What is Niaouli essential oil?
This relative of Tea Tree has a sweeter, woody aroma than its cousin, and has a unique chemistry particularly clarifying to the skin. Its content of eucalyptol and composition of monoterpenes give it an enlivening and stimulating aroma.
Where does it come from?
Niaouli is a large evergreen tree native to Australia. These distinctive trees have a unique, flaky trunk and five-inch long leaves with yellow-tinted flowers that flourish in tight spikes at the ends of the branches. Niaouli essential oil is steam-distilled from the long, gentle leaves of this giant tree.
Why use it for a surface spray?
Niaouli is unique, powerful, and cleansing! Widely used in a variety of cosmetics such as lotions, creams, soaps, and toothpastes, Niaouli helps keep the skin and mouth healthy-looking and clean. Like Tea Tree, it can also effectively cleanse both skin and household surfaces.
