There are several different kinds of Tea Trees but the one with the most potent medicinal oil is called Melaleuca alternifolia. It belongs to a sub-species of the Myrtaceae family, which also includes Clove, Eucalyptus and Myrtle. Tea Tree is native only to the northeast area of New South Wales, Australia, where it has long been used by the aboriginal people as an antiseptic. It develops into a tall upright shrub with papery bark and is covered in white flowers during the spring and summer. The needlelike leaves and small branches are picked throughout the year and distilled to produce Tea Tree essential oil. The oil is a highly effective topical antibacterial and antifungal, and by far the most important of the Melaleuca oils used in aromatherapy.

Perhaps, the most important property of Tea Tree essential oil is the powerful immunostimulant action, which is especially useful in debilitating illness such as glandular fever and for people who repeatedly succumb to infections. Tea Tree is also valuable for colds, influenza and the infectious illness of childhood. It can be used in a bath sitz to stop a cold or flu developing, or reduce its severity and help to prevent secondary infections.

Tea Tree essential oil is also valuable in the treatment of abscesses, acne, asthma, athlete's foot, bronchitis, catarrh, cold sores, coughs, cystitis, dandruff, herpes, insect bites and stings, pruritus, respiratory ailments, ringworm, sinusitis, thrush, tuberculosis, vaginitis, verrucae, warts and whooping cough.

Tea Tree essential oil has warm, spicy, camphoraceous top notes with pungent, medicinal undertones.

Tea Tree can restore energy depleted by everyday stress. It can reduce or alleviate mental fatigue and exhaustion. It is calming and centering during times of emotional disorders such as anxiety, depression, panic and stress.
