Did you know Australia was the major supplier of the medicinal type of eucalyptus oil to world markets, supplying over 1,000 tonnes of oil each year.
It's all different now. Approximately 90% of the Eucalyptus oil used in products you'll see on the supermarket and health store shelves in Australia comes from China, South Africa and Brazil.
This makes Australian Eucalyptus oil a rare thing!
Australian Eucalyptus makes up only about 3% of the World's usage. Check out the country of origin of any bottles and products you have in your home.
Australian Eucalyptus is arguably better quality, smells nicer (we've tested it and we agree) and is produced in a far better environment. We're happy that the native blue mallee redistilled oil we use gives the cleanest fresh fragrance to our new simplyclean Australian Eucalyptus Laundry Powder.
