The verve and veracity of this Eucalyptus variety, Kochii, is the essence of clean. A soft-velvet green scent along with a commanding-camphorous core and a hint of lively mint flows from its abundant concentration of cineole, a unique plant compound that Eucalyptus is famous for. Copious cineole makes this Eucalyptus the premier for potency. Yet, its aroma is delightfully well-rounded, slightly sweet, and gently glides its vivid molecules across airways and expanded chests.
The super-sustainable Kochii tree produces a profusion of beneficial oil distilled from its organic waxy blue leaves and green branchlets. The activating essence is a breath of fresh air!

Eucalyptus Kochii is a 100% Australian Eucalyptus oil. The Kochii tree thrives in the hot and dry southwestern region surrounding Perth. In the late 19th century, the Australian government cleared the existing ecosystem in that area to create more land for wheat farming. As a result, ocean water started to seep through the ground, creating salinized soil issues that made the land unfarmable. To stop the salt spread, the farmers revegetated 25,000 to 30,000 acres with salt-resistant Eucalyptus Kochii trees. Those trees are now mature and are considered a sustainable crop for creating this steadfast and soothing variety of Eucalyptus essential oil.
Eucalyptus Kochii trees are vigorous growers, and every year some of the maturing trees are coppiced and the stump is left to send out new shoots, which encourages healthy, strong regrowth. Distillers collect the leaves and small branches and steam them to create our clarifying Kochii essence. The trunk and larger branches are burned for fuel during the distillation and the byproduct, biochar, is used to rehabilitate soil.
