What is Kunzea Oil?
Australian Kunzea is natural treasure when it comes to essential oils. It could potentially be the greatest essential oil Australia has ever produced. It is derived from the terminal branches of the kunzea ambigua plant, Myrtaceae family, and has been discovered to have many remarkable analgesic and therapeutic properties. It is harvested from sustainable wild-growing plants in North-East Tasmania and is fast become Australia’s next wonder essential oil.
Kunzea ambigua, also known as “White cloud” or “Tick Bush”, is a tall shrub, up to three metres in height, with abundant white or pink flowers and is native to the coolest coastal areas of Australia (Southern New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania). It grows profusely in the wild especially in Tasmania and the Bass Strait islands.

While many of us are familiar with common essential oils such as Lavender, Tea Tree and Rose oil, Australia Kunzea is one native essential oil that is often forgotten, and its powerful properties are only being known by a very few people. It is regarded by those who know it a natural treasure when it comes to Australian essential oils and was used by native Aborigines to relieve red, dry and irritated skin conditions and to relieve muscular pain and tightness.
In more recent years, the benefits of Australian Kunzea Oil have been kept relatively secret, by studies are currently being worldwide to see the extent of Kunzea Oil’s capabilities. In France physicians are currently conducting studies to see if Australian Kunzea Oil can be used as a treatment in capsule form for Crohn’s Disease.
Australian Kunzea works to relax the muscle and reduce inflammation to alleviate pain, while working to increase blood flow to calm painful nerve endings. The key components in Australian Kunzea target the source of the pain, by deeply penetrating layers of skin to help promote the body’s own healing process. This makes our Zea Relief products a natural alternative to the numerous other products currently on the market that only numb the pain point.
