Manuka launches scented yoga wear

Friday 22 February, 2008

mauka inhaleYoga clothing and lifestyle company Manuka Life has created what it claims is the first ever scented yoga range, Inhale Manuka.

A tea tree fragrance has been embedded into each piece of clothing, using a patented scent formula. Every time the clothes are washed, the scent is refreshed.

Maunka Life founder Leonie Ellyatt says the scent works as an anti-fungal device, keeping skin fresh and clean, as well as providing an uplifting fragrance.

She says: "We really wanted to create something that truly enhanced your yoga practice. Scent is our most powerful sense, so we have been very keen to create a range that used essential oils to complement yoga.

"We've used tea tree first because it has many therapeutic benefits. It's from my homeland, Australia, too - so there is a special spiritual connection for me."

The range comes in to different styles of trousers and tops - as well as two different colour schemes - and has been tried and tested by yoga practitioners.

Inhale Manuka will be available from March 2008. Prices range from £32 to £48.
