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.
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 for respiratory conditions.
In Australia, the aboriginal peoples have used the leaves and oil of this tree to target a wide variety of ailments; from general aches and pains to clearing respiratory conditions, disinfecting and healing wounds and purification of drinking water.
