Tea Tree pure essential oil
Botanical name: Melaleuca alternifolia
The essential oil shows strong therapeutic activity for all three types of infectious organisms, viruses, bacteria and fungi, and it is a powerful stimulant for the immune system.
Tea tree essential oil is available in 1 ⁄ 3 oz violet glass bottles designed to preserve the purity and properties of the essential oil from the degrading effect of light. This ensures that you get the maximum holding life for your essential oil. The bottle comes with a dropper that provides you with a convenient and simple way of dispensing your angelica essential oil.
While the term �tea tree� is applied to all members of the melaleuca family of trees and shrubs, the Australian aboriginal has used this particular tea tree for a wide range of therapeutic purposes. This tea tree has given rise to considerable medical research because of the curative properties exhibited. The essential oil is extracted by distillation from the leaves and twigs of the tree, and has a distinctive sharp and clean aroma. The oil is pale yellow to watery white.
Named tea tree by Captain Cook, a British sailor who explored the South Pacific in the 18th century. The leaves were included in personal first aid kits of allied forces soldiers during World War 2.
