Aura Cacia 100%Pure Essential Oil Tea Tree Description
- 100% Pure Essential Oil - Cleansing
Revered as an aroma that has purification power, tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) is one of the most prominent essential oils used in cleansing applications. From counter sprays to toilet cleaners, tea tree essential oil is a must-have in the home. In aromatherapy, tea tree essential oil is employed for its physical nature, rather than its aesthetic qualities. However, many appreciate its underlying warm, nutmeg-like aroma.
Tea Tree oil is native to Australia with over 80% of the crop coming from Australia alone! Standard tea tree distillation methods leave biomass needing to be discarded or it takes up useful space on the farm. As a manufacturer of tea tree oil, we’ve worked with our supplier to find a solution. After purchasing them a machine, they’re able to incorporate leftover biomass from the tea tree oil distillation process into their soil as compost fertilizer. Less waste and better oils.
We believe the highest quality essential oils and skincare oils come from plants that are grown where they thrive. We source from over 40 countries to secure the best oils possible. Our source visits allow us to obtain firsthand knowledge of growing practices, harvest cycles, environment, and worker conditions to ensure Aura Cacia’s vision, values and expectations are being met.
Gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC/MS) testing is the primary way to ensure an essential oil is an unadulterated, true botanical. Every batch of Aura Cacia essential oils is GC/MS tested. This product is vegan and cruelty-free.
Aura Cacia® was founded over 40 years ago on pure essential oils and true aromatherapy benefits. We partner with suppliers to source high quality botanicals and rigorously test every batch to ensure purity. We then provide premium products with consumer safety at the forefront. And importantly, Aura Cacia is part of a member owned co-op that puts people and planet ahead of profits.
