Welcoming the Miraculous Blend in a Single Essential Oil, Kunzea

This week, I took a break from the topics on hormonal health and my review on phototoxicity and ingestion to share some of my own research on an amazing essential oil I just learned about!

Plus, I just couldn’t contain my excitement…

 

Introducing the Koolest Single Oil: Kunzea

I started with my favorite: the newest single essential oil added to the product line, Kunzea essential oil. In Part I, reviewed the chemical constituents found in this uplifting, skin supporting, respiratory soothing, and muscle relieving essential oil sourced from Australia.

Due to its molecular makeup Kunzea is a “magical, miracle of nature.”  Although it is a single oil, it is more characteristic of a blend because it contains constituents of some of the most popular, therapeutic essential oils.

In Part II, I went into the details of its chemical makeup and why this makes it so miraculous. These include:

  • a-Pinene
  • 1,8-Cineole
  • Viridiflorol
  • Globulol
  • Bicyclogermacrene
  • a-Terpineol

This unusual constituent makeup of Kunzea was verified from a neutral source in the article, “A Contemporary Introduction to Essential Oils: Chemistry, Bioactivity and Prospects for Australian Agriculture.”

 

What’s in Your Bottle of Kunzea Essential Oil?

It is important to know the plant species, chemotype, and its quality assurance in order to be assured of the constituents found in your essential oil bottle. Below is the list of the compounds form one company as an example:

  • Alpha pinene is a compound most often associated with the pine species. It is a beneficial phytoncide and is also found in sacred frankincense oil.
  • 1-8 cineol is often equated with eucalyptus oils. It is to supportive for respiratory and lung health.
  • Viridilfloral is a  sesquiterpene often found in niaouli  and peppermint. These compounds have immune and neurological supporting properties.
  • Bicylogeramacrene is another sesquiterpene often found in microbe-inhibiting oils of oregano and hyssop.

This exquisite profile of kunzea is a one-of-a-kind in its mixture of some of the most well-studied compounds in relatively higher percentages than found in several beloved essential oils.

Although I’ve drilled home to you that although the action of an essential oil cannot be based on its constituents alone, we can deduct how these compounds will behave together in the body and synergize for even more harmonious effects. This is especially true for this oil.

When I experienced Kunzea essential oil, I literally had tears in my eyes and my heart filled with a very emotional and tender response. It  had the effect on me most often associated with emotional blends, which I found very interesting from a single oil.

Next week, we will learn more about what my research revealed regarding Kunzea essential oil. I’ll also review some of the benefits of this month’s promotions that many will be getting, thanks to their convention purchases adding up to these freebies!
