Tea tree

 


Tea Tree Oil first came to the attention of Western Society in 1732 when Captain James Cook made his famous trip around the world. When they landed in Australia, Captain Cook brewed a spicy and refreshing tea from the leaves of the Melaleuca Alternifolia tree thus naming it the "Tea Tree." It was used extensively until Penicillin was invented.

Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca oil, is an essential oil that comes from steaming the leaves of the Australian tea tree. The fresh-smelling oil has been used for thousands of years, and is known for its powerful  antimicrobial and antiseptic properties.

Our Tea Tree oil is steam-distilled from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia plant, a native of Australia.  It helps to soothe redness, swelling, and relieve painful irritated skin. Also, it’s been shown to be more effective than zinc oxide and clobetasone butyrate creams in treating eczema. The antiseptic properties of tea tree oil combat oily skin thus less skin breakouts. In my opinion tea tree oil is one of nature's best phyto remedy I know. 

Our Tea tree oil is organically sourced in Australia.
