Kanuka is a monoterpene-dominant member of the Kunzea genus. It has a smooth, mellow bouquet that is touched ever-so-slightly by the familiar scent of 1,8 cineole with slightly sweet, woody undertones that become more apparent on the dry-down. It is reminiscent of manuka oil, though it has a somewhat brighter and more traditionally medicinal aroma upon first impressions.
The oil appears to be useful for topical needs that require a soothing touch and may provide a fresh and cleansing note to blends intended to be diffused for wellness. The aroma of this oil would pair quite nicely with brighter citruses such as lemon and even lime with more deeply developed, woody notes serving as the perfect base to anchor kanuka’s more ephemeral quality.
