Tea tree Essential oil Australia
Odor: herbaceous and woody
Use: The tea tree is an evergreen, bushy tree endemic to Australia. The long branches have narrow, slender, bright-green leaves and, when in bloom, the tea tree is covered in cottony plumes of pretty white flowers. Australian aborigines have utilized the leaves for their medicinal properties for centuries, but it was not until the 20th century that tea tree essential oil started being produced in Australia from wild trees. In a move to perpetuate the species, tea tree cultivation has expanded over the last twenty years. The leaves are harvested in the summer, starting in December. The trees are pruned when the foliage is the thickest and the leaves contain the maximum amounts of essential oil. The cuts are done in such a way as to allow the tree to regain its foliage in two years. The extracted essential oil is herbaceous and woody.
