Day in the life of a Kunzea Lover!

Kaylin Goh | 15 September

Here at Zea, we pretty much eat, breathe and sleep Kunzea. That’s why we are so excited to be celebrating the blossoming of the Kunzea plant this Spring. 

The Kunzea ambigua plant really is one of the most versatile plants. Brimming with various medicinal properties, Kunzea can be used to promote health and vitality in different parts of your body. From the moment you wake up, to the moment your head hits the pillow - Zea’s Kunzea-infused range has a product that will assist in making your daily life just that little bit better.  In this blog, we wanted to take you through a standard day in the life, and showcase how you can incorporate our Kunzea products into the different aspects of your daily routine.

Morning Routine

Start the morning right by putting a handful of the Kunzea Bath Salts into a small dish in your shower, and using them as a shower steamer. Once dry, apply the Original Kunzea Cream as a hand and body moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated and healthy for the day ahead.


Indulge yourself with the 100% pure and delightfully sweet taste of our Kunzea Honey, harvested straight from the wilderness. Drizzle it over crumpets, spread it on toast, stir it into your porridge or eat it straight off the spoon. 

Alternatively, you can treat yourself to some delicious scrambled free range eggs, seasoned  with our Native Blend Pink Lake Salt that is infused with a blend of Kunzea, pepperleaf and native thyme. A cooking tip from the Kunzea Kitchen - season your eggs while they’re cooking as opposed to once they’re ready. The gourmet seasoning brings out the natural flavour of the eggs. 


Before you head out for the day, don’t forget to pack your Kunzea Roll On Liniment or Kunzea Muscle Balm with you to use for soothing areas of discomfort throughout the day. They’re perfect for on-the-go application to the back, neck and body.


Heading to the gym after work? Our MAGZEA™ Sports Cooling Spray is perfect for a  pre- and post-workout relief after a tough and sweaty session at the gym! This spray combines magnesium and Kunzea to provide long-lasting relief for muscle strains, sprains and muscle soreness.

Afternoon tea

Feeling like an afternoon treat? Enjoy a Cheese Board or Antipasto platter alongside our 100% Raw Honeycomb. Enjoy eating its wax too because if you didn’t know already - it’s edible and delicious! And if you feel like trying something new, try making a calming aromatic tea with the Dried Kunzea Leaves.

Self Care

Unwind and let any tension from the day soak away, by adding a handful of MAGZEA Sports Recovery Bath Salts to a bath and let the powers of magnesium revive sore and tired muscles. Diffuse the refreshing aroma of Kunzea Essential Oil in the air, to be transported away from the everyday and into the fresh air of nature. 


Make a delicious meal with the Kunzea Honey as a natural sweetener and Dried Kunzea Leaf as a Native Herb - one of our personal favourites is the Kunzea Honey Roasted Carrots. Drizzle the honey over the carrots for the ultimate vegetable accompaniment dish!

Night Routine

You may like to try diffusing or even quickly sniffing our Breathe Easy Lifestyle Blend to help soothe and clear the airways. The essential oil blend combines Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Scotch Pine and Kunzea to assist in promoting easy breathing and restful sleep.

Body Care

Before you go to sleep, apply the Kunzea Pain Relief Cream to the body to relieve any aches and pains and ensure a good night’s sleep. Additionally, you can also use it as an all-body moisturiser, and keep your body hydrated throughout the night.

If you have any pain points, it is great practice to apply 2-3 drops of the Kunzea Concentrated Massage Oil into the source of the discomfort and then follow up with the cream.


As you can see, every aspect of your life can be enhanced by the powers of Kunzea. From smell to taste to touch, Kunzea has the incredible ability to stimulate all five senses and improve your overall health and wellbeing. So what are you waiting for? Get shopping for all things Kunzea here!
