Plant Description

With roughly 250 species, Melaleuca is most typically found in Australia. Melaleuca oil, or Tea Tree oil, is extracted from the leaves of Melaleuca shrubs or trees, which have a strong aroma when rubbed. Melaleuca essential oil is produced through the process of steam distillation where steam and pressure are used to release chemical components from the plant—pulling out the essential oil.


Fun Fact:
Bungwalbin Creek in Australia is surrounded by Australian tea trees and is held sacred by the Aborigines. As the sticky tea tree oil leaves fell into the creek, they created waters that natives still consider “magical waters” today.
Oils that blend well with Tea Tree oil
Because it is a herbaceous, green aroma, Tea tree oil blends well with other invigorating and refreshing essential oils like Peppermint, Eucalyptus, or Lemon.
