Tea Tree Essential Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia)

Product Description

100% essential oil extracted from Melaleuca alternifolia grown on the original Tea Tree plantation near Lismore, NSW, Australia.

Antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal… Tea Tree is a truly a marvellous native Australian plant.

There’s no doubt about it: Tea Tree oil is tops when it comes to healing oils. It is an excellent anti fungal and antimicrobial essential oil.

Tea Tree is closely related to Cajuput (Melaleuca leucadendra) and Niaouli (Melaleuca quinquenervia) but is more powerful than both.

The steam-distilled essential oil is widely used in household and personal toiletries and cleansers as well as in natural remedies.

The fragrance is resinous with a warm spicy and aromatic odour.

Tea Tree is a “first aid in a bottle” treatment for abscesses, acne, athletes foot, blisters, boils, cold sores, dandruff, insect bites, lice, ringworm and infected wounds.

In conjunction with its antiviral, antibacterial and anti fungal qualities, these capacities make it one of the most important oils to use in gargles, baths, massage blends, air sprays and diffusers to treat respiratory tract infections such as bronchitis, colds, coughs, influenza, fevers, sinusitis, tonsillitis and whooping cough. Add it to air sprays and diffusers to prevent infectious diseases from spreading.

It may be use undiluted on small areas of the skin, however we recommend that it always be used diluted as it may cause sensitisation in some individuals.

Tea Tree blends well with cinnamon, clary sage, clove, cypress, eucalyptus, geranium, ginger, lavender, lemon, lemongrass, mandarin, marjoram, rosemary and thyme. See our essential oil range here.
