Mulching at the Essentially Australia plantation

About Us

Essentially Australia was created by Greg Trevena in 2012. After creating and developing 2 previous businesses, (‘Rainforest Foods,’ created in 1998 and sold in 2007 and ‘Refreshed Lemon Myrtle’ and ‘Refreshed Lemon Myrtle USA’, created in 2000 and sold in 2009)

Greg saw a clear opportunity to create a concept of an essential oil business which specialises just in Australian essential oils.

At present Essentially Australia has 33 different Australian native essential oils and 2 native Australian carrier oils on offer. This is  largest range of Australian essential and carrier oils offered by any essential oil company.

Essentially Australia operates 2 plantations in the moist, rich, red volcanic hinterland of Byron Bay. We also support a small range of passionate and committed essential oil farmers and harvesters in other parts of Australia.

We plan to continue to bring out new Australian essential oils grown from within our and outside of our plantations.
