A unique, newly released West Australian essential oil with a beautiful, light citral scent.

The oil is harvested and steam distilled from Melaleuca teretifolia (marsh honey myrtle), a small tree to 5m. It grows naturally on the property, at Harvey.

Research with Wollongbar University and a joint paper (I.A. Southwell, M.F. Russell, R. L. Smith, J.J. Brophy, and J. Day, Melaleuca teretifolia Chemovars: New Australian Sources of Citral and 1.8-Cineole. Journal of Essential Oil Research 2002, 14, in press.) has been written about this exciting new oil.

The oil has the highest citral (neral and geranial) content of all Melaleucas, and has significant perfumery and therapeutic potential.
