Nerolina trees naturally occur in the swampy lowlands of New South Wales, Queensland and the Northern Territory.

It grows to 20 metres in the wild and is found inhabiting areas in and around swamps.

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.

Traditional Usage

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.

  3. Loving the very Australian, distinct aromas of these oils. It’s a little soon to give testimonials on therapeutic effect, but the service was excellent and my order very well packaged.
