In order to be classified as a “Select” essential oil an oil must be all natural and a truly exceptional quality that is difficult to duplicate. Terpinen-4-ol is the component of Tea tree oil that is credited for most of its anti-infective benefits. Through a modified steam distillation process this producer is able to extract higher than normal levels of terpinen-4-ol.
Tea Tree is also a fragile oil. Terpinen-4-ol can become toxic after exposure to sunlight and the oil oxidizes rapidly. Extra care is given to this oil to minimize exposure to heat, air and sunlight so we may offer this truly exceptional oil.

Tea Tree Essential oil is one of the most popular oils in aromatherapy and traditional medicine today. It is produced from the leaves of a small tree that originally grew in low lying wetlands on Australia's east coast. The leaves had been used for unknown ages by the Australian aborigines to treat injury, illness and infection. Today quality oil is mass produced on plantations to provide plentiful low cost oil for sales worldwide.
Tea Tree oil has a reputation for being powerful against a broad range of bacterial, viral and fungal infections. Aboriginals used to crush the leaves in their hand and inhale the oil to treat colds and headaches. In the 1920's Tea Tree leaves were first distilled to produce the essential oil. It was quickly discovered the oil was a more powerful germicide than many that were in use and it was quickly cultivated. By World War II, Tea Tree oil farmers were exempt from military service until sufficient stock of Tea Tree essential oil were produced.
