Niaouli leaf oil

Melaleuca Quinquenervia
(Melaleuca viridiflora)

Commonly known as Niaouli, Melaleuca Quinquenervia supports and stimulates healthy-looking skin with stronger properties than Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia) essential oil.

A brew from the bruised leaves of Melaleuca quinquenervia was used by Aboriginal people in Australia for colds, headaches, and other sicknesses.

Medicinal Properties: Male hormone-like, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and antiparasitic (amoeba and parasites in the blood), vasodilating, skin penetration enhancer (hormones)

Uses: Hypertension, urinary tract/bladder infections, respiratory/sinus infections, allergies

And here is where I apologize. This post doesn’t feel complete. Full disclaimer? I’m releasing it anyway because it is the most honest thing I can do.

I started investigating this oil as part of a blend, not because I have personally used it myself. The blend, yes. The individual oil, no.

I have scoured the research on this, and it just happens that there isn’t a whole lot of studies out there. Sometimes that happens with herbal medicine and folklore. Studies weren’t done because the effectiveness was passed down through generations. I suspect that is the case with this oil.

Unfortunately, what research I did find seemed to confuse this oil with Melaleuca alternifolia, Tea Tree Oil. I would assume that the effects are similar since this is described as a stronger Tea Tree Oil, but I can not present them here as fact.

If you come across any new studies in your own research, please link them in the comments below and I will certainly update this post.

Until then, I’m afraid both the title and the closing are a bit misleading because we don’t seem to have dug very deep. Please check out some of the other Digging Deeper series where we have been able to unearth quite a bit more information.


Thank you for digging deeper into Niaouli with me. I am very passionate about herbs, oils, and the education of their uses.

Please remember that essential oils are very concentrated products and should never be ingested unless specifically labeled for such use.
