ABOUT THE PLANT

Also; known as 'Gomenol', Niaouli is a shrub or small tree up to 25 meters high with a papery bark. It grows well in swampy ground. In Australia, it is commonly found along the coastal strip of New South Wales, all the way up to the northern tip of Queensland.

ABOUT THE OIL

Niaouli 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 has a sweeter, less harsh scent and thus is employed more commonly for respiratory issues.

OF INTEREST

In Australia, the aboriginal peoples have used the leaves and oil of this tree to treat a wide variety of ailments and for the purification of drinking water.

Niaouli oil is still a popular ingredient in toothpaste and in mouth sprays, and the vapor of niaouli oil has potent insect neutralizing powers.
