About Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil

The Tea Tree plant is a twenty foot evergreen that thrives in the swampy conditions of New South Wales, Australia. With needle-like leaves, its black and white bark is papery and its blooms are creamy white, yellow, or purple.

Today, this oil is produced not only in Australia, but New Zealand and India as well. Although the quality of Australian Tea Tree essential oil is highly variable, we believe that the oils from New Zealand and India are not as good as the best Australian selections. Differences in the quality of Australian selections seems likely due to differences in the way in which the essential oil is produced and some distillers may not take as much care as others.

Tea Tree essential oil has a distinctive fresh, pungent and somewhat camphoraceous aroma with a slightly spicy note and lemony undertones. It blends well aromatically with lavender, clary sage, rosemary, pine, marjoram and many spice oils. It is difficult to blend with many floral notes, however, and can spoil the aroma of a blend if too much is used.

The energy of Tea Tree essential oil has been described as Warm and Dry and some aromatherapists have claimed that its aroma helps to promote a positive outlook and strengthen the spirit.

Tea Tree essential oil is appropriate for both inhalation and use on the skin. For use on the skin, it should be diluted in vegetable oil or jojoba to a maximum concentration of 2.5%. To achieve this concentration, add  23 drops of the essential oil to one ounce of vegetable oil or jojoba.
