  • PRODUCT INFO

    Aroma
    Tea tree, sometimes spelt ‘ti tree’, is an essential oil with a pungent, fresh, medicinal aroma and with a slightly spicy, powerful undertone.

    The plant
    The Tea tree originates from New South Wales in Australia and is said to be similar to Cypress tree. It grows to about 20 foot and thrives in wetter soils such as marshes. Now the tree is typically cultivated in plantations but remains only in Australia. It is a tree with great vitality and strength and will flourish given the right environment. The tea tree is a useful and sustainable source of oil, as it is ready for harvesting every two years, even when chopped down.

    Affects
    Although tea tree oil is comparatively new to aromatherapy compared to other oils, it is now widely used for its antibacterial, antiseptic and stimulating properties. Indeed, research has been conducted to investigate tea tree oil and its affect on the immune system and its anti-fungal properties, especially on treating skin conditions. 

    Chemical constituents
    Terpinenol (Alcohol), Cineole (Ketone), Cymene, Pinene, Terpinene (Terpenes).

    Blending
    Tea tree essential oil blends well with spice oils, as well (not exclusively) lavender, rosemary, pine, ylang ylang and marjoram.
