“…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.)

Lemon Scented Tea Tree is a shrubby plant native to Australia and New Zealand. It is popular all over Australia as a garden ornamental small tree. It grows quickly to around 16 ft. Tea Tree Lemon Scented Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves and terminal branches of the plant. The color of the oil is pale-yellow to almost clear. It has a fresh, strong, pleasant, lemon aroma. Besides exhibiting a revitalizing aroma, it has been said that L. petersonii “is more lemony than lemons.”

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.

As AUROMA knows each of the Farmers, they guarantee the authenticity of each oil. Just to be certain, they analyze each oil using the latest state-of-the-art GC-MS technology, which can detect impurities to one part per billion. Yes! AUROMA represents the best there is in Essential Oils. We can supply the following documentation: Certificates of Analysis and Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

To meet the stringent demands of the professional aromatherapist, AUROMA has drafted the following seven requirements that an essential oil needs to meet so it can be used with confidence:

  1. BIO-TYPE: Not only does an oil have to come from a defined botanical species, but from a particular genetic strain.
  2. CHEMO-TYPE: The same botanical species can often produce completely different constituents.
  3. GEO-TYPE: Oils from a particular area are often of superior quality. Examples are Rose Oil Bulgarian or Sandalwood East Indian.
  4. COMPLETE OR WHOLE: The oil should come from a single distillation and should not be rectified.
  5. WILD OR ORGANIC: Where possible, AUROMA always selects the wild growing plants for distillation. When wild types are not available, AUROMA commissions farmers who do not use pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Certified Organic options are available.EX STILL: AUROMA distills small lots of ils in-house and advises farmers on distillation methods.
  6. ANALYYSIS: Oils are tested by AUROMA in Australia with the most advanced state-of- the-art equipment in the world.

  • Topical Applications: Tea Tree Essential Oil may be used in massage, compress, bath, sitz bath, douche, liniment and skin care.
  • Just to smell: You can enjoy the aromatherapy of your favorite Essential oil or Blend without even taking it out of the bottle. Keep a bottle in your purse or your car. Simply open-up and smell. This can be particularly helpful during times of stress.
  • In a Diffuser: Use a diffuser with Tea Tree Oil to revitalize and purify your indoor space. 
  • As a Room Spray: Bring the Outdoors Indoors with Tea Tree Oil. Fill a 4-fluid ounce glass mist spray bottle with water. Tighten the cap, shake well before using and spray the mist into the air. As the air freshener ages, the sent improves and becomes stronger. Spray around your home, your office, your clothes, your clothes, your pets, etc.
  • As a Massage Oil: When applying Tea Tree Essential Oil on the skin, a carrier oil should always be added to the mix to protect the skin from being irritated. For best results, all massage formulas should be massaged for at least 30 minutes. See “Cautions.”
  • In a Hand Bath: When you experience tired and aching hands, select a carrier oil such as grapeseed, sweet almond, hazelnut or sesame – to dilute the Essential Oil or Blend. Add the oils to a basin of warm water and soak your hands for 20 to 25 minutes. See “Cautions.”
  • For Foot Care: Tea Tree Essential Oil is used by many in Australia for athlete’s foot. “Cautions.”
  • In Steam inhalation: Add 10 drops of Tea Tree Oil to a bowl of hot water. Drape a towel over your head, clothes your eyes, and inhale the vapors. Select from the following suggested oils:  See “Cautions.” 
  • As an Insect repellent: A 20% solution of Lemon Scented Tea Tree was found to be effective against a particular mosquito. It gave immediate repellency and remained effective for 4 hours for at least 50% of the insects. This is a good result for an essential oil. Contains citral and citronellal.
  • In Years Gone By: During the 20th Century, Tea Tree became a household remedy in many Australian homes. It served as an essential ingredient in the World War II soldier’s kit. World recognition for health claims in the past 70 years have propelled Tea Tree as a leading and natural alternative for its antiseptic properties. The Australian tea tree oil production expanded and boomed over the 1980/90’s to being Australia’s largest essential oil export earner in terms of dollar volume.
