  • 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!

    1. 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!

  • 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?

  • I have not heard of this oil. Unable to locate your “product information sheet”…can you please send to my email?
    Thank you?

  • 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?

  • 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.
