conditions in the northern regions of New Zealand. I initially transplanted some Kūmarahou trees in order to make them more accessible, these trees have multiplied to the extent that I am able to share the dehydrated leaves.

All manufacturing of these products is done by hand, respecting traditional methods.

I have had 100% customer satisfaction to date, but would be happy to replace or refund any product if it is returned as unsatisfactory within a month of purchase.
