Our Community Fair Trade tea tree oil is sustainably sourced in Kenya. We partner with a number of farms and independent farmers who steam-distil the tea tree leaves within 12 hours of harvesting them, to make sure we’re bottling our purest and most potent oil. Since tea tree has natural purifying properties, the crops don’t need agro-chemicals to fend off pests. Which is pretty cool.
Our trade provides a fair price and stable income to hundreds of farmers belonging to Kutoka Ardhini (which means ‘from the ground’ in Swahili) in rural Kenya, where employment opportunities are low. We take a lot of pride in making sure we source the highest quality ingredients to infuse our products, while making sure they’re having a positive impact on people and the planet.
