Organic Tea Tree Oil
Obtained by steam distillation of the leaves and branch tips of the tea tree, the organic tea tree oil is considered the medicinal product of Australia. It owes its name to the observation by Captain James Cook that the aborigines of Australia boiled various leaves to make a tea with a variety of medicinal properties.
The pharmaceutical effect of organic tea tree oil has been studied many times. It is considered effective against viruses as well as bacteria and fungi, so it is used in natural medicine for skin irritations, acne, genital infections, insect bites, and complaints in the upper respiratory tract. Inhalations, ointments, sprays, compresses, shampoos, or facial oils or water with the organic tea tree oil are conceivable.
In this context, the cosmetics industry also takes advantage of these antiseptic properties and uses organic tea tree oil in products against impure and sensitive skin. Sometimes the organic tea tree oil is included in perfumery for earthy scents.
In aromatherapy, organic tea tree oil is intended to restore clarity and motivation in the event of excessive demands, listlessness ,and fears.
