Niaouli is a small tree with papery bark. The oil is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of this species. Niaouli is fresh and camphoraceous. Being antiseptic and healing, it is useful for boils and cuts and is well-suited to skin care applications on account of its being non-irritant. Its expectorant properties make it well indicated for respiratory tract infections. .

Our strict ingredient policy means that you can always shop according to your values. Every item on FtN is checked to be better for the environment, socially responsible, good for you and free from toxic ingredients.

Directions for Use
Essential oils are the highly concentrated active Ingredients of plants. They should always be diluted in a base before use and should not be taken internally without professional recommendation.

  • Baths: Add 5 – 10 drops of essential oil(s) to a warm run bath. If skin is sensitive, blend the essential oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil first. Close the door so the vapours don’t escape. Soak for at least 10 minutes relaxing and breathing deeply. For added moisturising dilute the oils in 10ml of carrier before adding to the bath.
  • Massage: add 5 – 6 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil. Mix thoroughly and apply liberally to the skin.
  • Inhalations: Add 4 - 5 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head, close your eyes and lean over the bowl. Inhale the vapour for a few minutes.
  • Burners and Diffusers: Fill the bowl of the burner/vaporiser with water and then add 3 – 6 drops of essential oil. Light the candle and the oil will evaporate as the water heats up. Do not let the bowl dry out.

Caring for Your Essential Oils
SOil essential oils and carrier oils are living products that are vulnerable to heat, moisture, air and light. It is best to store them in a cool, dark place with the lids well sealed. If your fridge is the only cool place around, allow the oils to reach a cool room temperature before use (around 20 degrees C).

Love this range. Smell like a earthy mint.
Comes through subtle

I agree with another review that it kind of smells like an earthy mint. I like the smell on its own and use it in a mixture to clean my yoga mat.

Smells good, and works like a bomb. Really opens the chest and helps with wheezing. Gives one a peaceful sleep. Smell doesn't last very long... Possibly 2hrs max

A welcome addition to my first aid kit. Thankfully, I haven't needed to use it yet, but it gives me peace of mind that it is there when next I might need it. All Soil essential oils are great quality, so the rating is based on my experience with the brand in general.

Great Aroma.
05/08/2019, By MICHELLE

Soil's essential oils are always a winner.
12/06/2018, By Ayesha
Fantastic for respiratory problems. Assisted with relief of blocked nose, put some on my pillow at night while battling a cold. Mixed some with peppermint and body butter to rub on face and keep nose and lips moisturized post sneezing. Milder than eucalyptus in smell, works just as well maybe even better.
30/05/2018, By Melani
Such a great product and very well priced
28/12/2017, By Colleen
It perfect for stuffy noses.
26/09/2017, By Colleen
I love this product, it works so well for chest colds and flu, my daughter likes to put a drop or two on her pillow at night, as she says that it helps her to breath better at night.

31/08/2017, By Sanet
I find eucalyptus oil a bit overwhelming for respiratory use, so I use this instead. It's strong enough to clear the passages, but not so strong that it knocks your breath away. It's also in the same family as tea tree oil, so it can also be used for treating breakouts, cuts, or bites.
05/08/2017, By Lor
Love the scent and very concentrated!
17/07/2017, By Susan
I add a few drops of this oil in the bathtub from time to time. It is very relaxing and help clears my sinuses. However I feel the smell is a bit overpowering so I add a few drops of Lemongrass oil as well. Wonderful combination!
19/05/2014, By Beulah
Love the fresh camphorous smell of this one. I use it for mostly for chesty coughs.
