Tea Tree Essential Oil, also known as melaleuca is a popular oil that traces its origin to the Aboriginal people of Australia. For over a millennium the leaves have been applied as a disinfectant and antifungal agent. The plant’s medicinal properties remained a secret to the world until the 1920’s when Australia chemist Dr. Arthur Penfold, began investigating its antiseptic properties. During WWII the Australian government made tea tree oil part of first aid kits. Tea tree essential oil has powerful anti-inflammatory and disinfectant compounds which treat insect bites, blemishes, burns, skin ailments, infected wounds, bruises, lice and dandruff.
