Tea Tree essential oil is used as a germicide and antiseptic for the relief of minor skin conditions and abrasions.
A tree native to Australia, the Tea Tree is an evergreen tree, measuring between 6 and 10 meters high and whose leaves are very fragrant. Its name comes from the navigator Thomas Cook who, once in Australia, had tea made from the leaves of the tree and noticed that the natives used the leaves as a poultice on wounds and infections. Today, Tea Tree essential oil remains a staple in the family medicine cabinet for its antiseptic, antibacterial and germicidal properties.
