Lemon Scented Eucalyptus Oil?

Is this a true thing??

Well, yes it is and tbh, we have based our new Hand Sanitising gel around this beautiful Australian Botanical. Guided by our fellow Indigenous Australians for thousands of years, we have learnt a few things and I am here to share that with you.

The trees are indigenous to Australia and have the most amazing fresh Lemon scent, with a follow through fragrance of the eucalypts.

Where do they grow?

Lemon Scented Gum trees naturally occur near and around the forests of Maryborough to Mackay in mid  Queensland and again around Atherton in north Queensland. Lemon Scented Gum grows to a maximum height of 40metres in the wild, like most Eucalyptus it can  grow on low nutrient soils. The trunk of the tree is quite smooth to touch, the fallen leaves have a distinct and very strong fragrance.

Where can I use it?

Skin Care: Topically, it is a great antiseptic, plus it’s also the perfect tonic to revitalise and decongest sluggish skin. 

Hair Care: Improves blood circulation to the scalp, providing a nourishing boost to your hair roots and stimulating new hair growth.  Antiseptic and antibacterial, working to clean the scalp and fight scalp conditions, such as dandruff and mild forms of psoriasis.  Anti-inflammatory that naturally moisturize and soothe irritated skin around follicles. Increases strength and elasticity to hair strands, and reduces split ends and hair breakage. Restores shine and bounce.

So there you have it, and I for one, am very intrigued by this beautiful part of Australia’s landscape.

Hi, It’s been an interesting day here at Dilkara’s head office as we’ve been collaborating with our friends at Solar Bare to create an Indigenous fashvest (Vivienne’s creative trademark which describes her range) to showcase how we can create magic by bringing businesses together. Both Vivienne and I are Griffin Accelerator graduates and we are keen to see our products go Global and introduce our fabulous brands to the world!

…and where will we showcase this? Why in Poland of course! yes, at the Australian Cultural Centre, we are going to create a bit of Aussie spirit and bring our cultures together for the world to see!

Qantas adds Dilkara Essence Of Australia to InSky.

Well, what an exciting day, we’ve made the application and we’ve achieved a very exciting deal with one of Australia’s most iconic businesses. I love that Qantas is keen to support our Indigenous business whilst promoting the best that Australia has on offer.

I think the most amazing lesson that I’ve learnt over the past few weeks is to surround yourself with people that share your vision and really want to see you succeed.

Thank you to everyone that has supported this process and we look forward to seeing your holiday photos with our Qantas exclusive Kata Tjuta Desert Dreaming by Dilkara Essence Of Australia.
