Natural cleaning: Kanuka oil has potential antibacterial and antifungal properties, making it an ingredient for natural cleaning solutions. It can be added to homemade cleaning products to help disinfect surfaces and eliminate unwanted odours.

Air freshener: The pleasant and refreshing scent of kanuka essential oil can be used to create natural air fresheners. It can be added to diffusers, potpourri, or even homemade linen sprays to infuse spaces with a soothing aroma.
