Kunzea ambigua ~ The Aromatic Treasure from Tasmania

Common Name: Tick bush
Family: Myrtaceae

Kunzea ambigua is a tall spreading shrub 2- 4m high. It is sometimes confused with Tea Tree (Leptospermum), but is distinguished by the ‘fluffy’ appearance of the flowers, caused by numerous long stamens. It is fairly common in heaths and woodlands on sandstone.

The leaves are tiny, 5-12mm by 1-2mm, crowded on short lateral branches and covered in oil dots.

The white flowers have 5 petals which are almost hidden by the many longer stamens when the flower is open. They are very attractive to butterflies and several kinds of pollinating flies. Flowering season: October to December.

This Tasmanian essential oil developed by John Hood in the 1990’s is recognized by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Act as an external treatment for ear, nose and throat inflammations and infections; for common respiratory ailments; to reduce pain, for muscular and joint conditions; and for the relief of minor conditions of anxiety and depression. Alleviates skin conditions such as eczema and rashes, in people, as well as pets.
