Australian Essential Oils are known for their purity, unique, distinctive aromas and wellness benefits. so, why use Australian essential oils?
For those who are not quite familiar with our Australian Essential Oils, and wish to learn more about their unique qualities, we have drawn a few comparisons with traditional essential oils:
Australian Sandalwood versus Indian Sandalwood
One of the most prestigious essential oils of Australia is Australian Sandalwood. It is sustainably sourced by indigenous Australians, who have identified the best Sandalwood to harvest.
Our Australian Sandalwood (Santalum spiactum) essential oil is sweeter and far more attractive than Indian Sandalwood (Santalum album). Australian Sandalwood has many aromatic benefits including great to meditate with relax and unwind. It is renowned as an antiseptic oil and is good for teenage skin blemishes.
Anise Myrtle versus Aniseed
One of our favourite essential oils of Australia, Anise Myrtle, has a superior and fresher licorice aroma compared to traditional Aniseed essential oils.
Traditional aniseed comes from the 1 metre shrub, Pimpinella anisum. Anise Myrtle (Syzygium anisata) grows to a height of 40 metres, in the temperate rainforests of mid north New South Wales.
Lemon Myrtle versus Lemongrass
Of all of the Australian essential oils, perhaps Lemon Myrtle has had the fastest rise in popularity in the last 15 years. Lemon Myrtle is far more uplifting and pleasant than traditional Lemongrass (Cymbogon citratus). It also contains around 95% Citral compared to only 70% in Lemongrass.
Rosalina (Lavender Tea Tree) versus Lavender
Both oils are helpful for rest and relaxation; both encourage peacefulness. However, Rosalina has some very pleasant and fresh elements, which are great in making rooms feel fresher. Rosalina provides an opportunity to move away from traditional Lavender, and is one of the finest essential oils of Australia.
Lemon Ironbark versus Lemon
Lemon Ironbark is a beautiful, smooth, pleasant Australian essential oil. It is highly aromatic and wonderful to enjoy. Lemon Ironbark is a tall Eucalyptus tree of far north Queensland that is very high in Limonene, which is a known antiviral.
Fragonia versus perfumes
There are many new Australian essential oils and Fragonia essential oil is one of the newest and most recently discovered during the last decade. It is exclusive to one farm in Australia and grown nowhere else in the world. It has a very unique aroma, lending it great aromatic appeal.
