At all Eucalyptus plantation sites:

  • Seedlings are germinated locally before being planted and tended by hand.
  • The soil is conditioned with lime on planting to ensure vitality of the soil.
  • Excess waste leaf from the distillation process is used to further improve the condition of the soil and retain moisture.
  • Weeds may be controlled by running cattle in the plantation which aso fertilises the soil.
  • The trees and the oil are not genetically modified.

Harvesting the leaves

As the demand for Citriodiol increases so do the number of trees planted to produce our oil. These plantations are sustainably managed by local partners.

  • Leaves and branches are harvested by hand from the trees by teams of local workers (both men and women)
  • Branches are cut selectively from each tree during the harvesting process so that the trees can continue to grow and produce new leaves for many years.
  • Once the branches have been harvested, the twigs containing leaves are cut from the branches and are used in the distillation process to produce Eucalyptus Citriodora oil.
  • The number of harvests each year is adjusted to ensure the on-going health of the trees.
  • During the 10-15 year life-span of each tree it will be cut to a stump (coppiced) and allowed to re-grow.
  • At the end of its life it will be cut down and a new line of trees will be planted adjacent.

ZERO Waste – The trees that are cut down are specially treated for use as poles or sold to local businesses. Remaining wood is used as fuel for the water boiler in the distillation process or mulched and used as fertiliser.

Distillation of the oil

  • Harvested twigs and leaves are placed in a large vessel, compressed and sealed.
  • Steam passes through the vessel distilling the oil from the leaves.
  • As the steam cools, the water and oil separate and the oil is captured in drums.
  • A closed water system condenses the cooling steam and re-circulates it for re-use.
  • Waste leaves and surplus twigs are used as fuel to fire the boiler which produces the steam and remaining waste is used to fertilise the soil.
  • No other fuel is required to run the boiler and excess energy generated by the process may
  • be used to run other machinery.
