Tea Tree essential oil is derived from the leaves of a small tree commonly found in New South Wales and Queensland, Australia, called Melaleuca alternifolia. The plant isn’t related to black, green and oolong tea in any way. Tea tree is often confused with tea in general, but there’s no similarity whatsoever. It is an ancient medicine used for generations to heal and cure.
In traditional times, Australians would crush the leaves of the tea-tree plant, extract the oil and inhale it as a cure for cough and cold. This oil was also used on the skin to heal various microbial infections.
In the modern world, tea-tree oil is sold in 100% concentrated form that is diluted with other carrier oils or products before application. Some skin-care products contain 5 to 50 per cent tea-tree extract eligible for direct application on the skin.
Tea-tree oil comes as a significant ingredient in Aromatherapy which experts widely trust.
It always makes up for a significant cure remedy with anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial properties.
