Niaouli is a medium-sized tree that commonly grows between 8-12 meters high. Its botanical name is combined with two Latin words, "qinque" and "nervia", and refers to the presence of five longitudinal veins in each leaf. The stem of Niaouli tree is light in color with large, papery layers that grow roughly around the trunk. It has thin, dark green leaves and off-white flowers that grow in thick spikes. Niaouli essential oil is sometimes confused with Cajeput essential oil (Melaleuca leucadendron). However, these oils are significantly different in terms of composition, scent and properties and should be easily distinguishable.

Unlike Cajeput, Niaouli essential oil does not irritate the skin when properly diluted. In fact, it is safe to use as a gargle, massage oil and even a vaginal douche. Niaouli essential oil is also perfect for treating respiratory tract infections. It can be used as a chest rub or as a steam inhalant.

Niaouli essential oil is also an excellent treatment for cystitis and other urinary infections for its antiseptic properties. It is a popular antiseptic in French hospitals, particularly in the obstetrics and gynecology departments. Due to its stimulating effect, it is best to avoid the use of Niaouli oil late at night, except when combined with sedative and relaxing oils such as Lavender.

Niaouli has a strong, hot scent reminiscent of camphor. It has sweet and fresh top notes complemented by eucalyptus-like undertones.

The scent of Niaouli oil has a stimulating effect that helps sharpen the mind. Its powerful aroma aids meditation and increases mental alertness and concentration.
