Niaouli Essential Oil is a light, clear to pale-yellow liquid with a strong and penetrating camphoraceous aroma. It is aromatically close to Tea Tree and Eucalyptus essential oils and is further known for having similar properties as Tea Tree Oil, albeit with a subtler scent.
Niaouli Oil comes from the young leaves and twigs of Melaleuca quinquenervia, an evergreen tree or shrub from the Myrtaceae family that is native to Australia, Papua New Guinea, and the French Pacific Islands. The Niaouli tree is a close cousin of the Tea tree (Maleleuca alternifolia) and Cajeput tree (Melaleuca cajeputi), having a similar appearance.
Traditionally, Niaouli has been valued for its cleansing properties, widely considered to bolster immunity. It is believed that centuries ago, babies were wrapped in Niaouli bark to confer strength and protection in communities where the trees grow wild.
