Odd how the "gum tree" has become both friend and foe.
I recall visiting Australia for the first time decades back and seeing all of the varieties of the eucalypts across the vast spaces of the country from Tasmania to Bathurst Island, and marveling at the different looks of the trees, then to move to California later, and find them almost everywhere, to some people a pest of a growth, to others a fragrant source of shade. Little did I suspect that this would become a source of paper for my fountain pens !
What's next, tea tree scented fountain pen ink ? <wry smile>
The splitters amongst Botanical Taxonomists will tell you there are 600~700 species of Eucalypt. The lumpers will tell you there are 60~70 species.
The truth will lie somewhere in between...
Now I don't know about Tea Tree (Camelia) scented ink, but Ti Tree oil would act as both a very effective biocide and lubricant.
