Found only in Australia, Tea Tree is from the same family as Niaouli, Eucalyptus, Cajaput and Clove Bud. A study conducted in Australia in 1925 for three years by Arthur Penfold concluded that Melaleuca Alternifolia had antiseptic qualities many times stronger than carbolic acid which was the antibacterial agent used at the time. Tea Tree contains over 48 compounds, some of which have never been found elsewhere in nature. These products are not particularly effective on their own, but using the whole plant maximises the full healing potential of the Tea Tree. Discovered and used centuries ago by the Aborigines for a variety of conditions. The tree was named by Captain Cook's crew who brewed the leaves and drank it as a tea substitute. It was used extensively during the Second World War for its powerful antiseptic and germicidal properties.
The pale green oil is extracted from the twigs and leaves which has a strong odour reminiscent of Eucalyptus.
