Native to Australia, Melaleuca alternifolia tree can grow to 5-7 meters tall. Its preference is to grow in warm and wet climate, hence east coast Australia being its ideal place to thrive. Primarily, the Leaves of organically grown Melaleuca tree (commonly known as tea tree), are picked gently and carefully. The collection is then steam distilled patiently, to make a large batch of Ecodrop’s Tea tree essential oil. Finally, the batch is sent to UK to be bottled and find its way to your home.
One of the most popular essential oils, Tea tree oil is far known for its cleansing and purifying properties. A top grade antiseptic, hence known to be skin’s best friend. Incredibly soothing, tea tree is used to treat and calm skin irritations. Aside from skincare, this precious oil is ideal for treating hair and nail.
Melaleuca, also known as tea tree has been used to treat wounds, cuts and skin conditions for decades. Back in time, Australian aboriginals use to make a great medicine by crushing the leaves into a paste, then applying it onto their bruised or irritated skin to disinfect and heal.
