The newest member of our Tasmanian native essential oil portfolio, Coastal Tea Tree ( Leptospermum laevigatum) is a unique variety of the myrtle family Leptospermum. Although it isn’t as widely known as its Leptospermum cousins such as Manuka and Lavender Tea Tree, the oil found in its leaves is just as aromatic and effective with many interesting uses.
Our Coastal Tea Tree is sourced from wild-crafted stock found in the pristine coastal dune environment of Tasmania’s Flinders Island. The leaves and branchlets of this tall bushy shrub are steam-distilled, producing a pure oil that boasts a sweet earthy scent with light woody and citrus tones.
Coastal Tea Tree essential oil also contains compounds which have a range of beneficial properties including anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-viral. It is therefore ideal for use in therapeutic settings such as spas and massage rooms, and in aromatherapy applications for overall well-being, reducing stress and improving respiratory function.
