Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil is an essential oil, pale yellow in colour with a fresh camphoraceous smell and a colour that ranges from pale yellow to nearly colourless. It’s extracted from the leaf of the Melaleuca alternifolia which is native to the Lismore region of New South Wales.

It grows in a limited area of approximately 50 square kilometres; this is the natural habitat of the tree, the low lying, spongy rainforest area of Australia. There have been numerous attempts at growing Tea Tree in several other places in the world, but the result has been sub-standard with either the oil quality or the trees not maturing.
