Why you should definitely have Tea Tree Essential Oil at home!

January 08, 2019

The medicinal benefits of Tea Tree were first discovered in the 19th century in Australia, the crushed leaves were applied injuries, cuts and wounds to help fight infections. Eventually the scientific community realized that there was something about the claims and began to research the effects of the plant, especially its antimicrobial properties. 

In 1923, Dr. A R Penfold, curator and chemist at the Government Museum of Technology and Applied Sciences in Sydney, Australia, conducted a study of the leaves of the tea tree. Dr Penfold discovered their essential oils to be thirteen times stronger an antiseptic bactericide than carbolic acid, considered the universal standard in the early 1900s.

During World War II, an outbreak of foot-fungus became so bad as to hospitalize hundreds of Australian soldiers. None of the "modern" ointmints, lotions and medicines would work to stop this fungus. One day, a medic who was an aborigine from Australia, remembered about the Tea Tree and got some of the Oil. The doctors coated the effected soldiers feet with the pungent smelling oil, and the fungus was killed within a few days!
