Melaleuca essential oil, or Tea Tree, is a legendary and ubiquitous essential oil on the Australian continent. Melaleuca is called ‘first aid kit in a bottle’ by Australians and has been used for centuries by the Bundjalung aborigines for everything from first aid to respiratory problems.
Melaleuca altinerfolia is one of the 300 varieties of tea trees most commonly used for essential oil.

Eighteenth century explorer Captain James Cook christened it ‘tea tree’ after drinking a tea brewed from the leaves of the disease-resistant trees. Water in the flooded wetlands, where tea trees thrive, is visited by people today to soak in the oily secretions floating atop the water.
