Product Abstract: The tea tree is a small tree or shrub with needle-like leaves. It is also domestically referred to as Ti-Tree. It can grow up to 7m (20ft) in height, thriving in marshy areas, although now cultivated on plantations. The aboriginal people of Australia have long used tea tree oil. Historically, the leaves were used as a substitute for tea, which is how it got its name. In World War II, the producers and the cutters of tea tree were exempt from military service until enough essential oil had been accumulated to accommodate the military's needs. Tea tree is very robust and is ready for cutting only two years after its previous harvest. As Essential oils have become more accepted by the public, the use of tea tree oil has increased significantly. This is readily seen in the commercial products now using tea tree, although this grade is best used for therapeutic applications. This is one of the very few essential oils that can be applied to the skin "neat," or, without dilution, at a maximum rate of 3 drops.


Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.


Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
