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'.
Wild rosalina trees flourish in wet, swampy lowlands. Thus, it hardly comes as a surprise that New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania are its prominent habitats. Its oil is extracted through steam distillation of the leaves, twigs, and branches. Rosalina oil is also referred to as lavender tea tree because of the gentle lavender back note. It is mostly used as a subtler version of tea tree oil with lavender tendencies. Rosalina oil has mostly seen a stable market, though unfavourable weather conditions in Australia may lead to a decrease in production.
