Sweet and soothing. Reminiscent of happy memories

Kānuka essential oil is made by distilling leaves and twigs from the kānuka tree (kunzea ericoides). Each leaf contains a range of potent healing oils, which are stored in the oil sacs on the underside of the leaves. One of the main compounds found in kānuka oil is alpha-pinene, which is known to be highly antimicrobial, great for improving airflow to the lungs, and aiding memory.

Kānuka oil is a lighter oil than mānuka oil, which the skin tends to absorb more rapidly. Kānuka oil has a sweet, herbaceous and earthy scent.


Ways to use kānuka oil:

As an essential oil, kānuka is versatile and can be used for many different purposes. Here are our favourites:

  • Add a few drops to your washing powder or liquid for a hygienic clean and refreshing fragrance.
  • Place a couple of drops in your hands, cup them together and inhale to help with relaxation, getting ready for sleep and opening blocked airways.
  • Add a few drops to your favourite carrier oil (such as sweet almond or coconut oil) for an effective insect repellent.
  • Dilute with a carrier oil and apply to fungal infections to help reduce the effects.
  • Dilute with a non-comedogenic carrier oil and apply to acne for help with clearing breakouts.
  • Apply to dandruff (diluted) to help remedy the situation.
  • Add a few drops to your aromatherapy diffuser for a soothing and grounding fragrance.
