What is Melaleuca (Tea Tree) Essential Oil

Monday, July 30, 2018

Melaleuca oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the Melaleuca tree native to Australia. The Melaleuca tree has been used as a medicine by the aborigines for centuries. Now our modern technology allows us to harvest the powerful essence of this plant and bring it into your home.

Some of the most popular uses of Melaleuca are:

  • Occasional skin irritations
  • Support healthy immune system function 
  • Useful on surfaces to protect against environmental threats.

Melaleuca is one of the oils we are most asked about as a doTERRA representative. Its popularity is due to its versatility.  Melaleuca's 92 different compounds give it limitless uses from skin care to promoting healthy immune function.

With all its many uses you are bound to find Melaleuca in many of your blends. When taken internally it blends well with citrus oils. When putting it in your skin and hair care products remember its medicinal smell will mix well with woody, earthy, and herbaceous scents.
