Aroma: Our oil has a fresh, clean, somewhat herbaceous and woody aroma with hints of a sweet, yet spicy citrus note that’s more prominent in the dry down. For an oil that’s steam distilled from the twigs of flowering branches, it has a good amount of depth to it. It’s the perfect middle note for blends that need a little something in between a citrus or heavy woodsy oil.
Aromatherapist notes: After studying this oil for a several months this year, I opted to use it in my incredible Muscle Rub blend. It’s soothing on sore muscles and aches and eases tension. This oil is also incredibly easy to blend with because it’s middle note. In fact it blends well with most citruses and heavy oils like Alligator Juniper and Vetiver.
The distiller shared that it has a wide range of uses within blends that include what I mention above as well as respiratory support.
This oil also lends itself to be a great emotional support oil during difficult times. Robbi Zeck says “when you need to transform pain and inflammation, Kunzea reaches inward and soothes acute as well as persistent knots of suffering.”
If you’re looking for blending ideas start with citruses and bright florals for top notes and use your heavier woods like Virginia Cedarwood as base notes.
Recommended applications: Diffuse, topical application using safe dilution ratios, steam inhalation, inhaler.

A couple of months ago, our good friend, Lola King completed her final inventory for Be Kind Botanicals. It was both a blessing and bittersweet. She worked for close to a decade to provide the best oils she could find, even if it meant processing the plant material herself and having a distiller obtain it through distillation. When Marge heard the news of her closing Be Kind Botanicals, she jumped at the opportunity to snag some of her finest inventory before it was gone for good. We are delighted to present to you our “Be Kind” Collection, so that you can experience what Lola and Marge find to be some of the most exquisite offerings of essential oils from around the globe… New Zealand Lavender may be the top of the list. These are in limited supply and will only be sold in retail sizes.
