Product Description
Tea tree oil is known as Melaleuca oil and it is extracted from leaves of the tea tree, Melaleuca alternifolia, native to Australia.
Utilized largely for its antimicrobial properties, tea tree oil is incorporated as the active ingredient in many topical formulations used to support infection management. It is widely available over the counter in Australia, Europe, and North America and it is marketed as a remedy for various ailments [1]. Complementary and alternative remedies such as tea tree oil have become increasingly popular in recent decades. This essential oil has been used for almost 100 years in Australia, but it is now available worldwide both as neat oil and as an active component in an array of products [1]. The natural habitat of Melaleuca alternifolia is the Bungawalbyn region of north-eastern New South Wales, Australia and Drury (1991) reports that the Bundjalung Aborigines, who lived in this area, may have used Tea tree oil to support skin infection management by crushing leaves of the tea tree over the injury and covering it with a warm mudpack [15]. *
Product Benefits
Research suggests Tea Tree oil may also be helpful as a topical antiseptic for wound support, skin health, bacteria support, fungus support, vaginal health and natural healing support. *
  • Tea tree oil is used topically as an antiseptic that aids wound support [2]. Because of its healing properties, it was extensively used during World War II for skin injuries in munitions factory workers. *
  • Numerous laboratory studies have demonstrated the broad spectrum activity of tea tree oil for supporting bacteria, including MRSA (methicillin resistant Staphylcoccus aureus), fungi, viruses and protozoa [3, 4]. It may inhibit bacterial growth, including Mycobacterium avium, Escherichia coli, Haemophilus influenzae, Propionibacterium acnes, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus pneumonia and Brevibacterium species [3,14]. In vivo studies have demonstrated that the main bioactive ingredient in tea tree oil, terpinen-4-ol, is effective against the human pathogenic yeast that causes thrush, Candida albicans and filamentous fungi Aspergillus niger [3, 5]. Adherence and colonization of candida on denture soft liners are the most important contributing factor in the development of denture stomatitis. The addition of tea tree oil to denture soft liner significantly reduced the growth of C.albicans suggesting a new form of intra oral effective fungal management for denture stomatitis. Tea tree oil is the best mouthwash for preventing oropharyngeal candidiasis [10]. *
  • Anecdotal in vivo evidence indicates that tea tree oil may be effective in supporting vaginal health caused by the protozoa Trichomona vaginalis [3]. Tea tree oil caused a 50% reduction in growth (compared to controls) of the protozoa Leishmania major and Trypanosoma brucei at concentrations of 403 mg/ml and 0.5 mg/ml, respectively [11]. One of the main components of tea tree oil, terpinen-4-ol, supports the management of viruses by an interference with acidification of the intralysosomal compartment, thus potentially inhibiting viral uncoating [4]. *
  • The support of tea tree oil is observable in dermatological conditions such as acne, tinea pedis, subungual onychomycosis and toenail onychomycosis [8]. Demodex is one of the most commonly found ectoparasites in human. The tea tree oil eyelid scrub treatment is effective for eliminating ocular Demodex and improving subjective ocular symptoms [9]. Tea tree oil may also be beneficial for the healthy management human lice and their eggs and scabies [6]. *
  • In vitro and in vivo studies, including in humans, have demonstrated cell-calming properties of tea tree oil. A study in mice demonstrated the effectiveness of diluted tea tree oil (10%) in supporting skin health [7]. Numerous recent studies now support the anecdotal evidence attributing cell-calming activities to tea tree oil. In vitro work over the last decade has demonstrated that tea tree oil affects a range of immune responses, both in vitro and in vivo. The water-soluble components of tea tree oil can inhibit the lipopolysaccharide-induced production of the mediator's cell mass necrosis factor alpha, interleukin-1l and IL-10 by human peripheral blood monocytes by approximately 50% and that of prostaglandin E2 by about 30% after 40 h [12]. *
  • Erythema and flare associated with nickel-induced contact hypersensitivity in humans may also be supported by tea tree oil [13]. *
Nutritional Profile
Teat tree oil is composed of terpene hydrocarbons, mainly monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, and their associated alcohols. Terpenes are volatile, aromatic hydrocarbons and may be considered polymers of isoprene. The active composition of tea tree oil is terpinen-4-ol, l-terpinene, l-terpinene, 1,8-cineole, terpinolene, l-cymene, l-pinene, l-terpineol, aromadendrene, l-cadinene, limonene, sabinene, and globulol. Tea tree oil products may contain a range of chemical combinations containing over 98 compounds with terpinen-4-ol as the major component.
Suggested Use
Topic use - Topical applications vary from 0.4 - 100% oil formulation in clinical trials, depending on type and location of skin disorder, but a maximum of 15% oil formulation has been suggested to avoid sensitisation. 15% of 100% therapeutic grade oil is might be used to support skin infections and skin health.
Internal use should be avoided.
