Niaouli is known for its immune stimulating properties as well as its effect on the respiratory system. It contains anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, decongestant, and expectorant qualities. In addition, it has a generally strengthening effect on the body. Niaouli essential oil is generally considered to be safe but may cause skin irritation.
Niaouli essential oil (also known as MQV) is, according to Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt, the most important anti-allergenic essential oil in aromatherapy.
Niaouli is a powerful antibacterial and antiseptic, thus a valuable addition to treatments for the skin and gums. Niaouli is especially appropriate to use for heading off symptoms of the flu.
