Traditional & Historical Information:
The Aborigine people of Australia are likely the longest standing practitioners of healing with Melaleuca tree (Tea Tree) for a wide range of topical and oral applications. When the first white settlers arrived in the 18th century they learned how to use the leaves for their own healing applications. But Tea Tree remained largely a bush remedy for 150 years until the 1920s, when an Australian chemist, Arthur Penfold distilled the oil and discovered its antiseptic and antifungal properties.
Tea Tree has since been confirmed as having a host of healing benefits including antiseptic, antiviral, fungicide, insecticide and stimulant and has become a household name indicated for a number of conditions such as cuts, head lice, ringworm, thrush, tonsillitis and gingivitis. It has also been used for foot problems and nail bed infections, as well as being promoted as an efficient expectorant and helpful for sore throats.
May be irritating to sensitive skin. Safe if used as directed. If using in the mouth, do NOT swallow. If ingested, drink milk and seek advice. Avoid contact with eyes: flush with water. Keep out of reach of children.
