The use of tea tree oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) was first documented in the 18th century when sailors who came to the Australian continent, led by Captain Ko, one of the greatest ocean explorers, encountered a tree with coniferous leaves. It is called Tea Tree Oil, but it has nothing to do with the black and green tea you know. These sailors were exposed to its therapeutic properties, but this oil was known to the locals who used to brew the leaves in water to relieve winter illnesses (hence the name given to it “tea tree oil”).
Tea tree oil – a powerful and natural healing
Tea tree oil is one of the most powerful oils. It is rich in terpenoids, an anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antimicrobial agent. It is excellent for treating acne, treating fungus – foot fungus and nail fungus.
Because it is so intense and concentrated it is important to be used careful:

If you choose to work with it direct on the skin it is important to test small spot to see the effect as there are cases where direct use on the skin can cause irritation, swelling and itching.
