What is Tea Tree Oil?

Tea Tree Oil is an aromatic oil with a fragrance evocative of nutmeg and is steam-distilled from the Melaleuca Alternifolia leaves. Is a native Australian plant, country wich now is the major source of tea tree oil.

Tea tree products are referred sometimes to as "melaleuca oil" and the pure oil is colorless to pale yellow with a very strong smell. More than 300 varieties exist, but only one is prized for its world-renowned oil.


Organic tea tree oil has been used as a natural antiseptic for over 200 years (that we know of) in Australia and is currently in use worldwide. The oil has a wide range of activity against fungi, gram negative and gram positive bacteria and is considered a very powerful antiseptic and an immuno-stimulant. It's most important use is in combating bacterial and fungal infections of the skin - from Acne to insect bites - a very versatile oil!one

And the best part is that research data indicates that pure Tea Tree Oil does not cause toxicity due to dermal absorption and that formulations of less than 10% will pose no risk of skin irritation, what makes it very safe to test on different skins!


As a completely organic product, tea tree oil

uses are many, some of which include:

  • Medicinal purposes
  • Skin care and hygiene
  • Hair care
  • Pet care
  • Miscellaneous uses, from insect repellent to the relief of the symptoms of arthritis.

It's use is only external, when administered orally results very toxic and hence the ingestion of pure Australian Tea Tree Oil is not recommended.
