What Is Tea Tree Oil?
Tea tree Oil is a volatile essential oil, extract through steam distillation of twigs and leaves of tea tree, which has the botanical name Melaleuca alternifolia. The tea tree is native to Southeast Queensland and New South Wales, in Australia, which is why it is such a popular essential oil in that country. However, its impressive qualities have spread to other parts of the world, so it can now be found internationally.
Our oil is Australian Premium Tea tree Oil. INCI Name is Melaleuca Alternifolia. This is also called Australian Liquid Gold.
It’s been widely used throughout Australia for at least the past 100 years and for over seven decades, it’s been documented in numerous medical studies for its ability to kill many strains of bacteria, viruses and fungi.
