Why haven't I heard of Kunzea Oil before now?
We had not heard of it either! It wasn’t until we lived and worked in Tasmania that the locals shared Kunzea Oil with us.
Their best-kept secret for so many years is now starting to be shared with the world! Kunzea Ambigua is grown and distilled in Tasmania. The plant is a member of the Melaleuca family and is often compared to Eucalyptus and Tea Tree. However, it has been discovered that the properties of Kunzea Oil are far more powerful!

​Michelle Brass, co-founder of Zea Relief and esteemed Naturopath, continued to receive enquiries from her clients about purchasing Kunzea Oil. These constant enquiries about this mysterious plant oil intrigued us, so we decided to investigate further. After a couple of years of trials and research we followed through with the production of our Zea Relief Products!

Have any studies been conducted on Kunzea Oil?
Over recent years, a good number of studies have been reported relative to the therapeutic benefits of Kunzea essential oil in a variety of common complaints. This has led to Kunzea oil having been listed with the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) for the following therapeutic claims:
  • For the temporary relief of the pain of arthritis and rheumatism 
  • Relief of the symptoms of influenza 
  • Relief of muscular aches and pains 
  • Helps relieve nervous tension, stress and mild anxiety 
These are the allowable formal therapeutic claims that can be made in Australia. However, these and other therapeutic benefits can be expanded upon.

There are further potential therapeutic indications for Kunzea essential oil. Various case histories and anecdotal reports suggest a variety of uses.

We are starting to conduct our own research to determine the full potential of Australian Kunzea Oil.

Are there any dangers/cautions I should be aware of when using Kunzea Oil for myself or for my children?
As with all essential oils, Kunzea Oil should not be used undiluted.The overall composition of Australian Kunzea Oil, with a low content of 1,8 cineole, makes it as a safe, non-toxic essential oil to use when diluted. There is no medical reason why Kunzea oil cannot be used during pregnancy if diluted, however if you are uncertain please seek the advice of a healthcare practitioner.

As with all essential oils, keep out of reach of children and consider testing a small amount on the inner forearm to test for an adverse reactions before applying product to the affected area.

As for our Zea Relief Products, they are very safe to apply directly to the skin for both adults and children. However we do recommend that children using our products are over 6 months of age.

Finally, anyone taking blood thinners should be careful when using our products. We recommend checking with a health care practitioner for advice.
