Guide - Niaouli EO
Native to the Moluccas and currently very present throughout the Indonesian archipelago, Malaysia and Australia, Niaouli prefers hot and humid areas.
It has very tapered evergreen leaves that give off a powerful scent when crumpled. Its bark, made up of 10 to 20 superposed layers, is very thick and fire-resistant. Its flowers are long, pointed and of a pale yellow in colour. Appreciated by bees, they give an excellent honey.
The Kanaks, people of New Caledonia, are used to using it as a medical remedy but also for the construction of their huts, thus benefiting from the resistance of its bark.
The inhabitants of the South Pacific and the aborigines of Australia already used it in their traditional medicine to treat bronchial tubes, urinary tract and to activate the healing of the skin.
