Ingredients: Pure essential oil of melaleuca alterniflora

Precautions: Found to be mildly irritating to the skin in concentrations containing up to 30% tea tree according to the book Essential Oil Safety. Can cause irritation to the mucous membranes and skin in sensitive individuals. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
Note: Our essential oil bottles do not come with reducer tops to control drops. Our high-quality essential oils are pure and non-diluted. Pure essential oils can be highly corrosive to lower density plastic (LDPE) which is what most orifice reducers are made from.
Habitat: It is a small tree from New South Wales in Australia, similar to Cypress, with needle-like leaves and heads of sessile yellow or purplish flowers and grows to about 20 feet high and thrives in marshy areas. Even when this tree is cut down, it flourishes and is ready for cutting again in two years.
Aroma: Tea Tree Oil smells medicinal, fresh, woody, earthy and herbaceous.
Affinities: Tea Tree oil helps to cleanse and purify the air, eliminating microbes, fungi and bacteria before you breathe it in through your respiratory system. Tea tree makes an excellent choice in natural home cleaning. Simply combine tea tree essential oil with water and vinegar to give you an effective home cleaning solution.
Folklore: For centuries, the people of Australia worked with Tea Tree as a medicine while the rest of the world remained largely unaware of this tree’s remarkable powers. After tea tree was introduced to Europe, its healing began to spread worldwide. By World War II, tea tree was recognized as a potent and practical medicine as soldiers in Australia were issued vials of Tea Tree oil as a part of their first aid kits.
Words of wisdom: To minimize an adverse reaction, start with a small amount diluted with a carrier oil and apply to a minor area on your skin. This will help you to determine if you have an allergic response. Discontinue use if reaction continues or gets worse. Do not take any oils internally and do not apply undiluted essential oils or other concentrated essences onto the skin without advanced essential oil knowledge or consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use caution when using oils with children and pets. Consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils with children, the elderly, during pregnancy, or if you have medical issues or are taking medications.
