Traditional & Historical Information
The Aborigine people of Australia have long used the therapeutic oil of the Melaleuca tree (Tea Tree) for a wide range of topical and oral applications. When the first white settlers arrived in the 18th century they learned how to use the leaves for their own healing applications. But Tea Tree remained largely a bush remedy for 150 years until the 1920s, when an Australian chemist, Arthur Penfold distilled the oil and discovered its antiseptic and antifungal properties. Tea Tree has since been indicated for a number of conditions such as cuts, head lice, ringworm, thrush, tonsillitis and gingivitis. It has also been used for natural healing a number of foot problems and nail bed infections, as well as being promoted as an efficient expectorant and helpful for sore throats.
