Testing of tea tree oil

Adulteration of tea tree oil has been shown to occur in the international tea tree oil market. Testing of tea tree oil evaluates the components and establishes its purity as a natural product.

Our tea tree oil at Tea Tree Traders Codrington is University laboratory tested and it meets all Australian Tea Tree Industry Association code of practice standards for tea tree oil.

After this year’s July harvest our plantations are looking great as the growing season progresses. Growth is lush and this year’s application of natural fertiliser (chicken manure) has been applied. Tea tree plants love their chicken manure!

Michael Flanagan reports on the 2014 tea tree plantation harvest.
” the 2014 harvest has commenced in June and will be completed shortly. We had some very good rains in the 4-5 months leading up to harvest. Since December 2013 we have had ideal growing conditions through extended periods of above average sunny and warm days. The distillation shows increased yields from all paddocks and the oil analysis shows excellent quality tea tree oil.
The 2014 harvest on our farms looks like being our best yet.
