PURE TEA TREE ESSENTIAL OIL
Tea tree has a very long history of use by the Australian Aboriginal people for treatment of infected wounds and skin problems. Tea tree essential oil, however, is a relatively new addition to aromatherapy. It is closely related to cajeput and niaouli , with which it shares many of the same properties, but tea tree is considered more powerful. The oil is quite unusual in that it is effective against all three varieties of infectious organisms: viruses, bacteria, and fungi. As a potent immune stimulant, it also increases the body’s ability to respond when threatened by any of these organisms. No wonder it is called “nature’s first aid tree”!
This is one of the few oils that can be used “neat” or undiluted, so it is a convenient spot treatment for herpes lesions, acne blemishes, insect bites and stings, warts, corns, athlete’s foot, fungal nails, cuts and scrapes, boils, skin ulcers, localized rashes, burns, toothache, and puncture wounds. Powerful yet gentle, tea tree essential oil is a must-have for your home medicine cabinet.
For women, tea tree oil can deliver blessed relief from the itching and burning that accompany vaginitis and vaginal yeast infections. A few drops combined with vinegar and water makes a comforting, cleansing douche. Men can add it to a bath to help eradicate jock itch.
Respiratory congestion as well as deep-seated infections, such as bronchitis, sinusitis, rhinitis, pneumonia, and pertussis (whooping cough), respond favorably to tea tree’s healing strength.

Product Abstract: The Tea Tree is a small tree or shrub with needleTi-Tree. It can grow up to 7 meters (20 feet) in height and thrives in marshy areas, though it is now cultivated in plantations. The aboriginal people of Australia have long used Tea tree Oil. Historically, the leaves were used as a substitute for tea, which is how it got its name. In World War II, the producers and the cutters of Tea Tree were exempt from military service until enough essential oil had been accumulated to accommodate the military’s needs. Tea Tree is very robust and is ready for cutting only two years after its previous harvest. As Essential Oils have become more accepted by the public, the use of Tea Tree Oil has increased significantly. This is readily seen in the commercial products now using Tea Tree, although this grade is best used for therapeutic applications. This is one of the very few Essential Oils that can be applied to the skin ‘neat’, or without dilution, at a maximum rate of 3 drops.
