Niaouli (Melaleuca) Essential Oil (Melaleuca quinquenervia) is also commonly known as Broad-Leaved Paperbark, Paper Bark Tea Tree, and Punk Tree. Niaouli (Melaleuca) Essential Oil has a medium-strength sharp, slightly sweet, and citrusy aroma presenting a middle fragrance note.

Niaouli Essential Oil
I got it because someone told me they used it for poison ivy. I had a bad case, it arrived when I was mostly done with it but still had some mild itching. It appeared to help & I’m glad to have it for next time as I’m a gardener & there probably will be a next time. And the smell was milder than tea tree oil which was nice.

Sometimes I get cold sores this is a great oil for that. It’s good for sores of any sort. I’m sure there are many different things you can use this for, but ones I have mentioned is how I use this oil.

Love this niaouli oil.
I blend this niaouli oil with a few drops of sweet orange in some argan oil and use it as a hand moisturizer. It smells great and helps stop the spread of germs.

First time to use RMO's Niaouli. We use Niaouli in our bathroom cleaning solution.

I've purchased Melaleuca from another source in the past and it was quite strong/odorous but RMOs Niaouli reminds me of a combination of tea tree and eucalyptus -- a pleasant difference.

If the niaouli oil is for more sensitive skin, why is it not recommended for children under 10, but the tea tre oil is safe for 2 & up? I assume I know at least a partial answer, but would like to confirm.
Emily on Jan 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Great question! Niaouli has a natural constituent called Cineole which is not safe for children under the age of 10. But the oil is gentler on the skin for adults. Thanks! -RMO Team
What is the difference between the Tea Tree and Melaleuca oils that you carry? I thought they were the same, but they are sold separately and melaleuca is cheaper.

BEST ANSWER: This information can be found under our "facts" section in the product pages. They come from the same family and they are both very similar in properties The main difference is Niaouli is milder than Tea Tree and can be used on more sensitive skin when properly diluted. Niaouli is not recommended for children under 10.
