Niaouli oil is extracted from the young leaves and twigs by steam distillation. Niaouli oil comes from Melaleuca viridiflora (also known as Melaleuca quinquenervia) of the Myrtaceae family.
This large evergreen tree is native to Australia, New Caledonia and the French Pacific Islands and has a flexible trunk, spongy bark, pointed linear leaves and spikes of sessile yellowish flowers.
Because the falling leaves covering the ground act as a strong disinfectant, it makes for a healthy environment, and it also purifies water. It was assigned its botanical name in 1788 during Captain Cook's travel and was historically used in French obstetric hospital wards because of its antiseptic properties. It is still a popular ingredient for toothpaste and mouth sprays.


The therapeutic properties of niaouli oil are analgesic, anti-rheumatic, antiseptic, bactericidal, balsamic, cicatrisant, decongestant, expectorant, febrifuge, insecticide, stimulant, vermifuge and vulnerary.

Warning: Niaouli oil is considered a safe oil, since it is non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitizing.
