KAN-103

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
