One of my favorite oils. Please bring it back!
Cant wait to use my kunzea
Does anyone know other oils Kunzea pairs well with than those listed? I want to use it in a pain blend but don’t love the smell and need to mask it. I see pines are commonly used, what does everyone think about Kunzea, Pine Scots, and Lemongrass? Any other recipes would be greatly appreciated!
I love combining it with either Lavender and Cedarwood atlas or virginia, or, all three. I often only use a drop in 2 oz carrier. HTH!
thanks for the recommendation. time to add kunzea onto my wish list!
I can’t wait to try this!
We hope you love it, Dawn!
This sounds interesting! Adding it to my list of oils that I “need”! 🙂
I bought some of the Kunzea last week along with a 4oz bottle of the Aloe Vera Jelly. I know the dilution amount (5%), but I don’t know how much Aloe Vera Jelly the oil goes into and I cannot find the answer anywhere. Can anyone help?
Are you talking about the recipe on the post? If so, you’d use 10ml of Aloe Jelly or 2 teaspoons.
I love all the Information about the new oils. it really makes me want to try them
We are glad you enjoy these posts! 🙂
I hadn’t heard of this oil until now. Definitely looking for a good combo for joint pain. Bookmarked this to try in the future.
I have not heard of this oil. Unable to locate your “product information sheet”…can you please send to my email?
I’ve never heard of this oil until now. Would this help with a pinched nerve?
Kunzea is one of my favorite oils. I love kunzea, black pepper, marjoram, fragonia.
What is the purpose of the sweet orange in the above blend? Scent? Uplifting?
What can be used in place of pine scots? I have Douglas fir and silver fir. Would either of those work?
Can any evergreen oil be substituted for Pine Scots? I have Pine and Douglas Fir but not Pine Scots.
I use kunzea along with Lavendin, Lemon Eucalyptus 2drops each as the base of my insect repellent … then, I add either lemongrass and ylang-ylang or geranium and citronella. Kunzea is also called tic bush.
Thanks for this blog post. Has given me a few extra ideas for using this Oil. Can’t wait to try the post workout blend!
