ABOUT THE PLANT

Also known as 'Gomenol', Niaouli is an evergreen tree native to Australia, similar in appearance and aroma to Eucalyptus.

ABOUT THE OIL

Niaouli essential oil, from Melaleuca quinquenervia viridiflora (or MVQ), is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of Niaouli trees wild grown in Madagascar.

Aromatherapy Notes

This oil has a strong, slightly sweet, fresh, camphoraceous aromatic profile. 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. 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 in aromatherapy.

Traditional Uses

In Australia, the aboriginal peoples have used the leaves and oil of this tree to target a wide variety of ailments. The oil is stimulating and uplifting, clears circular or stagnant thought patterns, and can enhance concentration.
