If you have been following us for a while, you would know that we are huge proponents of Australian Kunzea Oil - and for good reason! This Australian Native is commonly touted ‘Tasmania’s Best-Kept Natural Secret’ and it is the signature essential oil in our Zea Relief Kunzea Product Range.

Kunzea is endemic to Australia and primarily grows in North-East Tasmania. It is steam distilled from the Kunzea ambigua plant that is a member of Myrtaceae (or Myrtle Family).

Aromatically, Kunzea Oil has a pleasant scent with clean, fresh, invigorating undertones. The aroma is often compared to the scent of the Australian Bush.

Therapeutically, Kunzea may have even more beneficial properties than its better-known cousin Tea Tree. In addition, it has a much milder scent and sensation when applied to the skin. Kunzea Oil may also help to reduce pain and relieve inflammation. To learn more about its therapeutic benefits, read our blog Benefits of Australian Kunzea Essential Oil

If you haven’t used before, we strongly encourage you to give this remarkable essential oil a try


    The 100ml bottle is ideal for those who use Kunzea Oil multiple times per day. Blend with a carrier oil and massage into the skin. As with any essential oil, you should be cautious when applying Kunzea directly to the skin. 

    The pure essential oil is most commonly used to treat small wounds, minor burns, and fungal infections. Inhalation may relieve sinus pain, congestion anxiety.

    For those looking to relieve painful joints, muscles or skin inflammation, we would recommend trying one of the other products in our Australian Kunzea Range - all of which contain the natural benefits of Kunzea Oil.

    This works

    I have tried most of the creams on the market at the chemist, and other herbal oils as well but I really am impressed with this. The Kunzea cream is nicely made, works well and rubs in so you're not oily but I think I get most relief from the oil so I am preferring to that. (I bought both - if you have arthritis you will try anything!) And it smells strong but in a good, earthy kind of way. Not at all offensive. It won't cure your aches and pains but it genuinely does bring positive relief to sore muscles and joints. It was a recommended by a friend and I am very happy to recommend it to others.

    Thanks for sharing Penelope! We are really glad to hear it is helping you :) you may like to try the extra-strength cream at some stage - it is a bit double the strength of the original cream. But if you want to just continue using the pure oil, that is great as well xx

    This product is amazing. If i have any aches or pain,,as soon as i rub this in,there gone. It is a oil that i will always have in my collection.

    Bottle of relief

    Have found this essential oil to be of high quality and extremely good for eczema and skin issues. Such as relief!

    Miracle oil

    I’ve had a dodgy thumb for ages from crocheting, and after reading the reviews for Kunzea oil I thought I’d try it. I have tried a few different balms and creams and they didn’t really do much. I’ve made a balm out of the oil, and have been using it 2-3 times a day and I can straighten my thumb more than I have been able to for months and months! Looking forward to seeing more improvements over time. Thank you, Zea Relief!

    Very happy!

    When I finally received my order (no fault of the supplier, rather the inadequacies of Australia Post!) I was really pleased with my purchase. I specifically bought the Breathe Easy Essential Oil for my husband, who has been suffering a nagging bronchial condition for a while. He loves it and says it certainly helps him to sleep better and that even when his condition has improved, he wants to keep using it. I have been using the Kunzea Essential Oil and find it a very refreshing, relaxing experience. The customer service has been exemplary and I will certainly be ordering more from Zea RELIEF.


    It has worked wonders on cleaning and healing infected insect bites.

    That is fantastic Veronika! It is such a versatile oil :)

    I purchased Kunzea healing and purifying and tried as soon as I received it. I cannot believe the relief I have. I was supposed to go and have needles in my hip and spine. I have cancelled my appointments and will continue to use it. Amazing results


    Amazing - so glad I discovered kunzea oil!

    a 'bush experience'

    I'm really loving Kunzea oil. This is my first time using it so am still experimenting with it. Currently I am using it with your lavender in my diffuser and really like it. My husband has recently had heart surgery for a damaged valve as a result of a childhood illness. We are using it to create a great ambience as he has been recovering. He likes it and this evening I used some in oil on his forehead and temples to relieve his headache. There was some improvement but still working on the mix to be more effective. Some guidelines on blending would be helpful.

    Thanks Wendy! Really glad to hear you like it :) thanks for the feedback on the blending guidelines - it is absolutely something we will look into!

    Absolutely magic for pain and skin issues.

    It is a very special oil - thanks for sharing Lynne! :)
