In comparison to other essential oils, the medical potential of Ducane kunzea Essential Oil is still in its infancy. However, the combination of both anecdotal and scientific evidence, and also the fact it's been given (TGA) Therapeutic Goods Administration Approval in Australia which is rare to achieve, suggests this Tasmanian plant oil will provide amazing results for its patients for many years to come.
There are several proven and promising therapeutic uses of Kunzea Oil, and here are a few health benefits that we have uncovered.
Skincare: Kunzea is a great addition to your daily skincare routine! When compared to other essential oils, Kunzea has a much milder sensation when applied topically. Dilute and apply topically to either your face or body to help nourish your skin, reduce the appearance of blemishes and help speed up the healing process.
Skin Irritations: Kunzea Oil has had positive results in the treatment of rashes, skin blemishes, skin irritations and acne. The science behind Kunzea Oil and its unique composition support these results, as the low level of cineole has been found to be non-irritant and generally well tolerated on even the most sensitive skin types
Eczema, Psoriasis, and Skin Inflammatory Conditions: Topical applications of Kunzea have been found to offer anti-inflammatory effect on the skin to manage psoriasis.
Fungal & Bacterial Infections: Kunzea oil has been tested for its effectiveness against a number of disease-causing bacteria. Kunzea is particularly effective against Staphylococcus aureus, including the MRSA variety (multiple antibiotic resistants). (Golden Staph)
Arthritis and Joint Pain: If you are suffering from arthritis or joint pain, massaging a product containing Kunzea Oil into the skin may help. The active compounds within Kunzea Oil have shown to be anti-inflammatory in nature, therefore it is regularly suggested to those suffering from a variety of inflammatory conditions associated with joint pain and arthritis.
Muscular Aches & Pains: As we have spoken about at various stages throughout this article, Kunzea has several important compounds that work to help soothe fatigued muscles. We have a lot of customers who use our Kunzea Products after a workout or other physical activity to speed up the recovery process. Well-known Australian aromatherapist, Mark Webb, agrees that Kunzea can help to promote the rapid repair of soft tissue injuries, such as sprains and strains.
Mental Exhaustion: One very important reason that many people use Kunzea oil is that it creates a cooling and refreshing effect. Normally, people suffering from certain conditions and disorders are slightly sluggish. Kunzea oil, a stimulant, removes exhaustion and mental sluggishness and rejuvenates the spirits of people feeling unwell
Nervous Tension, Stress & Mild Anxiety: Considered a very comforting essential oil, Kunzea will enhance your inner strength and help release pain and hurt. We see significant potential for use of Kunzea in emotional applications for reducing stress and aiding depression. 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".
Tick & Insect Repellant: This use of Kunzea Oil as a repellent is still being studied, however, the popular name "Tick Bush" is derived from native animals said to be often found sleeping under Kunzea plants, where they seek relief from ticks and other parasites. Kunzea was evaluated and compared with Citronella Oil for its insecticidal and repelling properties. It was found to have comparable benefits to Citronella
Sitz Bath, BathTub or Spa: Many people add Kunzea oil to baths, spas, and saunas because of its refreshing and antiseptic attributes. Most of the benefits of Kunzea essential oil can be accessed through the vapour, as well as a topical application.
Insect Bites and Stings: If you forget to apply your Kunzea Product before going outside, never fear! Given its natural anti-inflammatory properties, Kunzea may also help to soothe insect bites once bitten. Helping to reduce the redness and stop the itch!
Perfumery: Beyond its therapeutic uses, Kunzea Oil is being considered as something unique in the green herbaceous family. Its scent is clean, fresh, and medicinal with a hint of spice, making it quite unique as a perfumery ingredient
Purify the Air: The antiseptic and anti-bacterial nature of kunzea oil makes it an ideal aroma to scent your home. Simply add a few drops of the pure essential oil to an aromatherapy diffuser, oil burner, humidifier, vaporiser or air-purifier. You will instantly fill your home, office or spa, with the aromatic and therapeutic benefits of Kunzea essential oils. Your home environment will improve, and you will also be enhanced by breathing the essential oil.
