In aromatherapy Niaouli oil can be used similarly to Cajuput or Tea-tree, except that it is not quite as powerfully antimicrobial or antifungal, but instead, acts more gently on the skin and can even be used on mucous membranes. It is particularly indicated for conditions of the upper respiratory tract, sinusitis, sore throat, bronchitis, and catarrh. In dilution it is excellent for treating cuts, ulcers and burns. It can be applied to pimples, psoriasis and herpes and in aromatherapy skin care it is helpful for oily and inflamed skin conditions and insect bites. It is also used for rheumatic aches and muscle pains. Niaouli and its cousins are all effective in protecting the skin against burns from radiotherapy.MagicalLike Cajuput or Tea Tree, Niaouli can be used for purification of ritual spaces or objects. It is a good healing oil and can be used in healing rituals. It offers protection and clears out negative energies that 'clog up' the physical and mental bodies. It is also great for aura cleansing.
