“…the strong, bittersweet spiciness of tea tree essential oil invigorates the heart and mind, uplifting the spirit and building confidence.” (Moay G. Aromatheraay for healing the spirit. Hodder and Stoughton, UK, 1996.)
Melaleuca alternifolia is a fast-growing shrub with needle thin leaves. It is a native Australian tree growing in the North East region of New South Wales, bordering Queensland. There are over 300 varieties of Melaleuca, however, only one, the Melaleuca alternifolia, contains large amounts of antiseptic and fungicidal constituents. While any species of melaleuca that conforms to the standard ‘Oil of Melaleuca; Terpinen-4-ol type’ can be traded as Australian tea tree oil, only M. alternifolia, represents the official Australian Tea Tree Oil, representing 99% of Australian volume in dollars. It is steam distilled from the leaves and terminal branches of the shrub. The color of the oil is pale-yellow to almost clear. Tea Tree Bush Still Essential Oil has a warm, fresh, spicy, camphor-like, medicinal scent.
Tea Tree Bush Still derives its generic name from the fact that it is grown in small bush stands. Traditionally, the trees were cut by manual labor using cane knifes, and the crop was immediately bagged for transport, as the leaves tended to fall off when drying out. To avoid loss and optimize quality control, the leaves are collected into a “Bush Still.” This is a steam distiller used on site in the direct vicinity of the tree’s natural habitat. The harvested leaf is placed in racks inside the steamer. Heat is distributed through the still by burning wood, Once the water boils, steam is created and passes through the capillaries of the leaves. The capillaries that contain the essential oils burst. After the Essential Oil is released, it passes to a collection tank. Here, the oil floats to the top where it is filtered and poured into containers to be shipped to the marketplace.
After years of research in Australia, it has been found that Tea Tree Oil is an active ingredient against all three (3) major infectious organisms of bacteria, fungal and viruses.

FACT: The Australian aborigines have long recognized the virtues of tea tree. The leaves were simply crushed in the hand and the volatile oil inhaled to relieve colds and headaches. The name tea tree was first used by Captain Cook in 1777, when the leaves of melaleuca or leptospermum were brewed to make a tea to prevent scurvy.
