Did you know that?
The essence extracted from the leaves of the tea tree, Tea Tree oil, was used as a remedy by the first white settlers of the continent. In 1923, an Australian scientist, Dr AR Penfold, conducted a study and showed that tea tree oil was 12 times more potent as an antiseptic and bactericide than carbolic acid, the standard antiseptic of the time. After the First World War, the study of its application in medicine began, so much so that it was supplied, in 1939, to the Royal Australian Navy and the army.

In 1930, the Australian Medical Journal reported results obtained from applying tea tree oil, ranging from rapid healing of septic wounds to regenerating scars. In 1933, the British Medical Journal reported that this oil was a potent disinfectant, non-poisonous and non-irritating. In 1955, the United States reported that tea tree oil was actively germicidal and antiseptic.

In 1980, it was tested in Australia as a germicide against virulent organisms such as Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans. At 7, 21, and 35 days, the results reported no growth detected for any organisms. In 1983, it was tested by Foodstuff's Associated Laboratories in Australia as a bacteriostat. Using the swabs, the bacteria counted on unwashed hands were over 3,000 per 50 cm; on the hands after washing in distilled water they were over 2,000 by 50 cm; after washing with tea tree oil they were less than 3 by 50 cm.
