The Tea Tree is native to the New South Wales and Queensland regions of Australia, growing on wet swampy land. Tea Tree grows to a height of about 20 feet, spreading to about 13 feet at its fullest. It has papery bark made up of several layers. The small leaves are, about 3.5 cm long, narrow, and pointed. The flowers are small, five petalled, usually white in colour and are formed in the spring, on dense spikes up to 5 cm long. They are followed by woody capsules.
Thought to have been called "Tea Tree" by Captain Cook when he reached Australia. His sailors used the leaves of this abundant tree to make an infusion in hot water which resembled tea - hence the name - tea tree, but it is quite different to the true tea. For centuries the aboriginal people of Australia used infusions of the leaves of Tea Tree to combat skin infections, insect bites and minor wounds. They also used Tea Tree leaves as a natural insect repellent. Infusions of tea tree leaves they used as a remedy for oral infections associated with tooth decay and dental abscesses.
During WWII, Tea Tree oil impregnated bandages were successfully used in some field hospitals to reduce the risk of wounds becoming infected by micro-organisms.

People are beginning to realize that they can get rid of their physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual ills through the use of aromatic essential oils. Universities and hospitals are studying the use of aromatherapy oils. Some hospitals in Oxford, England, for example, have replaced chemical sedatives with essential oil blends which include lavender, marjoram, geranium and cardamom oil.
Firms in Japan are pumping aromatherapy oils such as lemon and rosemary through the air conditioning systems to improve employee efficiency, especially in the less productive hours of the afternoon. An entire new field of health care, making use of aromatherapy oils with their sedative, calming, pain-reducing effects, is growing around the care of the terminally ill. Aromatherapy oils, with their air-purifying, anti-viral, antibacterial, antiseptic abilities, are ideal for vaporizing in hospitals and crowded public places to prevent airborne infections. Mass aromatherapy is also suggested to influence social behavior and increase work efficiency.
Aromatherapy is essentially old wine in new (little brown) bottles. Aromatic essences were popularly used centuries ago in India, Egypt, China and Greece. We've all heard the story of Cleopatra's amorous adventures aided by aromatic essences, of ayurvedic use of essential oils for medicine and massage, the use of sandalwood to enhance meditation, and the use of aromatic resins by Egyptian embalmers to preserve mummies. Modern aromatherapy has come into its own in the past 30 years.
Widely practiced in Europe and the UK, aromatherapy is also finding converts in Australia, Canada, the USA and Japan. A decade ago, you could hardly come across an English book on the subject, or find it mentioned in the periodicals. Entire journals are now devoted to the subject, with researchers, industries, medical practitioners, alternative health therapists, and amateurs jumping on to the aromatherapy bandwagon.
Essential oils are chemically complex and very versatile. Juniper oil, for example, can be used to treat skin problems, dandruff, diarrhea or joint pain. The natural plant essences with their hormone-like properties and vitamins, minerals, and natural antiseptics, are easily absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin or nose. Different fragrances, with varied vital electromagnetic properties and vibrational energies, serve to stimulate our immune system, circulatory system and neurological functions.
Essential oils can be put in three categories: those that invigorate the body and rev up the spirit, those that tone, balance and regulate our bodily functions, and those which have a calm, sedative and tranquilizing effect.
We know that some fragrances can evoke strong emotional or psychological responses. They affect the cells of our nose, which send messages to the brain, which is then stimulated to release hormones and neuro-chemicals that bring healing changes in the body, and our psychological and emotional reactions. In Aromatherapy: Scent and Psyche, authors Peter and Kate Damian point out: "Olfactory research is still in its infancy�we are now gaining rudimentary knowledge of how and why essential oil fragrance affect human psychology and physiology."
