A medicinal, camphorous aroma, highly recommended for your first aid kit. Used as an antimicrobial, antiseptic, astringent & stimulating essential oil.
Tea tree, sometimes spelt ‘ti tree’, is an essential oil with a pungent, fresh, medicinal aroma and with a slightly spicy, powerful undertone. Although tea tree oil is comparatively new to aromatherapy compared to other oils, it is now widely used for its antibacterial, antiseptic and stimulating properties. Indeed, research has been conducted to investigate tea tree oil and its affect on the immune system and its anti-fungal properties, especially on treating skin conditions. Tea tree essential oil is extracted from the leaves or twigs by steam or water distillation. Tea tree essential oil blends well with spice oils, as well (not exclusively) lavender, rosemary, pine, ylang ylang and marjoram.
