There are 236 known species of Tea Trees, 230 of them native to Australia. For thousands of years, the Australian Aboriginal people have been using the leaves of the melaleuca tree for medicinal purposes. But the incredible properties of this tree were unknown to the rest of the world until the 1920s, when Dr. A.R. Penfold discovered that the oil was 12 times more potent than carbolic acid, then being used as an antiseptic. It was his discovery that eventually put this oil into every first-aid kit in the Australian armed forces during World War II. Tea Tree Oil is continually being researched, with scientists continuing to discover new and exciting finds about its components.
