The Source of doTERRA’s Niaouli Essential Oil

Niaouli essential oil is derived from the long leaves of the large, evergreen Niaouli tree.  Decorated with yellow-tinted flowers that flourish in tight spikes at the ends of the branches, and a flakey paper bark trunk, the Niaouli tree is found throughout Asia, Australia, New Caledonia and Madagascar.

In one of doTERRA’s Co-Impact Sourcing® locations, Niaouli leaves are harvested by some of the hard working natives of Madagascar to produce doTERRA’s potent Niaouli essential oil.

At present, Niaouli is only available from doTERRA Australia during Limited Time Offers (most recently as Product of the Month for April 2020) and is not a part of their everyday range of essential oils. 

It is available in a 15ml bottle with dripolator for everyday use.   Niaouli essential oil can be used aromatically, or topically with a carrier oil. It blends well with Eucalyptus, Bergamot and Lavender.
