What is your Minimum Bulk Order Quantity?
Will you always have oil available?
Yes providing we do not have a natural disaster.
Do you stock these items or do you bring them in on spec out of Australia?
It is a combination of the two. We have a warehouse in Southern California where we have a supply of our oils. Often for larger quantities we will order from our farmers in Australia. We try to find out from our customers what their needs will be in the upcoming quarter to ensure we have enough product on hand. As we are growing quickly and building our reputation for unadulterated oils, this doesn’t always work. Those clients that make clear commitments to us for desired product are always honored. We recently had a run on oils like Radiata. In fact in the next two weeks, they will be harvesting Eucalyptus Radiata. We’d love to get an idea about what your company’s needs might be in the upcoming months for radiata and in fact, any of our oils that you are interested in. Some of our harvests are annual or bi annual. A couple are year round.
What is the difference between ecoV™ and Wild Crafted Oils?
The criteria for ecoV™ is Australian native Melaleuca alternifolia, true to species, grown and harvested in the Bungawalbyn Valley Basin and subject to long-term distillation to ensure all components in the oil are extracted to the highest level of purity. The natural biosphere of the Bungawalbyn Valley in northern NSW is the original place that Tea Trees evolved on the planet. Taking the trees out of the species birthplace creates a need for compensation in the form of extra fertilizers, insecticides and other treatments. A long-term distillation period ensures all compound in the oil are extracted to their maximum level – giving the consumer the WHOLE product. Short term distillation does not allow for all of the molecular compounds to be released and can skew an oil to show higher terpinen -4-ol, for example, while the other smaller yet important (healing) compounds in the oil may not even be extracted. 100% of anything means its “whole” – not some or most of it. When we say 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil – we mean the oil is based on ALL of the oil components available in the foliage and extracted to their maximum level. We offer ecoV™ oil in the plantation, organic and Wild Crafted grades of oil. We also offer some planation that is not branded ecoV™ but is distilled for a longer than average time and grown in the Bungawalbyn Valley (our “plantation” oil)
Our Wild Crafted TTO is oil is hand harvested from trees that grow naturally in the wild not planted in rows. Their leaves and branches are harvested with great skill and care, for the tree, so that their longevity continues. There is no foreign plant foliage in hand-harvested leaf.
Some of the trees on our property are thought to be up to 1,000 years old. We have thousands of Mother Trees across the properties. These trees are never harvested.
