The remarkable healing powers of tea tree oil have been known to the Aboriginal people of Australia for a long time.
Captain James Cook was the first European to come into contact with tea tree oil. His English crew, thoroughly spoilt in their choice of teas, concocted a zesty brew using the aromatic tea tree leaves. Botanist Sir Joseph Banks, who accompanied Thomas Cook, carried out an enthusiastic study on the effects of the oil, which was used by the indigenous people. He was soon using this oil to treat sick sailors.
Tea tree oil contains about 100 different substances. The astonishing effects of this oil are triggered by the composition of its essential substances.
