Product Abstract: The Callitris intratropica botanical is a slow-growing tree native to Australia. This compact tree with blue-green foliage reaches heights of 75 feet, and its branches can spread out to 30 feet at the base. For thousands of years, the Australian aboriginal Tiwi people used it for medicinal purposes. It is now grown in plantations, being valued for its fragrant wood. Among aromatherapists and manufacturers, this oil is considered similar to German (Blue) Chamomile.
In temperatures below 20°C, this essential oil can solidify or have a thick consistency. We recommend placing the bottle in a bowl of very hot water and ensuring that the water remains hot until this essential oil returns to the liquid state. Shake well before use.
