Tea Tree (Australia) Essential Oil

Tea tree (Australia), essential oil
Latin Name: Melaleuca alternifolia 
Origin: Australia

Extraction Method: Steam distillation


Native to Australia, the tea tree produces one of the most well-known essential oils. The tree was first discovered by Captain Cook's sailors in the 18th century - they brewed a tea with its leaves to fight scurvy, hence the plant's name. The indigenous people were already well aware of the healing powers of the leaves. Research has proved that Tea Tree essential oil has powerful antimicrobial and anti-fungal effects. Its aroma is pungent.

Tea tree oil is made by distilling the oil from the leaves. It has great healing powers that you’ll find many ways to use at home for the whole family.

Tea tree oil can be used in the form of an essential oil. It can also be used in combination with other herbs. Commercially you can buy tea tree oil in many skin products such as astringents, cleansers, soaps, and even aftershave. Many acne fighting formulations contain tea tree oil to boost the antibacterial action. Tea tree oil also gives a clean aroma to products that contain it.

If you’re looking for an all-purpose oil  tea tree oil is a great one to have on hand.
