Revered as an aroma that has purification power, tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) is one of the prominent essential oils used in cleansing applications. From counter sprays to toilet cleaners, tea tree essential oil is a must-have in the home.
In aromatherapy, tea tree essential oil is employed for its physical nature, rather than its aesthetic qualities. However, many appreciate its underlying warm, nutmeg-like aroma.
Aura Cacia Tea Tree essential oil is native to Australia and New Zealand. It has evolved through careful cultivation to maximize its many benefits, resulting in an essential oil that is highly effective and easy to use.
What’s the difference between organic tea tree essential oil and conventional tree essential oil? Organic essential oils differ from conventional oils in that the botanicals from which they are derived are grown according to the USDA’s Organic Standards. Aura Cacia's manufacturing facility and all of their organic essential oils have also been certified organic by the established third-party certifier, Quality Assurance International (QAI).
• The key to tea tree essential oil’s effectiveness is the ratio of two constituents: cineole and terpinene. Cineole can be a powerful skin irritant. Therefore, tea tree oils with low cineole and high terpinene contents are preferred.
• Clary sage, geranium, and marjoram essential oils sweeten tea tree’s aroma, and spice oils like nutmeg and cinnamon increase its warm, woody notes.
• In addition to home care products, tea tree essential oil is also used in a variety of body care products such as salves, balms, purifying and detoxifying masks, and skin-protecting oils, gels, and sprays. It’s also used in scalp and hair recipes.
• Tea tree essential oil is generally considered a middle note.
