Native to Australia, Nerolina is an evergreen tree that grows up to 35 feet and has papery bark, fragrant leaves and green or red flows. Nerolina is the linalool chemotype of Niaouli. The leaves are put through a steam distillation process to extract the essential oil. For added tranquility, try blending Nerolina with Spike Lavender.
