Tea Tree Essential Oil is steam-distilled from the leaves and terminal twigs of the Tea Tree tree, also known as the Melaleuca Alternifolia plant. As part of the steam distillation process, steam is passed through the tea tree plant material, effectively volatising the volatile compounds, and allowing them to be condensed and collected.
Tea Tree and Tea Tree Oil Characteristics
The tea tree plant grows up to five to seven meters in height and can be harvested annually. The Melaleuca Alternifolia plant characteristically features papery bark and multiple layers of a linear leaf. The tea tree’s leaves are usually bright green in colour, and it blossoms with bottle-brush type white flowers in spring.
Tea Tree Essential Oil ranges from a pale-yellowish or green colour, to almost clear. This Oil is well-known for its medicinal aroma, which is often described as being warm, spicy, woody, herbaceous, and earthy.
