Niaouli Oil may be used in place of Tea Tree Oil when the smell of Tea Tree is found objectionable due to its somewhat medicinal aroma and with less tendency to irritate the skin. The medicinal and aromatic properties of the two are considered similar, yet Niaouli Essential Oil has a sweeter, less harsh scent and thus is employed more commonly for respiratory issues.
Niaouli Essential Oil is comprised of approximately 60% 1,8-Cineole, an oxide that is also abundant in Eucalyptus Globulus Essential Oil and that gives Eucalyptus its distinctive fresh-medicinal aroma. Melaleuca quinquinervia viridiflora is one of four commercially important and aromatherapeutically significant species of the genus Melaleuca, the other three being M. alternifolia (Tea Tree) and M. cajuputi (Cajuput) and M. ericifolia (Rosalina).
One of our favorite ways of using Niaouli Essential Oil is to help support healthy lung and airway function, especially relating to lung and sinus congestion. Besides being wonderful for supporting the respiratory system, Niaouli Oil is great for rejuvenating skin and can help with skin challenges such as acne, cuts, burns, and minor infections. A powerful, stimulating skin cleanser, Niaouli Essential Oil can be thought of as a gentler version of Tea Tree Oil that is great for sensitive skin. Niaouli 1,8-Cineole can also be an adjunct when added to a blend for the aches and pains associated with aging. It is soothing for the digestive system when dealing with gas, cramps, or upset stomach. Its antimicrobial activity can help keep germs at bay and may help inhibit the viruses encountered in daily life.
