Where does Niaouli Essential Oil Come from?

Niaouli is a large evergreen tree that is native to Australia. It has five-inch long leaves and white-yellow flowers that blossom in tight spikes. Due to its flaky look, the tree has been given nicknames including bottlebush, paperbark, and paperbark tea tree. The essential oil is produced through steam distillation of the leaves, creating a pure and potent product.

The niaouli leaves and bark were commonly used by Indigenous Australians for various purposes including teas, basketmaking, and flavoring.

What is Niaouli Essential Oil Used For?

Niaouli essential oil is a naturally stimulating essential oil because of its eucalyptol content and composition of monoterpenes. Its chemistry makes it a pleasant complement to a soothing massage or diffuser blend.

Because of its powerful properties, Niaouli essential oil can support the maintenance of healthy-looking mouths and skin when diluted properly. It can also work as an effective addition to a cleaning spray by improving its cleansing benefits.
