Keeping it clean with Kochii

Posted 03 Apr 2020

One of the most common uses for eucalyptus oil is cleaning. The active ingredient to look for when using eucalyptus oil is cineole. The higher the cineole concentrate, the more efficient the cleaner. It’s important to look for products that contain over 70% cineole concentrate. Kochii contains between 90%-95% cineole. Sadly, although Eucalypts are an Australian tree, only 5% of eucalyptus production happens within Australia. Currently China produces the majority of the worlds supply. Conversely, Kochii is 100% grown and produced in Australia (Western Australia to be precise).
