Niaouli

Niaouli

Niaouli is similar in action to tea tree oil but is sometimes preferred because its aroma is milder and more pleasant. Niaouli oil is analgesic, antiseptic, bactericidal, cicatrisant, insecticidal, decongestant and vermifuge. Its aroma is stimulating and uplifting; it clears the head and may aid in concentration. It is an excellent antiseptic for treating pulmonary infections such as bronchitis and sinusitis. For respiratory problems, it blends well with Eucalyptus, Scotch Pine, and Ravensara.
