Some information about the Tea tree
A traditional medicinal tree from the wetlands of Australia, it has been widely cultivated to satisfy a large demand for its interesting properties, particularly anti-infectious. It is a small tree with alternate needle-like leaves. Its name comes from the tea that was traditionally prepared from the leaves.
In French, we can also say arbre à thé. Its resinous, slightly musty aroma blends well with the scents of cypress, eucalyptus, geranium, lavender, lemon, lemongrass, mandarin and rosemary.
Native to Australia, it is traditionally used by aborigines to treat infected wounds or burns. Medical research is very interested in its many properties. It is the leading antiseptic oil, well tolerated and non-toxic (pure use is possible in many cases). It is essential in the first aid kit with lavender of course.
Tea tree essential oil has many properties, the main ones being: antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic and antifungal. Its applications are numerous. Cleansing and disinfecting, it is also suitable for the respiratory system and has a strong capacity to stimulate the immune system. When diffused, it will prevent the spread of infectious problems.
Note : Tea tree oil can be used pure in diffusion. But it can also be mixed with other essential oils. Pregnant women over 3 months old can use it in diluted air diffusion.
* The chemotype is the identity card of the essential oil, its chemical composition defined by chromatographic analysis. The same plant can have several compositions depending on the place and the variety. A chemotype depends on a property, an odour, a taste.

100% pure and natural oil
An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with a dropper cap.
