Tea tree essential oil is derived from a plant with a long and fascinating history. Did you know Tea Tree is also known as Melaleuca? Some people prefer to call it Melaleuca because it is closer to its botanical name. Tea Tree oil has been used as a medicine by the aboriginal people of Australia for thousands of years. Native healers sometimes stuffed a sick person’s pillow with these leaves as it was believed to help provide a restful night’s sleep due to its decongestant properties.
Tea tree oil's main components, terpinen-4-ol and 1,8 cineole are what gives tea tree its strong antimicrobial properties to help fight against infections.
