General Description: Probably one of the greatest success stories in the essential oil world. Pioneered by Christopher Dean who established Thursday plantation more than 25 years ago. The tree grows in natural 'stands' in soggy ground and was used during the last war when medicines were difficult to get from Europe. It has since blossomed into a very virile Australia Natural Industry in New South Wales. The tree grows now in plantations that are regularly coppiced, the twigs and leaves being distilled to provide the oil. It has a very wide spectrum of bacterial applications especially in hospitals where it can attack MRSA and other bacteria
