Ancient Apothecary Tea Tree Essential Oil 

For topical, aromatherapy or dietary purposes.

Note: Statements with daggers refer to internal use. All others refer to aromatic or topical use. 

Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca, has strong purifying qualities. This makes it an ideal oil for skin-cleansing regimens and for household cleaning use—as well as an air purifier and to support a healthy immune system.

Tea tree oil is truly nothing short of amazing! In fact, the health benefits of tea tree essential oil are due to its multi-faceted healthy attributes—ones that are recognized and appreciated worldwide.

The name “tea tree,” however, may be misleading, since tea tree oil is not extracted from the plant commonly associated with the beverage known as tea. In fact, it’s not even remotely related to tea oil, which is extracted from the seed of the tea plant.

More accurately, tea tree oil is extracted via steam distillation of twigs and leaves of the tea tree, which goes by the botanical name Melaleuca alternifolia. Often known simply as Melaleuca, tea tree oil is native to Australia—in Southeast Queensland and New South Wales mostly—which explains why it is such a common, popular essential oil there. And while it’s a favorite in Australia, it’s also become a revered and trusted essential oil worldwide.

Tea tree oil is made up of some powerful constituents, including alpha pinene, beta pinene, sabinene, myrcene, alpha phellandrene, alpha terpinene, limonene, cineole, gamma terpinene, para cymene, terpinolene, linalool, terpineol and alpha terpineol.

That’s a bunch of scientific names, but the bottom line is that tea tree oil, due to its properties, can provide powerful benefits.

Truth be told, tea tree oil has such a strong reputation for its benefits that it’s commonly known as a “go to” among some people, including many Australians who keep this precious essential oil readily available in their household cabinets.
