Kunzea Essential Oil

Kunzea ambigua

"Kunzea ambigua flowers" by John Tann is licensed under CC BY 2.0

Kunzea Essential Oil is sometimes also referred to as White Cloud Essential Oil, Tasmanian Spring Flower Essential Oil and Tick Bush Essential Oil.

Native to Australia and Tasmania, Kunzea ambigua is a shrub that produces small, fragrant white flowers with intriguingly long stamens.

Kunzea Essential Oil

I am still relatively new to working with Kunzea Essential Oil, but I see significant potential for this powerful Australian oil in emotional and physical applications. I am excited to continue working with the oil and am already finding that it is proving beneficial when incorporated into my personal blends used for muscular and arthritic pain.

For emotional applications, Robbi Zeck, ND, writes that Kunzea Essential Oil "helps to defuse deep emotional pain that has grown solid as a result of suppression, creating internal blocks in the body's meridian system." [Robbi Zeck, ND, The Blossoming Heart: Aromatherapy for Healing and Transformation (Victoria, Australia: Aroma Tours, 2008), 88.]

Aromatically, Kunzea Essential Oil vaguely reminds me of a combination of Eucalyptus and Fragonia, with perhaps a hint of Manuka.
