HISTORY OF USE
Niaouli Essential Oil is a relative of Tea Tree. The niaouli tree and its oil has a long history of use in many different cultures. In New Caledonia, the fresh air and absence of malaria is credited solely to the niaouli tree. It is also used on those islands to purify the water supply. In the Middle East, niaouli leaves are valued for their use in making a tea that helps to stimulate healthy bowels. Niaouli oil has also been used in many hospitals: the French have used it in obstetrics and gynecology because of its high antiseptic qualities. Niaouli oil is still a popular ingredient in toothpaste and in mouth sprays, and the vapor of niaouli oil has potent insecticidal powers.
Melaleuca viridiflora is a variety of the tree which produced cajuput, and it grows principally in New Caledonia and Australia. Like M. leucadendron, it is evergreen, has a spongy bark which flakes off, linear, lanceolate leaves of an ash colour, and white flowers on a long spike. The leaves are extremely aromatic and the essential oil is distilled from the fresh leaves and twigs. Niaouli oil is often called Gomenol, because distillation once took place near the port of Gomen in New Caledonia.
Like cajeput, it does not seem to have appeared in Europe until the seventeenth century, although it was very highly valued by the locals, who used it for reducing fever and healing wounds and considered it good for diarrhoea and rheumatism.
Analgesic: The pain relieving property of this oil makes it a very good analgesic. It eliminates pain by inducing numbness in the nerves and by desensitizing the area. It is very effective in relieving the pain of headaches, migraines, toothaches, earaches, and muscle and joint pain, as well as pain due to sprains.
Antirheumatic: This oil stimulates the circulation of the blood and lymph, thereby preventing the accumulation of uric acid in the joints and bringing warmth to various parts of the body. These two factors together help give relief from rheumatism, arthritis, and gout.
Antiseptic: Open wounds are prone to infections since bacteria, fungi, and other microbes have a very good chance of getting into the blood stream through these wounds. Bacteria also reside in the urogenital tracts, colon, prostrate, intestines, and kidneys and cause infections of the urethra and other sensitive body parts. The essential oil of Niaouli, thanks to its antiseptic properties, can inhibit bacterial growth in those areas and gives good protection against sepsis, tetanus, and infections of the other internal organs.
Bactericidal: This oil kills bacteria and inhibits bacterial growth and infections.
Balsamic: This oil promotes growth and boosts health by promoting proper absorption and distribution of nutrients in the body. It also increases strength.
Cicatrisant: People don’t like to see scars on their face or skin. You may have tried those creams and lotions on the market but have gotten no results. If you are losing hope of ever having clear skin, why don’t you try using the oil of Niaouli? As a cicatrisant, it diminishes scars and the after marks left by acne, pimples, or pox on the skin. This oil also speeds up the growth of new tissues and cells in the affected area to give it a brand new look. These new tissues will replace the old and damaged tissues of the scars so the scars will ultimately fade away.
Decongestant: This essential oil also opens up any congestion of the lungs, bronchi, larynx, pharynx, trachea and the nasal tracts by clearing out the deposition of phlegm in those areas. This helps you breathe easier and guarantee a good sleep at the end of the day.
Expectorant: The expectorant property of this oil loosens up toughened depositions of phlegm or catarrh in the lungs, bronchi, larynx, pharynx, trachea and the nasal tracts, thereby giving relief from heaviness in the chest, as well as coughs and congestion.
Febrifuge: This oil helps to lower body temperature during fevers by fighting the infections that cause the fever and by promoting sweat. This also helps to detoxify the blood to some extent, thereby promoting faster relief from fever.
Insecticide: It kills insects (barring cockroaches and a few other very stubborn survivors) and also keeps them away. This can be used in sprays and vaporizers to achieve this effect and keep your area insect-free.
Stimulant: It is a stimulant for the systems functioning inside the body. Niaouli oil stimulates blood circulation as well as the secretion of hormones, enzymes, and other juices while also stimulating metabolic processes. These include digestion, absorption, and excretion. In this way, it stimulates growth and strengthens immunity.
Vermifuge: Niaouli essential oil also kills intestinal worms. It is effective on both round worms and tape worms. The presence of worms obstructs the normal physical and mental growth and also interferes with the absorption of nutrients by the body. The use of this oil can eliminate this obstructed growth by eliminating the worms responsible for the condition. It can also be safely given to children, who suffer from worms more often than adults.
Vulnerary: The essential oil of Niaouli helps your wounds heal faster and keeps them protected from infections when applied as an external application on the wounds mixed with any lotion or cream. This oil is equally beneficial in healing internal wounds, cuts, and ulcers. It activates the leucocytes and platelet particles in the infected place and prevents the intrusion of microbes. The disinfectant property of this oil itself inhibits microbial infections or growth in the affected place.
Other Benefits: It tones up the digestive system, cures skin infections, clears up congestion of oily skin and can be used as an antidote against insect bites and sting. It is also effective against boils, abscesses, acne, and rashes.
Niaouli is considered a strong antiseptic, and is prescribed by phytotherapists and aromatherapists for the urinary system (cystitis and leucorrhoea), and for pulmonary trouble (bronchitis, catarrh, runny or stuffy nose). Many people can tolerate it without suffering any side effects.
Always use niaouli oil in combination with other oils – especially eucalyptus, pine and myrtle – for pulmonary problems, respiratory problems, colds and ‘flu. An inhalation is best for the latter: fill a large bowl with hot water, add 2 drops niaouli, and 1 drop each of eucalyptus and myrtle, and inhale under a towel. Follow this with an oil rubbed on to the chest, sinus area, temple and nape of neck: mix 10 ml (2 tsp) soya oil, 5 drops niaouli, 2 drops eucalyptus and 1 drop myrtle.
Used to improve digestion, strengthen the immune system and support the endocrine system, cleanse the intestines, purify, remove cellulite and waste materials from the body, remove excess fluids, relax the nerves, open sinus and breathing passages, uplift
For cystitis, leucorrhoea and irritations, niaouli is invaluable. When using the bidet, add 2 drops of niaouli and a few flakes of a natural, scent-free soap (or 15 ml [1 tbsp] sea salt). Then make an oil to rub on the stomach and lower back three to four times a day: mix 5 ml (1 tsp) soya oil and 5 drops niaouli. These two remedies can also be very helpful for women who have inflammation and cystitis
In France, many vets use niaouli essential oil on dogs: diluted with cooled boiled water it is effective on infected wounds and all skin irritations. It is also rubbed neat into rheumatic canine limbs.
