100% Pure Tea Tree Essential Oil(INCI: Melaleuca Alternifolia)
Tea tree oil (Melaleuca oil) is a pale yellow colour to nearly colourless and clear essential oil with a fresh camphoraceous odour.
A powerful natural antiseptic and anti-fungal oil, traditionally used to help fight infections and clear skin conditions.
The scientific discovery of the plant’s virtues came in 1923 when the leading state government chemist, Arthur Penfold, tested the oil of the tea tree and determined its antiseptic action was about 12 times stronger than the widely used carbolic acid. Extensive clinical trials with medical and dental colleagues in London and Sydney led to glowing reports in the distinguished scientific journals of the day.
The 1930’s and 1940’s saw tea tree oil widely acclaimed as a near perfect antiseptic, so much so that during World War II Australian soldiers were issued with tea tree oil in their first aid kits. The troops also sang the praises of tea tree oil’s insect repellent and anti-fungal properties. At home, it was put to an amazing spectrum of uses from shampoo, toothpaste and smelly feet to boils, acne and head lice.
People use tea tree oil for the following conditions:
- Athlete's Foot
- Fungal Infection of the Toenails
- Periodontal disease
- As an antiseptic
