Aroma

A clean, crisp scent with lingering aromatic woody tones, NLI immediately invokes the smell of the Aussie bush on a clear summers day.

Hand harvested in sustainable forests in Far North Queensland by Rare Earth Oils we distil the leaves with-in hours of picking, ensuring the purest, highest-grade organic essential oil. Each species of Eucalyptus, and there are hundreds, contain unique levels of the different botanical oils that create the aromatic signature of individual species.

Eucalyptus Oil is probably best known for its ability to loosen and expel mucus. When the respiratory tract has a cough or cold the nasal, bronchia’s and lungs become constricted, making breathing more difficult. Research does indicate that inhalations of Eucalyptus Oil can markedly improve breathing and function. Because of its antibacterial, antiviral nature it may also reduce the initial and secondary infections. Some research indicates it may boost our body’s production of white blood cells to fight an infection. Why not be pro-active in your protection from viral infections. You can use our snuffler when out and about as protection, an aroma diffuser at home to reduce the risk of infection, or our chest rub and it will go to work while you sleep.
