Possibly one of the most renowned herbal treatments throughout the world, pungent Tea Tree is ideal for use in soothing and healing a variety of ailments. Extracted from the green leaves of the Melaleuca Alternifolia, it is thought that Tea Tree gained its modern name from English explorer Cpt James Cook, whose crew drank infusions of the plant to treat scurvy. Indigenous Aboriginal people have used Tea Tree for centuries to treat coughs, colds, fevers and headaches for centuries. Combined with other medicinal, circulation-boosting oils such as Rosemary, Eucalyptus and Peppermint, Tea Tree is ideal for supporting the body during winter. Due to its medicinal properties, a bottle of Tea Tree oil is a very useful addition to any family medicine cabinet.
