Description

Tea tree essential oil, extracted from the leaves of Melaleuca alternifolia, is a 100% pure oil prized for its diverse properties in aromatherapy, natural cosmetics.

With a fresh, medicinal scent, it is known for its antimicrobial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties, making it a popular ingredient in skincare products targeting acne, dandruff, and minor skin irritations.

Historically, the indigenous peoples of Australia have used tea tree oil for its healing benefits in traditional medicine.

In aromatherapy, it is valued for its ability to purify the air, support respiratory health, and promote a sense of balance and clarity.

While not typically used in perfumery due to its strong medicinal aroma, it can provide a unique, invigorating element to natural fragrances when expertly blended with complementary essential oils.

MELALEUCA ALTERNIFOLIA
Tea tree Essential oil is another Must have in any households.

The Aboriginal Australians have used tea trees as a traditional source of wellbeing in a multitude of ways. They applied the leaves on wounds and used leaves to purify water. They brewed an infusion (Tea) of the fresh leaves, to drink and soothe sore throats, as well as to make topical compresses to calm insect bites and stings. Populations inhaled the oil from the crushed leaves to ease coughs and colds. During WWII, the Australian government included a bottle of tea tree essential oil in first-aid kits issued to the army. 

Today the wonderful all-round properties of Tea tree are recognized scientifically and used the world over.

Tea tree oil as antiviral and anti fungal

I start using it for my cows and milking goats udders with Castille soap and the results are suburb. Even for my hands - which are in water a lot during the day - it prevents them from getting chapped.
I am so impressed with the product and can really say since I started using this myself ( not only for my animals) I can definitely see an improvement in my skin condition (hands)

Used for hair-cair customization

I've already repurchased the Organic Shampoo and Organic Conditioner 3 times! I absolutely love that it is all-natural as well as paraben and sulphate free! It not only cleanses my hair perfectly, but it also doesn't strip my hair of all the beneficial oils! I customised my shampoo with a few drops tea-tree essential oil since I suffer from dandruff and it has helped SO much!! This is my new go-to when it comes to hair care. Couldn't recommend it more!

for my homemade toothpaste

Peppermint, Spearmint, Lemon, Nutmeg and tea tree essentials oils mixed in zinc powder, with a bit of glycerin on my toothbrush gives me the best homemade toothpaste. No chemicals, long-lasting and very efficient. It gives me a fresh breath!
