Rosalina Essential Oil – Melaleuca ericifolia – commonly known as the Swamp Paperbark Tree is native to New South Wales, Queensland and the Basse Straight islands.
Heritage Oils works with the distillers on Flinders Island to provide you with the best Rosalina Essential Oil of single origin. The trees grow on the pristine slopes and in the clean fresh unpolluted air of Flinders Island located in Bass Straight on the south eastern corner of Australia – relatively free from urban and agricultural pollution and in the path of the cold strong winds coming from the Southern Ocean.
Rosalina is a very adaptable tree, lending itself to populations across southern Australia. Environmental conditions like soil types and climate will affect the components of its oil with distillations on the mainland.
