I feel cleansed !

First time trying which I leave in my bathroom wide open … it smells fresh… and I put a drop of it on my clothing sleeve when I go out. Better than chemical perfume anytime!

Good product

A little more subtle than olbas or eucalyptus or tea tree. Has a fresher, lighter, fragrance but is still good for opening up the airways. Ideal for winter!

Beautiful oil

As with all Neals Yard oils this is just perfect

Fresh and invigorating

I love this organic niaouli oil. It has a very fresh and invigorating scent which I use for myself and massage clients in need of a little rejuvenation and uplifting. A couple of drops blended with grapeseed oil is especially great for this time of year when a lot of people are a bit rundown and congested.


Useful antibacterial oil to keep in the first aid box for bites and stings. Doesn’t have an overpowering smell like tea tree oil
