INCI Name: Kunzea Ambigua Branch/Leaf/Twig Oil
The Kunzea plant, with its bulbous tops and whimsical blossoms, is commonly referred to as
White Cloud, as well as
Tick Bush, recalling one of its traditional uses of controlling ticks on cattle in the outback. Kunzea Essential Oil has comparable properties and uses to Tea Tree Oil but offers a more pleasant aroma and milder sensation when applied topically. The Kunzea ambigua species that grows in Tasmania is chemically distinct from every other Kunzea species originating from any other ecosystem. One of these, Kunzea ericoides - also known as Kanuka - has a slightly different chemical profile, yielding a somewhat dissimilar aroma to that of Kunzea ambigua with consequently different applications.
Along with helping to purify against uninvited microbial activity, Kunzea Essential Oil is a fantastic choice when looking to support healthy lung and airway activity, especially if experiencing congestion. This essential oil is also considered an antioxidant and also helps boost the immune system. Kunzea Essential Oil is often used for helping to manage pain and inflammation and can help ease unwanted muscle spasms, while also working to increase blood flow to calm painful nerve endings. The key components in Australian Kunzea Oil target the source of the pain, by deeply penetrating layers of skin to help promote the body's own healing process. Like Tea Tree Oil, Kunzea can be used on teenage blemishes or other instances of red, irritated skin. Kunzea's penetrating analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties make this oil a great addition to massage blends.
When diffused, Kunzea Essential Oil helps create a relaxing atmosphere and creates a refreshing respiratory experience. This essential oil can help build confidence and is sometimes used to help release deeper emotional pain.
