DESCRIPTION

 

The essential oil from the leaves and twigs are employed in aromatherapy for relief of cough, colds, and congestion, and topically for its antiseptic action.

 

Native to Australia, steam-distilled tea tree oil has a history of use among its indigenous people dating back centuries. Employed primarily for its antibacterial properties, the complex mosaic of volatile compounds also exhibits antiviral and antifungal activities. Pathogenic bacteria including Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus are among the microorganisms it’s effective against, with promising results for the opportunistic yeast Candida albicans as well.

The mechanism of action is similar for both bacteria and yeast: Volatile components within tea tree oil compromise the structure and selective permeability of the cell membrane. This process also denatures proteins within the cells, leading to their death, and more importantly their ability to multiply and spread throughout the body.

Explore the many therapeutic application for New Roots Herbal’s Tea Tree Essential Oil. Remember: A little goes a long way with a 1% dilution ratio recommended for topical use.
