Kunzea ambigua (Tasmania)
Also known as Australian Southern Spring flower or Tick Bush and found growing in North East Tasmania or South East mainland Australia, Kunzea essential oil contains 5 sesquiterpine (or C15) compounds that all have strong anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore it can be an excellent addition to any joint or muscle treatment. These anti-inflammatory qualities, combined with it’s anti-infectious properties can also make Kunzea essential oil a good treatment for insect bites.
These magical properties of the Kunzea ambigua plant were discovered when a farmer in Tazmania called John Hood noticed that where it was growing by a wire fence, there was no rust on the steel and decided to investigate!
We use high percentages of kunzea in our Midgie Magic, Achy Breaky, Healing Cream, and also Pestoff spray & concentrate.
