Flinders Island Essential Oil Adventure
Flinders Island is a very scenic part of Tasmania that lies in the windswept 'Roaring Forties' in Bass strait to the north east of the Tasmanian mainland. It has some of the cleanest air and rainwater in the world due to its geographical position, and as such is a perfect place for the production of essential oils, and is one of Pure Oils of Tasmania's sources of oils that are wild harvested and grown entirely free of harmful chemicals.

Flinders Island is known for its pristine natural environment and is home to abundant wildlife such as wombats, possums, wallabies, pademelons and bandicoots. The vegetation features many plant species that are high in essential oils and particularly those of the Eucalyptus family Myrtaceae. The Tasmanian Blue Gum (Eucalyptus globulus), White Kunzea (Kunzea ambigua), Lavender Tea Tree (Melaleuca ericifolia) and Manuka Tea Tree all grow in abundance there and the essential oils from these plants are high in the active ingredients that make these oils unique.
