Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tree essential oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) helps maintain a healthy-looking scalp and hair, and supports skin health. Apply to feet and toenails when needed. This oil includes naturally occurring constituents terpinene-4-ol, gamma terpinene and alpha-terpinene, and is included in Purification® and Melrose™ essential oil blends, Animal Scents™ and Rose ointments, and ClaraDerm™.
With a fresh, crisp aroma, Tea Tree oil is an ingredient of many soaps, creams, lotions, deodorants, disinfectants and air fresheners. It is most commonly recognized by the name tea tree oil, so named by Captain James Cook (1728 – 1779), because he often used the leaves in his tea. The part used for essential oil is the oil from the leaves.
