What is Tea Tree Oil and where does it come from?
Tea Tree oil is made by the process of steam distillation of the leaves of the Australian Tea Tree, scientifically known as Melaleuca alternifolia.
The tea tree can be found growing in the swamps on the southeast coastline of Australia .
It’s best known for its powerful antimicrobial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties which can potentially help with a whole host of problems, from athlete’s foot, to acne.
Story of Discovery & Traditional Use
In 1732, Captain James Cook first brought the attention of tea tree oil back to western society. It was named tea tree because of the refreshingly spicy tea he made from the leaves of the melaleuca alternifolia tree.
For centuries, tea tree oil has been used traditionally by the Australian Aboriginal people. They extracted the oil that spills out of the tea tree leaves when crushed, and would inhale the fumes to help treat colds or coughs, as well as applying it topically to the skin for a variety of different healing reasons such as cuts, scrapes and swelling. It was also used to help soothe and cure sore throats.
In around 1770, Captain James Cook learned more about the tea tree from the Aboriginal people of Australia, who told him all about their healing uses for this magical oil.
Cook returned and was eager to have western doctors confirm tea trees' multifaceted healing abilities. Once confirmed, tea tree oil’s use skyrocketed and became a popular choice all over the world as an antimicrobial agent.
Since then, people throughout the world have used tea tree oil to help treat a variety of different ailments. Mainly it is used for its antimicrobial properties, as well as its ability to help treat minor cuts, scrapes or injuries.
