Tea Tree Essential Oil

Tea Tree Essential Oil

A new world native, Melaleuca alternifolia has long been used by the Aborigines as a tea, which explains why the first European explorer of Australia, Captain James Cook, called it the tea tree. The Aborigines also used the oil topically to heal inflamed skin or inhaled it as a treatment for colds and coughs. Soon, European sailors began drinking it to treat scurvy and it was even used during WWII to treat wounds. Today, tea tree’s reputation as wonder-oil makes it a medicine cabinet essential – its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties make it effective against psoriasis, athlete’s foot and dandruff, and it's a great natural mouthwash, deodorant and room freshener.
