Tea Tree - Essential Oil
Tea Tree by Attar Bazaar is a 100% natural steam-distilled Essential Oil. It smells earthy, herbal, and camphorus.
The benefits of Tea Tree Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties as an antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic substance.
Unlike the name suggests, the essential oil of Tea Tree is not extracted from the plant commonly associated with tea as a beverage. Neither is it related to Tea Oil, which is extracted from the seed of the Tea plant. Instead, it is extracted through steam distillation of twigs and leaves of Tea Tree, which has the botanical name Melaleuca Alternifolia. The tea tree is native to Southeast Queensland and New South Wales, in Australia, which is why it is such a common and popular essential oil in that country. However, its impressive qualities have spread to other parts of the world, so it can now be found internationally.
This tree is native to Australia and its oil has been used and known among the original inhabitants of that continent as a cure-all remedy since ancient times. It is invariably found in almost all the households of Australia, particularly those that have small children. The magical healing and disinfectant properties make it a wonderful remedy that boosts your immunity. However, it is not meant to be ingested, and it is poisonous. It is meant for topical application only.
As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted. Do not take internally. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body.
