The only place where Eucalyptus kochii has ever been known to grow well under cultivation, is in the farmland in its natural range. A testament to its unique sustainability, the seeds collected from the remnant trees of Eucalyptus kochii are planted back into their farmland, where they thrive in the very hot summers known far and wide in this Western Australian landscape. Only the trees that have been planted are harvested for oil production.
Their valuable oil is extracted by steaming the leaves from trees planted on farms, using water that is continually recycled throughout the production process and using processed leaves to fire the boiler. Along with the continuous growth of the lignotuber and root system underground, the production process has a negative carbon footprint.
After distillation, the Kochii Eucalyptus Oil is simply allowed to settle until it is bottled.
As the trees are harvested periodically for their oil, their ability to sprout from the lignotuber is a vital part of this process that allows them to be harvested repeatedly, time and time again. The trees themselves are planted to protect the ancient farmland from wind erosion and desertification, and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, leaving behind a totally sustainable product and process from the onset, and through to you.
But before this process occurred, how did Kochii come to be? To find out more about the team who brought Kochii to life, click here.
