Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil is derived from the leaves of the tea tree. Tea tree oil is applied to the skin (used topically) for infections such as acne, fungal infections of the nail (onychomycosis), lice, scabies, athlete’s foot (tinea pedis), and ringworm. It is also used topically as a local antiseptic for cuts and abrasions, for burns, insect bites and stings, boils, vaginal infections, recurrent herpes labialis, toothache, infections of the mouth and nose, sore throat, and for ear infections such as otitis media and otitis externa.
Tea tree oil, or Melaleuca alternifolia oil, is made from the steam distillation of leaves from the narrow-leaf tea tree plant.
