Plant Information

Tea Tree is a very popular essential oil for its many great uses and uplifting aroma, Tea Tree is a common ingredient in skin and hair products as well as insecticides and bug repellents. Topically, tea tree oil is applied to the skin for infections such as acne, toenail fungal infections, lice, scabies, athlete's foot, and ringworm. Used in traditional medicine by Aborigines for centuries, this small tree is native to Queensland and New South Wales, Australia. Highly valued for its natural remedies, it was used to for fungal skin conditions, treating bacterial infection and promoting healing. Back then, the tea tree leaves were crushed to extract the oil, which is then inhaled to treat coughs and colds or applied directly to the skin for healing.
