Kunzea ambigua essential oil, is relatively new to the rest of the world. Unlike Tea Tree oil, its aroma is very pleasant, it is almost always compared as ‘a smell of the Australian bush’.

Kunzea is commonly called Australian Tick Bush found growing on the coastal strips along New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania often forming dense thickets.  Kunzea is closely related to the genus Callistemon  – the bottle-brushes and also bears some similarity to Melaleuca and Leptospermum. One species also occurs in New Zealand – Kunzea ericoides, with the common name of Kanuka.

Australian animals are often found feeding and sleeping around Kunzea as this bush cleanses the animals ticks, lice and other parasites. Hence the popular name “tick bush”

Over recent years, a good number of anecdotal reports relative to the therapeutic benefits of Kunzea essential oil in a variety of common complaints:

For the temporary relief of the pain of arthritis and rheumatism; relief of the symptoms of influenza; Sinus headaches from allergens, relief of muscular aches and pains; helps relieve nervous tension, soft tissue bruising, stress and mild anxiety, mental exhaustion, gout and an excellent insect repellent. Kunzea Essential Oil has been tested and proven effective against staph, e-coli, and candida.

Kunzea essential oil contains a unique natural composition containing a high content of important sesquiterpene compounds. This has led to Kunzea 100% Pure Essential oil having been listed with the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration. Whilst there are numerous therapeutic benefits, the TGA state only their  allowable formal therapeutic claims.

Although I believe any words containing “tism” and “itis” is well suited to Kunzea

Key Points for TGA reference are:

  • The temporary relief of the pain of arthritis
  • Relief of the symptoms of influenza
  • Relief of muscular aches and pains
  • Helps relieve nervous tension, stress and mild anxiety
  • Temporary relief of the pain of rheumatism
  • Helps heal cuts and bruises

However, Dr. Daniel Pénoël, a renowned French physician who specialises in the therapeutic use of essential oils, gives high praise for Kunzea essential oil.
Dr Penoel discusses these and other therapeutic benefits and expands his views and usage.
Kunzea essential oil is Australia’s gift to the world for Natural Remedies.
