Also known as "tick bush" or "white cloud", Kunzea essential oil is steam-distilled from the leaves, twigs, and flowers of the Kunzea ambigua shrub that grows wild in Tasmania and Eastern Australia. One of its major constituents is 1,8 cineole so it's a natural remedy for respiratory issues like cough, runny nose, cold, nasal congestion, sore throat, sinusitis, and bronchitis.
Kunzea essential oil is also known for its anti-inflammatory benefits due to its high content of alpha-pinene. It's the perfect addition to your pain blends for everyday aches and pains such as cramps, headaches, rheumatism, arthritis, joint and muscle pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, or tendonitis. After a hard day in the garden or an extreme workout, dilute Kunzea oil and soothe your muscles with an invigorating massage!
This oil might also be your skin's next BFF! Use it to clear up blemishes or acne as well as speed up the healing process and soothe red, itchy skin. When diffused, Kunzea essential oil has a pleasant smell similar to Roman chamomile. It can help to relieve stress, nervous tension and anxiety or just create an overall relaxing atmosphere.

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
