Also known as Lavender Tea Tree, Rosalina is part of the Australian Melaleuca family. Originally referred to as 'Swap Paperbark', Melaleuca ericifolia is a small tree growing to 7-9 metres with narrow leaves. It also has identifiable 3cm cream bottlebrush flowers appearing during the spring and summer.
Rosalina has existed in the aromatherapy markets for around 20 years, having first been identified in the 1950s, but a recent investment in cultivation around its natural growing areas has increased production and brought with it some new economies of scale. As a result, Rosalina is now finding its way into many new applications - and why not?
There are many body care and personal care products in the market combining the scent and benefits of lavender and tea tree, yet this special oil offers both the linalool and 1,8 cineole components that highlight those respective oils. Typically, linalool is found at concentration levels of 45% and 1,8 cineole around 20%.
Combining these attributes makes rosalina a popular product in the aromatherapy / natural health markets. Topically applied it is known to offer good antiseptic benefits, helps with respiratory problems, and is calming and soothing. It is also a gentle oil so is good for use with children, sometimes referred to as 'soft tea tree'.
Stocks of rosalina have dwindled to almost nil. The production at present is rather small, but GGN has established additional plantings of rosalina. Operations have commenced and the market expects to receive this additional volume by 2020. With this, GGN has become the largest supplier in the world. Plant observations have shown two specific varieties, the Northern rosalina that has higher linalool, and lower cineole content as compared to the genetics of the Southern rosalina variety.
