Kunzea is endemic to Australia and primarily grows in North-East Tasmania. It is steam distilled from the Kunzea ambigua plant that is a member of Myrtaceae (or Myrtle Family).
Aromatically, Kunzea Oil has a pleasant scent with clean, fresh, invigorating undertones. The aroma is often compared to the scent of the Australian Bush.
Therapeutically, Kunzea may have even more beneficial properties than its better-known cousin Tea Tree. In addition, it has a much milder sensation when applied to the skin. Kunzea Oil may also help to reduce pain and relieve inflammation. To learn more about its therapeutic benefits, read our blog Benefits of Australian Kunzea Essential Oil.
If you haven’t used before, we strongly encourage you to give this remarkable essential oil a try.
