Description

One of the most well-known essential oils in skincare, Tea Tree Oil is a versatile and potent oil with a long-recorded history of use - going all the way back to use by Australia’s first inhabitants, the Aboriginal People. Growing along the eastern coastline of Australia, the Tea Tree’s bark and leaves were used by the Bundjalung people of that region, calling the area “Healing Grounds”.

Some of the first European settlers in Australia saw Bundjalung Nation people using the crushed leaves as a poultice for wounds and using the strong aroma and vapours from the leaves to treat coughs and congestion. They quickly realised that Tea Tree was far more effective than the modern medicines they had brought and began to favour it as a natural remedy.

Tea Tree leaves are naturally antifungal and antimicrobial - making the oil an essential in Australian soldier's government-issued gear pack during World War II. The Tea Tree oil was used as a quick antiseptic for minor scrapes, and as a potent purifier, to keep their gear free of fungus & moulds.

Tea Tree oil is also a popular skincare ingredient used for treating acne-prone skin.

Every essential oil unit comes in an amber frosted glass bottle with an easy to use dropper and includes a batch number & best before date. The Certificate of Analysis (CoA) and Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) are available upon request.

Product FAQs

I get some pimples now and then - undiluted Tea Tree Oil is more effective at clearing acne, right?

No - never use undiluted Tea Tree Oil on your skin! To create your own spot treatment with Tea Tree Oil, it should be diluted to at least a 2% concentration with your favourite carrier oil. For acne-prone skin, lightweight oils such as jojoba or squalane are recommended.

I have a dandruff problem and I heard Tea Tree Oil can help… How do I use it?

Most dandruff is caused by a fungus called malassezia. While it's naturally found on our bodies, it can sometime cause irritation to our scalps, resulting in the visible skin flakes that we know as dandruff. Since Tea Tree Oil can be used as an antifungal, it can definitely be used to relieve dandruff. Tea Tree Oil can be diluted in a carrier oil such as coconut oil (which has its own benefits for the hair and scalp!) and massaged into the scalp for dandruff relief.

My doctor gave me prescription antibiotics for a wound, but I want to use something more natural. Can I use Tea Tree Oil?

When it comes to prescriptions, you should always follow your doctor’s instructions. In this case, Tea Tree Oil can be used alongside your doctor’s prescription to help support your body’s natural healing process but should not replace a prescription treatment.
