Enjoy the many benefits of kunzea essential oil

Kunzea oil’s scent is like a fresh, light variety of Eucalyptus. This gentleness means that for most people, it can be applied directly to the skin without dilution. It can also be diluted with a vegetable or nut oil if spot testing reveals an irritation. Its aroma features notes of Pine and a distinct herbaceousness, reminiscent of the Australian bush. It is a relatively new oil, but its benefits have been shown as ideal for foot spas and bathing, as a deodourant throughout the home, and as a relaxant for tired muscles. It is often used in conjunction with Sandalwood oil, and is perfect for use in a burner, vapouriser, or diffuser.

History of Kunzea Essential Oil


There are no stories of indigenous people use at present but it is almost certain the indigenous people would have used the plant.

Early European Usage

The early settlers noticed native animals always use to sleep under a Kunzea shrub.
It was later established that the native animals slept under the bush to rid themselves of ticks, as a result the bush was called ‘Tick Bush’.
Like many native Australian plants with an abundance of essential oils, the plant is not attacked by many insects, as the oil in the leaf is quite unpalatable to most insects and native animals.

Present Day Usage

Each harvest of Kunzea essential oil is tested for quality and stored in optimum, even temperature conditions.
It is used for treating anxiety, stress, aiding relaxation, insect stings and bites.


Extraction and Farming Method

Kunzea essential oil is extracted via steam distillation of the leaves and green branchlets.
Kunzea is grows wildly and abundantly in the wild in north east Tasmania, it is also in eastern Victoria and south east New South Wales.
The Kunzea plants are sometimes ‘pruned’ by grazing animals and there are no fertilisers required.
Kunzea is hand harvested and are then steam distilled immediately to maintain quality Kunzea essential oil.


Natural Occurrence in Australia                                                                                                                                          

Kunzea essential oil naturally occurs in the woodland of eastern Tasmania, southern Victoria and south east New South Wales.
The kunzea ambigua plant grows to around 5 metres, they can grow in clusters and they actually benefit from regular pruning, if not they become quite gangly. A superior variety is farmed in north east Tasmania by wild harvesting an extensive population of plants.
Harvesting for Kunzea essential oil has been carried out for nearly 20 years.
Reasonable but not high and regular rainfall is preferred.
