Integrating sustainability throughout our processes is imperative to Kochii’s vision. More over, we endeavor to support sustainability in Australia and we have successfully developed a sustainable business model that positively effects the surrounding environment of Kalannie, where our Eucalyptus kochii trees grow.
The only place where Eucalyptus kochii has ever been known to grow well under cultivation, is in the farmland in its natural range. A testament to its unique sustainability, the seeds collected from the remnant trees of Eucalyptus kochii are planted back into their farmland, where they thrive in the very hot summers known far and wide in this Western Australian landscape.
Only the Eucalyptus kochii trees that have been planted are harvested for oil production. Their valuable oil is extracted by steaming the leaves, using water that is continually recycled throughout the production process and processed leaves to fire the boiler.
Along with the continuous growth of the lignotuber and root system underground, the production process has a negative carbon footprint. This is an incredibly important testament to Kochii, as our entire process was built on the means of supporting the land and providing a truly sustainable process.
As the trees are harvested periodically for their oil, their ability to sprout from the lignotuber is a vital part of this process that allows them to be harvested repeatedly, time and time again. The trees themselves are planted to protect the ancient farmland from wind erosion and desertification, and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, leaving behind a totally sustainable product and process from the onset, and through to you.
After distillation, the Kochii Eucalyptus Oil is simply allowed to settle until it is bottled.
But before this process occurred, how did Kochii come to be? To find out more about the team who brought Kochii to life, click here.
