Other Information (Harvesting Information)
Kimberley Heath essential oil is extracted by the steam distillation of the fresh flowers.
Harvesting is of the extensive wild stands of the plant, the plant is quite common in the wild and is found in a very large region of northern Australia.
A government licence is required to harvest the plant and its flowers. This licence stipulates that only 10% of the flowers can be harvested.
The fresh flower although very fragrant, contains only a small amount of essential oil compared to other Australian essential oils. Typically 0.2% essential oil is recovered from the flowers, harvesting is also entirely done by hand harvesting. The low oil yield and distances travelled are responsible for the premium cost of the oil.
