High-quality, 100% natural, pure essential oil for aromatherapy use. Tea tree oil is cleansing, purifying and invigorating.
What is Vitacost Tea Tree Oil?
Tea tree oil is a highly concentrated, undiluted extract that’s steam distilled from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia tree. First used by the Australian aborigines in the 1700s, tea tree oil gained popularity in the early 1900s when Australian physicians began using it as a skin cleaner and protectant.
Tea tree oil is commonly used for aromatherapy practices such as massage, inhalation, full-body baths, hand/foot baths, facial steaming, facial masks, compresses, spritzers, perfumes and flavorings. It may also be used for household purposes such as room fragrance (using a diffuser or humidifier), laundry, cleaning, dish washing and more.
Note, this product does not have a dropper insert. If the plastic seal has adhered to the bottle opening, remove it and place it back in the cap.
How does tea tree oil support health?
Tea tree oil is often used for cleansing the skin, hair and scalp as well as for skin health.
Tea tree oil contains chemicals called terpenoids, which are naturally produced by the plant as a possible defense mechanism against predators. The main active constituent, terpinen-4-ol, appears to be responsible for the benefits of tea tree oil.
