The oil is extracted from the leaves and twigs of the shrub.  Native to Australia, all the oil is produced there.

Tea tree was named by Captain Cook's crew, who brewed the small, dark leaves and drank it as a tea substitute.  Its astounding healing properties were used by the Aborigines.  During World War II medics recognised its powerful germicidal and antiseptic effects.

The essential oil has a spicy, hot, nutmeg-like, medicinal smell and is a powerful, non-irritating antiseptic that kills bacteria, fungi, and virus.

In aromatherapy, it is used for cuts, burns, acne, stings, blisters and herpes.  It is very effective in treating yeast and fungal infections.
