Australians have for a long time been familiar with the health benefits of the tea tree oil, using it since ancient times. The volatile hydrocarbons present in the oil are known to be aromatic and able to pass through the air, through the skin pores, and the mucous membranes. That’s why tea tree oil is widely used to destroy germs, combat diseases, and soothe skin conditions aromatically and topically.
