Wherever possible we try to limit our impact on the environment with our packing choices.
Some simple examples are that we clean, return and re-use bulk containers for all of our ingredients, and we keep and re-use brown paper and other packing for our stockist orders.
For our small retail orders we use 100% biodegradable/compostable 'packing peanuts' to protect products on their journey. These break down very quickly. We encourage you to re-use them where you can; add them to your compost; or simply put them in your garden and they will break down in no time!
100% biodegradable 'packing peanuts' break down very quickly. They are made from waste plant starch.
There are more and more Kunzea products appearing on the market. So why choose our Kunzea Tasmania products?
The Kunzea oil that we use in all of our products comes from a property in the beautiful North East of the Tasmanian main island.
This grower was the pioneer of Kunzea oil production; uncovering its incredible therapeutic properties and working to establish the foundation of this rapidly growing industry.
The native Kunzea Ambigua shrubs on this property are organically and wild grown – they’re not watered, sprayed or fertilised. They are as natural as you can get!
The Kunzea shrubs are not over-harvested, to ensure the oil is of the highest quality.
The oil we use is distilled on farm and each batch tested by the university to analyse its composition and ensure it meets all safety and quality parameters.
The most recent harvest was in December 2020 and we are now using this new batch of oil in all of our products.
Using the highest quality, original, TGA listed Kunzea oil is very important to us. Not all Kunzea oil is the same!
St Johns Foot Clinic (Legana and Launceston) this month mark one year of stocking our Kunzea Tasmania products!
This busy podiatry practice uses our products during some of their treatments, as well as stocking them for patients to use at home.
They've had great feedback and need to regularly restock as our Kunzea products are very popular at their clinics!
One of their primary podiatrists Jane has said, "Kunzea is a great natural product that I recommend to many of my patients who experience variations of musculoskeletal pain. The range of applications are wonderful for different skin types and those with mobility issues."
A big thank you to St Johns Foot Clinic for supporting Kunzea Tasmania, and using and promoting our natural, Tassie made products over the last year.
See our stockists page for more details.
We're often asked how to use 100% Kunzea oil. Here are just a few of our tips...

We are Kacey and Michael, owners of Kunzea Tasmania.
We started a small market business in October 2018 Thera-Ease Tasmania - selling medical grade, instant, reusable heat packs. Talking to customers we quickly realised the great need for people to access a range of natural products that provide relief. We wanted to find something with a Tasmanian focus to add to our product range.
In early 2019 we started developing our Tasmanian bath flakes, and then throughout the year we created, tested and fine-tuned the rest of our original Kunzea Tasmania products. We got feedback from LOTS of people along the way, and proudly launched the Kunzea products online and at the markets at the end of that year (2019).
We've been very humbled by the amazing feedback we've had so far. We feel really excited to be offering natural, Tasmanian made products. Like the heat packs, we use our Kunzea products to address our own issues every day!
It's fantastic for us to hear how our Kunzea Tasmania products are helping. Of course there is the feedback through our website reviews, but we also have lots of conversations with customers from around the country! Our stockist have also provided excellent feedback and stories of clients that are using our products. A great measure of success for us, is that many customers are regularly returning to buy more.
We thank everyone so much for supporting our small Tasmanian business. Quality products and great customer service are very important to us. Please contact us with any questions, any time.
