Natural Occurrence in Australia
Blue Mallee occurs in 2 distinct areas, one is near Bendigo, Victoria, extensive stands are found around the West Wyalong region, 400 kilometres west of Sydney, in what is semi arid, Mallee and woodland country.
Mallee trees, have a massive and extensive root ball system, just under the surface of the soil, this acts as a defensive system to fire and also acts a reservoir for moisture and nutrients for the tree, in what is very low nutrient soil system.
Mallee trees are typically shorter trees, Blue Mallee grows to around 8 metres.
The tree tends to flower in autumn and early winter. Mallee trees have multiple stems, some suggest the tree is upside down in the ground.
Eucalyptus Blue Mallee Essential Oil Characteristics

Research was championed by pre-eminent Australian botanist Ferdinand Von Mueller for many decades from the 1850’s. It was further promoted and developed by a number of Australian pharmacists, winning many awards in Australia and London in the late 1800’s. Australian Eucalyptus had been born.
Extraction and Farming Method
Blue Mallee essential oil is extracted via steam distillation of the leaves and green branchlets. Eucalyptus Blue Mallee is sustainably wild harvested by Australian farmers in central New South Wales, plantation trees have also been established, in these regions. The trees respond well to harvesting.

History –Blue Mallee Eucalyptus
Indigenous people made use of this oil for cuts by wrapping the leaves around the wound, the leaves were also boiled or smoked on a fire and the oil vapours inhaled for treating colds and flus.
Early European Usage
Settlers found the root ball an excellent source of long burning firewood, sadly a lot of Mallee woodland and countryside was cleared, initially by man and bullock teams, later they were bulldozed by tractor and a very large, strong chain, which made way for wheat, barley and sheep and a bit of soil erosion.
Present Day Usage
Now the trees are largely left intact and some areas around West Wyalong region are sustainably harvesting the tree for its essential oil content. We only source Australian grown and harvested Eucalyptus Blue Mallee essential oil.
