Essential Oil Name: Tea Tree Oil
MSDS / CoA
Botanical Name: Melaleuca alternifolia

Description: Although the Tea Tree plant is indigenous to Australia, it is grown in many parts of the world including China. The Chinese tea tree plant is a small shrub with needle-like leaves similar to that of the Australian variety.
Common Uses: Tea Tree essential oil is best known as a very powerful immune stimulant. It can help to fight all three categories of infectious organisms (Bacteria, Fungi, and Viruses), and there is evidence that Tea Tree oil massage prior to an operation may help to fortify the body and reduce post-operative shock. Used in vapor therapy, Tea Tree oil can help with colds, measles, sinusitis and viral infections. For skin and hair, Tea Tree has been used to combat acne, oily skin, head lice and dandruff. As essential oils have become more accepted by the public, the use of Tea Tree has increased significantly. This can be readily evidenced by the commercial products now using Tea Tree essential oil.
Mixed well with: Basil, bergamot, citronella, clary sage, clove, eucalyptus, geranium, ginger, juniper, lavender, lemon, marjoram, myrrh, nutmeg, oregano, peppermint, pine, rosemary, rosewood, tangerine, tea tree, thyme, and ylang ylang.
Safety Information: Can be used undiluted, however it's best to do a patch test first. Limit usage to the problem area, and avoid the surrounding skin. Tea tree may cause irritate skin for sensitive skin types. Do not massage directly on or below varicose veins.
Disclaimer: Please note, the International Federation of Aromatherapists do not recommend that Essential Oils, Carrier Oils, or Hydrosols be taken internally unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor who is also qualified in clinical Aromatherapy.

This tea tree oil may be very useful, if I ever manage to open the 16-oz. aluminum can. It is more reasonably priced than any competitor I found. Hooray!! The outer safety cap thing came open easily, then i found a pull ring inside to open the oil. I am physically unable to open it. I am an over-60-year-old woman but I am no weakling. I almost never need help opening jars and cans. I will have to take pliers to this thing and pray that all the oil doesn't all spill out when I pull it. Can't wait to have the use of the oil! I use it in my laundry. With an active pet, I need to sterilize laundry all the time, sometimes it's cold wash laundry so the tea tree oil neutralizes any germs from pee or the like without having to use hot water. Very helpful!

Apparently clean, particulate-free and undiluted Australian Tea Tree oil. Well packaged and economically priced. Processing/Shipping was a little slow. A week elapsed from order placement to delivery (transit from VA to NC).

I am not familiar with this product but I have nothing negative to say about it. It is very concentrated and appears to be of excellent quality. I will continue to order this product unless I find the quality is less than what I have purchased at this time.

Shopping online for Tea Tree oil, I exhaustively researched as many essential oil distributors as I was able to find. I checked that the Latin name for the product was indeed the proper variety that I required, too. Many sites offered a different genus type which I again researched to determine if it was up to snuff and not an inferior variety. On every oil I needed Green Health provided not only the correct Latin name for the variety I needed as well as the best offerings of sizes, but their price was consistently more reasonable than ALL of the other sources. The shipment came quickly and well packaged, too. When I sampled my oils once they arrived I was pleased to find they all were consistently of fine quality, and not diluted, reduced or thinned down. But don't just take my word. See for yourself. You'll inevitably reach the same conclusion. The oils were nicely packaged and bottled, albeit without the little plastic inserts that restrict the flow. But that's a five cent item and if you need it you can just pour the contents into a bottle that has that inexpensive flow restricting device. My recommendation is: Buy all your essential oils from this reputable company in order to purchase the real McCoy at the fairest price. I'm very pleased with every item and I'll continue to get all of my oils from Green Health. It would be foolish not to.
