 "Tea tree oil is an essential oil that can be used for several purposes, including keeping skin, hair and nails healthy," writes Franziska Spritzler for Healthline.


Tea tree oil is one of the most extensively researched essential oils, and one of the most backed by the findings and conclusions discovered from the studies done on it. It is produced from a shrub like tree by the name of Melaleuca alternifolia, which is found along streams and in swampy areas in its native land of Australia.

In the 1920’s a chemist by the name of Arthur Penfold was busy exploring the properties of native volatile oils, isolating their properties, exploring their molecular structure, and contributing to the chemical understanding of variations within plant species.

During his studies in phytochemistry, he found that tea tree oil appeared extremely promising due to its powerful antiseptic properties.

But well before Mr. Penfold kick started the commercial tea tree oil industry, native aboriginals were using and benefitting from tea tree oil, and passing their knowledge down throughout generations.

Tea tree oil uses are endless, with a long and rich history which continues to this day.

Used externally (such as in soap), tea tree oil can help support a healthy glow for your skin.
