Native to Australia, the Tea Tree has been used in natural remedies for thousands of years. The Aborigines used both the bark and leaves of the Tea Tree for a variety of purposes. During World War II, Australian soldiers carried Tea Tree Oil as an essential part of their first aid kits. Apply a few drops as needed to desired skin areas. Dilute for use on sensitive skin. Can also be used in aromatherapy, as an air freshener, or in potpourri.
