species of the myrtaceae family. A non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitising true Niaouli oil rich in cineole and botanically related to Tea Tree, Cajuput and Eucalyptus. Steam distillation of the leaves and twigs produces a clear oil. Our oil has strong top and middle notes giving a fresh, sweet camphoraceous odour reminiscent of Eucalyptus and Cardomon. The oil is generally said to have antiseptic and analgesic properties.
It can be used for treating children provided that the dilution is kept to 1% or less. Its high cineol content gives it clearing properties similar to those of eucalyptus.
Methods of use: Bath, massage, vaporisation, disinfectant and skin care.
Cautions: None at present.
