The Wonders of Tea Tree Oil

The Wonders of Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil (melaleuca alternifolia) is one of the most powerful anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial natural ingredients known. The oral history of aboriginal Australians tells of healing lakes into which the leaves of the tea tree plant had fallen and decayed over time. And it seems Captain Cook and his men enjoyed tea made from the leaves (hence the name) and noticed its effects. But it was only in the 1920s when the power of the tea tree plant began to be scientifically recognised and studied and since then, a whole host of studies has verified the amazing power of the plant to heal and soothe all sorts of skin conditions.
