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.

This has a nice crisp scent. Sometimes I feel a nice tingle in my nose when I breathe the scent in while using my diffuser, but otherwise nothing else too wild.

Thank you for distinguishing between tea tree an malaleuca
I don't know why doterra thinks these are the same thing, but they're not. They have similar terpene profiles and are morphologically similar, but they are different plants with different benefits/risks.

Can I deluge with water and spray plants to deter bugs?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. My plants had fungus gnats. I mixed about 10 drops of tea tree oil and 10 drops of lavender oil in a half gallon of warm water and drenched my plants. It worked immediately, but, I had to reapply a few times. When I reapplied, I just put the mix in a spray bottle and sprayed the soil.
