Tea Tree Oil comes from steam distillation of the leaves of the tea tree. The tea tree grows on the swampy southeast coast of Australia. The aboriginal people of Australia have traditionally used tea tree oil as an antiseptic (germ killer) and an herbal medicine. Today, external use of tea tree oil is promoted for various conditions such as acne, athlete’s foot, lice, nail fungus, cuts, mite infection at the base of the eyelids, and insect bites.
