Tea Tree

Melaleuca alternifolia

Tea Tree essential oil is one of the most widely used and researched essential oils in the world. In addition to offering a particularly fresh scent, its advantages also include outstanding cleaning properties. In fact, Tea Tree oil is so versatile that it can be used for almost everything — from creating a signature scent to boosting your skincare routine. With a bottle of pure tea tree oil, you can instantly elevate meditation or yoga practices from home, and, thanks to its moisturising and cleansing properties, the oil can be added to lotions, shower gels and hair care products to provide a soothing treat.

Tea Tree oil is created through steam distillation, using leaves from the Melaleuca alternifolia tree, which is native to Australia and a member of the Myrtaceae family. Tea Tree essential oil has been prized for centuries thanks to its myriad of benefits, but today, is particularly treasured in the beauty industry, thanks to its skin-nourishing properties and antioxidant function.

Young Living’s Tea Tree oil is grown and distilled at the Amanzi Amahle Farm and Distillery in Cape Town, South Africa, where staff work alongside local growers throughout the region to produce some of Young Living’s most popular essential oils. Following Young Living’s Seed to Seal® quality commitment, this partnership helps to provide smaller farms with the resources they need to produce high-quality essential oils, while also dedicating efforts to conscientious treatment of the people and the land.

    Native to Australia but grown by Young Living on their farm in South Africa, Tea Tree, or Melaleuca alternifolia as it is otherwise known, is a tree that comes from the Myrtle family. To create Tea Tree essential oil, the leaves of the plant are steam distilled, creating an earthy, refreshing, and uplifting aroma that can be used in a variety of manners. Tea Tree oil is particularly popular in the beauty industry, as its cleansing and purifying properties make it an excellent ingredient in many skincare products. When applied topically, it can help improve the appearance of healthy-looking skin. It also provides a beautifully clear scent when combined with other essential oils for a DIY perfume.
