ABOUT THE PLANT
Also known as 'Swamp Paperbark', a rapidly-growing cousin of the Tea tree, the Rosalina tree reaches a short height of just 9 meters and is native to costal areas of Australia.
ABOUT THE OIL
This Rosalina oil is steam distilled from the leaves of trees naturally grown in Australia.
This Rosalina oil has top notes of mint, lemon and other citrus fruit, middle notes of camphor and eucalyptus with undertones of light and mildly sweet wildflower honey.
Rosalina oil has been used by the aboriginal tribes of Australia for its therapeutic properties. It contains a significant quantity of linalool (also found in Lavender and Tea Tree essential oil). Linalool is known for its soothing and calming effects. Rosalina oil is fairly new in the world of aromatherapy and has been noted as a good replacement, both therapeutically and aromatically, for rosewood oil, which has a negative environmental impact on South American rainforests.
