Australian Tea Tree oil is slightly expensive as it comes £5+ for just 30 ml, but bear in mind it's worth every penny. Tea Tree oil has so many diverse health, skin and antiseptic benefits and I think every household should have at least a small bottle of Australian Tea Tree oil. In the olden days people considered that it can prevent or cure anything but death.

The product you are getting is Optima Australian Tea Tree Antiseptic Spray 30ml, the product combines the antiseptic properties of Tea Tree Oil with Aloe Vera, Coconut Oil and Vitamin E in a non-greasy pump action spray.

Ingredients:
Caprylic/Capric triglycerides, Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree) leaf oil, Aloe barbadensis (Aloe Vera) leaf extract, Helianthus annuus (Sunflower oil), Cocos nucifera (Coconut oil) Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Limonene.

Directions for use:
Spray (one or two pumps) gently and liberally to the appropriate area as required.

History
There are more than 300 varieties of Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia of the myrtaceae family) however only one produces the oil with medicinal and antiseptic qualities. In 1732 Tea Tree's medicinal qualities was practically noted by Captain James Cook when was in Australia. He used it to brew the leaves of melaleuca alternifolia tree as tea thus named it Tea -Tree.
When Captain Cook studied the Aborigines he was impressed by the healing qualities of the Tea Tree, he advised the crew to drink tea especially to prevent scurvy (the lack of Vitamin C in the diet, a common condition affected the sailors). However, it was the Australian physician Penefold who popularized the many benefits of Tea Tree Oil through clinical studies, later in the 1930s Dr. E.M.Humphry discovered that the Tea Tree Oil's disinfectant action especially on typhoid bacilli was sixty times higher than that of ordinary hand soap.

Tea Tree Oil was the superstar of the antiseptic and medicinal qualities until the advent of the penicillin.

The Confusion
Sometimes people get confused with Manuka (honey) with Tee Trea Oil! According to Optima, "New Zealand' s Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium) and Australia' s Tea Tree (melaleuca alternifolia) are completely different species, the only similarity is that both plants have antiseptic qualities, also Manuka is often referred to as `Ti Tree' or `New Zealand Tea Tree' which is where the confusion arises." So before you buy this product make sure that you're buying the right one, Australian Tea Tree Oil spray for external use not Manuka honey or a by-product of Manuka honey.

Health and Skin Benefits
From acne to harsher skin diseases Australian Tea Tree oil is known to be beneficial. Acne, Athelet's Foot, yeast infections, eczema, dandruff, psoriasis, dry scalp, head lice infection are some of the skin conditions where Australian Tea Tree Oil is very useful. It's also a natural deodorant.

Tea Tree Oil heals sunburns and skin infections naturally. Excellent choice for toe nail fungus. Known to be effective in the treatment of warts. It is a popular home remedy in small cuts, abrasions, insect bites, and burns.
Some people add a few drops to a humidifier to relieve asthma or breathing troubles. Tea Tree Oil mixed with olive oil said to be effective in earaches.

Some people add a few drops to a humidifier to relieve asthama or breathing troubles. Tea Tree Oil mixed with olive oil said to be effective in earaches. Applying Tea Tree Oil after tattoos helps to avoid infection, use undiluted or mix with coconut oil. You can also spray with purified water.

Tea Tree Oil has great healing power when it comes to blisters, boils, bruises, gout, dry skin, bronchitis, calluses, corns, chapped lips, emphysema, thrush, muscle aches, sores, and pains, laryngitis, chicken pox, genital infections, inflammation, gum diseases, rheumatism, Seborrhoea, shingles, sinusitis, and the list goes on and on and on...

Other Uses
There are many other uses of Tea Tree Oil but NOT with this expensive 30 ml. If you are interested use the cheaper and larger quantities for other uses.

You can make an all-purpose antiseptic cleaner with Tea Tree Oil. You can use diluted Tea Tree Oil to remove ticks from your pet's skin or add a few drops when you clean the cages which keeps the fleas away. Using a few drops into the washing machine is good for giving a nice scent to the clothes as well as removing mildew.
Cleaning carpets and bathroom for fresh and germ free is another advantage of Tea Tree Oil. When you mix apple cider with Tea Tree Oil it is very effective against mould. Cotton balls soaked in Tea Tree Oil is used as an air freshener.

Internal Use
Tea Tree Oil should not be taken internally as it is toxic when taken internally. In case of respiratory problems or cold, Tea Tree Oil can be added to vaporizer so the vapour can be inhaled or add a few drops in a jar of hot water and inhale the vapour or steam coming out of it (use a tower to cover the head and the jar)

Side Effects?
Very rarely allergic reactions reported with the use of Tea Tree Oil. Rashes, dizziness, itching were reported, but very rare. Those who are allergic to myrtle family or Myrtaceae, (eucalyptus, clove, etc.) may be more likely to have an allergic reaction also those who are sensitive or allergic to turpentine may also can have same reactions. In short, Tea Tree Oil is generally safe with most people except those rare people with allergic reactions to myrtaceae family, should aware of the possible irritations.

Finest Quality
According to Optima, "Optima Australian Tea Tree uses only the finest Tea Tree oil, grown and harvested from sustainable crops in New South Wales. Most importantly, they do not buy their oil from the open market - they have strong links with Australian plantations themselves and that gives them the confidence of knowing they are getting only the best Tea Tree oil. Wherever possible Optima also use organic Tea Tree oil and other natural ingredients. When it comes to quality control, Optima ensure that each batch is rigorously tested in accordance with guidelines set by the Australian Tea Tree oil Industry Association. Their standards are so high that every drop of our oil exceeds worldwide industry standards."
Optima also assure the quality when they say: "Each batch of our Tea Tree Oil is manufactured to the high quality specification of the Australian Standard AS2782 and International Standards ISO 4730 and ISO 9002. Tea Tree Oil has been extensively studies and a total of 97 separate fractions have been identified, with Terpinen-4-ol being recognized as the primary active component. High levels of the component Cineole are generally thought to irritate mucous membranes and skin. Therefore the industry standards ensure that Terpinol-4-ol must be present at a minimum of 30%, and that the Cineole content must be less than 15%. The Australian Tea Tree Oil range of products are guaranteed to exceed these standards by consistently achieving Terpinen-4-ol levels of 38-44% and Cineole below 5%."

I believe them, the quality is really good, so I wouldn't mind paying a bit extra for the quality.

2 sprays from this killed a giant spider in my bathroom in less than 10 seconds - blighter barely managed to run more than 10 minutes before succumbing a very antiseptic death. This is super bugspray that is harmless to the skin, and clear coloured, and relatively odourless - great for spraying on clothes and bedding. I bought this to help deal with a persistent flea presence in the house, on top of the usual treatments and vacuuming - I have sprayed this all around my bed!

One thing to beware though, is if you have cats. Tea tree oil is highly toxic to cats. It is important to never spray this on or near your cats, or in the places that your cats tend to lie or rest on - you could spray it underneath their bedding, but not on top where it would come into contact with their fur and then they will lick it up when they groom themselves

I love this stuff. My little one struggles with bad nappy rash sometimes as a result of an intolerance. It cleared it in no time, where the prescribed cream did not do much. Both my kids love it as it does not sting and is very nice to put on. Leaves skin feeling soft.

Easy to use because it's in a spray.

Not much more to say about it... it does what it says on the bottle... it's Tea Tree mixed with some other stuff and you spray it...

I bought this spray to use on foot fungal infections that were itching like crazy. I applied it every night for three weeks and as needed for another fortnight, and the problem cleared up. I stopped using it about six weeks ago and the irritations haven't returned.

This turned up and it is not a spray at all, simply drip bottle tea tree. Tea tree itself seems good quality, but paid for a spray and disappointed not to get it.

Bought this, on recommendation, to ease to ease my dog's itching - it works. The lid was a little loose so the smell fills the house even when it's not in use!
