In the picturesque rainforest of Bungawalbin Valley, Australia's Northern New South Wales, you will find our certified organic farm where thousand-year-old tea tree Mother Trees thrive in an untouched, pristine and completely organic environment. The majestic tea tree's natural healing properties provide inspiration and drive our spirit of innovation to create delicious products to help you stay healthy and rejuvenate your wellbeing for modern living.
Bungawalbin Valley has been identified as the birthplace of the Melaleuca alternifolia species of tea tree. For over 35,000 years, the species has flourished at Meluka Australia’s home, two thousand acres of pristine rainforest wetlands. They provide the spiritual pulse to our sustainable practices, commitment to bee health and focus on customer wellbeing.
Today, tea tree is cherished for its purifying anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-septic properties. Tea Tree has an abundance of uses in health products including:
Its antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiseptic properties make it a popular ingredient in anti-acne treatments.
With natural antiseptic, antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties, tea tree has been used to help reduce the risk of infection and bacteria.
Tea tree oil helps to moisturise the hair and scalp, helping to reduce dryness, flakiness and itchiness.
The antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties of tea tree make it perfect for household cleaning.
Add a few drops of tea tree oil in your diffuser to help purify and neutralise odours.
The Bungawalbin Valley provides our bees with some of the cleanest bush to forage. Across our organic farmland, they are drawn to the natural healing benefits of tea tree. Studies show that foraging on the tea tree help bees maintain a healthy immune system, providing a natural probiotic for their digestive system. This helps them produce honey that shows strong, immediate antioxidant and sustained anti-microbial and anti-bacterial activity.

We are committed to sustainable farming practices that keep our soil strong and our bees healthy. In our organic certified farm, we avoid the use of manmade chemicals. The lost art of ‘wild-crafting’ is practiced in our old growth forest, hand harvesting tea tree leaves to stimulate the biological defence system of the area, leaving it unspoilt. Looking after our bees is key for our beekeepers, prioritising their well-being to ensure they produce sustainable, natural honey.
