FROM FARM TO BOTTLE
Hand-poured in Singapore.
Our Eucalyptus Lemon Essential Oil is organically-grown and steam-distilled from the waxy leaves of trees grown in Australia. In the ’90s, a group of wheat farmers in Western Australia found a sustainable solution to save their farmland’s ecology. They were experiencing salinity issues in the soil and started planting eucalyptus trees in an intercropping method amongst the rows of wheat. The deep roots of the eucalyptus pushed the water table down, decreasing the salinity in the soil. These eucalyptus plantings are now providing us with a pure and sustainable supply of Australian eucalyptus oil. Here, harvesting is done by cutting the tree to just above its root collar, preserving the roots which then shoot new, fresh growth. This restarts the production cycle without soil disturbance, while also retaining all that sequestered carbon in the soil and root structure. This farm also has a zero fossil fuels policy and uses renewable electricity across all their operations.

I use this in my bug spray and diffuse it in the garden when we are sitting outside. I sometime add a few drops of lemongrass which smells amazing.
