Extraction and Farming Method
Nerolina essential oil is extracted through steam distillation of the leaves and green branchlets. It is grown in plantations in both northern New South Wales and Queensland with limited wild harvesting of these trees for essential oil production.
Fresh leaves from the tree were wrapped around affected areas of the body.
Early European Usage
These trees were occasionally wild harvested for their value as an essential oil. Apiarists also take advantage of the prolific flowering of the Nerolina and locate their hives close to the trees to aid their honey production.
Present Day Usage
Nerolina essential oil has been used scenting a room, for some it has a fruity note, which is fresh and appealing. The essential oil can be used in washing products, helping to relieve blankets from smelly infestations. The flowers also provide an important source of nectar for commercial honey bees.
