A Manuka flower<br />
In traditional medicine the Manuka tree is used in its entirety. The leaves and bark are used for fevers and urinary problems; inhalation of boiled leaves treats head colds. Manuka acts as a diuretic, a sedative, against mastitis and to help heal fractures. The bark is also used to alleviate constipation; chewing the capsules helps diarrhea, inflammation and dysentery.
