Description
Kanuka essential oil is related to tea tree, eucalyptus, and clove bud. Its sweet, fresh, herbaceous aroma (with an earthy note) has been compared to tea tree, but is more delicate and calming. Kanuka’s relaxing effects are prized for muscle and joint blends, and its gentle touch can soothe skin irritated by germs. Our distiller hand harvests the leaves of wildcrafted kanuka trees in the East Cape of New Zealand and works with local communities to protect sustainable forestlands. Kanuka is often called “White Tea Tree” and is popular in perfumes.

Purify - Germs

A Passion for Aromatherapy

Aromatics International would not be what it is today without your shared belief in what we do, what we stand for, and how we conduct our aromatherapy practice.

I embarked on my journey to source pesticide-free, sustainable products from small-scale farmers and a major criteria of mine is that everything I source is both aromatically vibrant and also therapeatically effective. I love sharing what I find in this world with others. I am constantly blown away by the positive response I receive from all of you. I thank all of you for your strong support throughout the years and am continually inspired by the warm words you share with me. It truly keeps me going.

Love, Karen

Kanuka Oil

Nice! Was looking for a substitute in a joint care lotion that didn't have safety concerns.

Kanaka Oil

Still trying different things with this oil. I really like arnica, and wanted to try similar oils for joint pain relief. It does help with itchiness from dry skin.

Kanuka Oil

Amazing smell! Bought this due to the hot humid summers we have in the midwest, USA. Makes a wonderful oil to add to a foot rub or soak recipe. It helps the soreness from being on your feet for long periods and helps with the anti fungal qualities to prevent athletes foot. Also sooths irritated skin in all those sweaty spots!

Kanuka Oil

can be used for the relief of swelling and muscular pain, for sprains, strains and sports injuries. It helps clear inflammation.

Great product

I use Kanuka with a carrier oil for shoulder, back, and leg pain. I have used it in the diffuser and love how fresh it smells. Made a roller bottle for a friend who has pain associated with an auto-immune disease. It works well for her.
