Tea Tree vs Niaouli (Melaleuca)

  • Tea Tree’s aroma is fresh, medicinal, earthy, and herbaceous. Tea Tree is stronger than Niaouli and may not be as suited for sensitive skin. Tea Tree is safe for children 2+ when properly diluted.

  • Niaouli’s aroma is sharp, medicinal, slightly sweet, and citrusy. Its scent comes across more sweet and medicinal than Tea Tree’s. Niaouli is more mild than Tea Tree and can be used on more sensitive skin when properly diluted. Niaouli is not recommended for children under 10.

Can I diffuse tea tree oil or blends with tea tree oil if I have a dog?
Allison W on Feb 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: At this time, we have found insufficient research about using essential oils on or around domestic animals, including procedures and possible reactions. Because of this lack of research, we are unable to advise how to use essential oils with pets. For more information and references, please email us at Support@rockymountainoils.com.
