Kunzea is recognised by the TGA for external use as a treatment for nervous tension, stress and anxiety. It is also recognised to offer the temporary relief of pain associated with arthritis and for the relief of muscular, tendon and joint aches and pains. This oil may offer temporary relief for symptoms of influenza. This oil may be beneficial in relieving the pain and inflammation of insect bites, such as from mosquitoes and spiders, recurring shingles and migraine headaches. This oil is reported to have combined anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties which are known to control reoccurring tinea or athletes’ foot and are extremely beneficial in the treatment of chilblains. Kunzea oil, both by itself and when combined with Lavender oil, may aid in the treatment of small wounds and minor burns. It is well tolerated on the skin, even with undiluted use.
