History

With Tea Tree being native to the region, it was reputedly used by the indigenous inhabitants as healing plants for a number of skin conditions for many years prior. Many studies have shown Tea Tree oil used in traditional herbal medicine as a plausible treatment for “small superficial wounds, insect bites and small boils” as well as acne, nail fungus or athlete’s foot. It is said that the Tea Tree oil commercial industry originated in the 1920’s with the antiseptic properties becoming a shining benefit.

Harvesting


Sitting on hills overlooking the Pacific Ocean with remnant rainforest and plateau fields of rich red volcanic soil, the farm is a beautiful mix of coastal floodplain, paperbark forest and fields with their rich, dark brown loamy peat soils. The farm is alive with everything from lady beetles, spiders, hundreds of species of birds, water dragons, lizards, wallabies, and snakes. They aim to achieve balance between wildlife nature reserves and plantations, which in turns then delivers nutrient rich products from the farm. The farm is owned and operated by 2 families – doing much of the work themselves and employing locals for the balance of farm work and specialist tasks.

Distillation


Rose essential oil is extracted from rose petals and its scent is renowned for soothing emotions, headaches and balancing hormones. Rose is known for strengthening the heart in periods of high stress, grief, and depression. Use in a warm bath or apply directly on the skin to help with mood swings, hormones and emotions.

Community & Environment


The farm runs an extensive Quality Management System that covers all aspects of farming, from the seed selected for plantations, soil inputs and measuring, plant operation and maintenance, through to the quality of the finished oil.

It is critical to them the farming practice and land management is not only sustainable but improves the land during their care.
