Tea Tree Therapy
Here’s a history lesson for you: When Captain Cook landed in Australia in the 1700s, he noticed the Aborigines brewed leaves in water to use as a medicinal treatment. He assumed it was tea, and gave the plant a straightforward moniker: the tea tree. Over the years, Captain Cook learned the tea tree offered many uses, including topically treating skin issues and cleaning cuts as a natural antiseptic. Today, tea tree oil continues to be prized for its antiseptic properties and is used in essential oil blends, skin treatments, and more. Continuing the tea tree’s legacy, Tea Tree Therapy uses this ingredient in all of its products (almost 30 in total) that help you stay healthy from head to toe.
The History of Tea Tree Therapy
Tea Tree Therapy was founded in 1997 by Ed Heftman and Suzanne Dean, who wanted to provide everyone with a natural antiseptic option. The company sources oil directly from Australian plantations, and has strict quality control measures in place to ensure the tea tree oil is the best available. In 2009, Tea Tree Therapy joined forces with Refreshed Lemon Myrtle to expand its offerings, and in addition to its sought-after tea tree products, now offers lemon myrtle as a key ingredient as well. This rare plant grows in Australia’s Byron Bay and is known for its fresh scent and antimicrobial properties.
