Product Abstract: A slow-growing tree native to Australian, the compact tree with blue-green foliage reaches heights of 75 feet, and its branches can spread up to 30 feet at the base. The Australian aboriginal Tiwi people used it medicinally for thousands of years. It is now grown in plantations, being valued for its fragrant wood. Among aromatherapists and manufacturers, this oil is considered similar to German (Blue) Chamomile. In temperatures below 20°C, this oil can solidify or have a thick consistency. We recommend placing the bottle in very hot water, changing the water frequently until it is back to the liquid state; be sure to shake well before use.
