Tea tree oil is derived from the leaves of the tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia). The tea tree was named by eighteenth century sailors, who made tea that smelled like nutmeg from the leaves of the tree growing on the swampy southeast Australian coast.
The AromaSense tea tree is produced in New Zealand and is certified organic.
Tea tree oil NZ is applied to the skin (used topically) for infections such as acne, fungal infections of the nail (onychomycosis), athlete’s foot (tinea pedis), ringworm, lice and scabies.
Our New Zealand tea tree essential oil is also used topically as a local antiseptic for cuts and abrasions, for burns, insect bites and stings, boils, toothache, infections of the mouth and nose, sore throat, and for ear infections such as otitis media and otitis externa.
Tea tree oil can be used undiluted to small areas of the skin. It is generally safe but take caution as it may irritate sensitive skin.
Our organic tea tree oil NZ made is extracted by steam distillation.
This involves using steam from boiling water to extract the essential oil from the plant.
The heat from the steam causes the plant’s cell walls to open allowing the essential oil to be released.
