Tea Tree Essential Oil

Tea Tree Essential Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) from Australia is Therapeutic Quality Essential Oil steam distilled from the leaves and twigs. Tea Tree Essential Oil is also known as Tea Tree Oil.

Description: In the swampy conditions of New South Wales, Australia, thrives the 20 foot evergreen Melaluca alternifolia, also known as the Tea Tree plant. With cypress-like needles for leaves, its bark is papery, and its blooms are creamy white, yellow, or purple.

Today, Tea Tree Essential Oil is produced not only in Australia, but New Zealand and India as well. It requires a thousand pounds of twigs and leaves to be steam distilled into 18 pounds of essential oil. The oil has a fresh, warm camphoraceous odor with a slightly spicy note and blends well with lavender, clary sage, rosemary, pine, marjoram and many spice oils.

Uses: Some properties of Tea Tree Essential Oil can include analgesic, antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, neurotonic, phlebotonic, and immunostimulant.

Tea Tree Essential Oil has been used for acne, boils, abscesses, ringworm, athelete’s foot, oily skin, minor wounds, inflamed skin, vaginal infections, and staph infections, as it is believed to kill pathogenic organisms found on the skin without harming the skin’s natural balance. (A common warning is to NOT use it on burns). It has also been used to treat pressure ulcers and necrotic skin lesions of cancer patients. For skin problems, many people blend Tea Tree Essential Oil with Lavender Oil.

For respiratory infections, Tea Tree Essential Oil is reportedly excellent. With its antibiotic and antiviral properties, it has been used to help the body fight colds and flu, sinus infections, bronchitis, cough, sore throat, and ear ache. For respiratory inhalations, a traditional favorite is to blend Tea Tree Essential Oil with eucalyptus and lemon and/or thyme.

In addition to arthritis and rheumatic disorders, many people also recommend Tea Tree Essential Oil for adrenal fatigue, neurasthenia, in cases of depression and feelings of hopelessness, doom, or victimization, and to aid those recovering from prolonged illness and debility.

More Info: Australian aborigines use the leaves and blossoms to make a medicinal tea, hence the plant’s name. They also use it to treat various infections and skin disorders.

During World War II, the Australian Medical Corps gave flasks filled with tea tree oil to help ward off skin infections and to repel insects.
