Tea tree, botanically known as Melaleuca alternifolia, is known for its powerful antiseptic properties and ability to treat wounds. Tea tree essential oil has been widely used throughout Australia for at least the past century and has been documented in numerous studies to kill many strains of bacteria, viruses and fungi.

Tea tree essential oil has many practical uses at home, including making homemade cleaning products, diffusing into the air to kill bacteria and mold, and applying it topically to help heal skin issues. Melaleuca is also becoming a popular active ingredient in a wide variety of household and cosmetic products, including face wash, acne treatments, shampoos, massage oils, skin and nail creams and laundry detergents. Tea tree’s natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory actions make it an essential oil that should truly be part of everyone’s natural medicine cabinet.

  • Acne
