The essential oils we hold close to our hearts often evoke memories of time spent in nature and come from the plants, trees and bushes that surround us. These oils are grounding and help us respect and appreciate the earth right beneath our feet.


The Backhousia anisata plant has a long and rich history in traditional indigenous medicine in Australia. The tree's leaves and branches were used to treat a variety of health conditions, such as coughs, colds, and respiratory infections. The plant was also used to flavour food, as its sweet, anise-flavoured leaves were highly prized by indigenous peoples.

Creating high-quality Anise Myrtle essential oil requires carefully harvesting young leaves and twigs from the tree and subjecting them to steam distillation. The steam
distillation process used to extract Anise Myrtle essential oil is a delicate and time-consuming process that requires a great deal of skill and expertise.

Today, Anise Myrtle is still highly valued in traditional medicine practices, and is also grown commercially for its essential oil and as a culinary herb in Australia and beyond.

Enjoy the fragrant native aromas of our limited-edition Anise Myrtle essential oil. Responsibly sourced near Lismore in New South Wales, Australia, and extracted from the leaves and stems of our indigenous Anise Myrtle plant, this superbly aromatic essential oil is a celebration of our country’s unique and diverse natural flora.
