Australian Tea Tree

Introducing… Tea Tree Oil

There’s no denying it. Nature is amazing!

This aromatic shrub, native to New South Wales, produces a pale yellowy-green or water-white liquid which has antiseptic and antibacterial properties!

It has a variety of uses, from helping to clean and protect the skin to helping to maintain healthy hair and feet.

But don’t just take our word for it. By delving into the past you’ll find that this incredible plant has been used by the Aborigines for thousands of years and was even used by soldiers during World War II.

The Aborigines have been using the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia – or Tea Tree – to heal themselves for thousands of years.

The antiseptic and antibacterial powers of this remarkable shrub were harnessed by the Bundjalung people (Aborigines) of eastern Australia.

They discovered that the leaves could be used in a number of ways.

It is also said that the Bundjalungs would boil the leaves into a health-giving brew and even bathed in a ‘magical’ lagoon surrounded by leaves which had fallen and macerated in the water.

The wonders of the Tea Tree remained a secret known only to the Bundjalung people until the 1770s when Captain James Cook began his exploration of eastern Australia.

One of the greatest explorers of all time, Captain James Cook, found fame when he became the first man to chart New Zealand… but did you know he was also responsible for discovering Tea Tree Oil?

Legend has it that during his exploration of eastern Australia, Captain Cook came across the Bundjalung people who had been using the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) themselves for thousands of years.

Cook was amazed to see the indigenous Aboriginals boil the leaves into a health-giving brew, and bathe in a ‘magical’ lagoon of fallen leaves.

It was only when Cook tasted the special brew himself that he came up with a new name for this remarkable plant – tea tree!

Cook discovered Tea Tree Oil 230 years ago and it has been growing in popularity ever since.
