This shrub, of the same genus as the Tea tree, originated in New Caledonia. It was later planted in Australia and Madagascar. Its bark is resistant to forest fires and its branches end in pretty flowers with numerous yellow stamens. Its long leaves, when crumpled, give off a fresh green smell, which evokes the fragrance of the Eucalyptus and is found in its essential oil.

Its action is reputed in the case of mycosis such as candida albicans. Niaouli essential oil is also a venous decongestant, which can be found in many recipes for external use targeting poor venous return, heavy legs and varicose veins. It is frequently associated with cypress. It offers an excellent compatibility with the skin, which makes it a quality skin tonic.
