About Tea Tree (Ti-Tree) Essential Oil

bottle of tea tree oil with tea tree leaves

The Aborigines have used ti-tree for hundreds of years where leaves were crushed in the hand and inhaled when they felt the onset of colds, flu and illness.

Tea tree essential oil was first distilled in the 1920s in Australia and to this day, it is regarded as one of the most therapeutic essential oils available and a go-to when you are feeling under the weather, commonly from colds and flu.

Although there are several species that the name 'tea tree' applies to, it is Melaleuca alternifolia that is the one mainly associated with today's essential oil.

It is a small tree with paper-like bark (Paperbark is a synonym name for tea tree) that can often be peeled off the tree in paper like strips.

There is a significant level of scientific research associated with tea tree oil and it can be found in many soaps, disinfectants, mouthwashes, toothpaste and deodorant.

Our Commitment To Quality

Every batch of tea tree oil we receive is tested for purity and quality. Each batch of essential oil can differ, even from the same producer. Because essential oil is extracted from plants, it can be affected by many factors such as the weather, the seasons, and human error... a bit like fine wine.

This is why we carry out batch testing even if the batch is from the same supplier so we can guarantee consistent quality.

The farms we’ve chosen to work with consistently provide incredibly pure, high quality oils. We regularly review our producers with a stringent set of quality guidelines that we’ve developed in partnership with our industry experts and their 20+ years in the industry.

“Even an oil which is quite truthfully described as pure may be of poor quality, and therefore of less value therapeutically. IF AN ESSENTIAL OIL COSTS MUCH LESS THAN YOU WOULD NORMALLY EXPECT TO PAY FOR IT, the oil may well be a third or fourth distillate from a batch of plant material which has already yielded the greater part of its properties to the first or second distillation.”

About The Cultivation

Our mission is to provide you with the purest essential oils that contain the therapeutic properties you need to support yours and your family’s health.

Sometimes this means the oil is certified organic but acquiring an organic certification can be quite costly to farmers, which means many choose not to obtain it. Oils derived from plants that are organically grown or wildcrafted are still free from man-made chemicals despite not being certified. This means the oils can be of equal or better quality than comparable certified organic products and often at a lower price.

We also try our best to source single origin essential oils wherever possible.

How We Package Our Tea Tree Oil

Our tea tree oil is fresh off the still and comes in a 10ML blue glass bottle and is sealed to protect the precious oil within. The bottle also comes with an orifice reducer built in so you can dispense the oil one drop at a time.

During the shipping process, special canisters prolong and protect the quality of the oil from light and temperature during transit from around the globe and we ensure a quick turnaround time from producer to bottle, with minimal shelf time to maintain quality and purity.

We typically recommend storing your oil at or below room temperature in a cool dark place.

The Tests We Run On Our Oils To Ensure Quality

All of our oil is constantly tested for purity. The testing provides us with key data about what constituent compounds are in the oils and at what volumes.

Gas Chromatography (GC)

Gas Chromatography (GC) describes the analytical separation technique used to analyze volatile substances in the gas phase. In GC, the components of a sample are dissolved in a solvent and vaporized in order to separate the analytes by distributing the sample between two phases: a stationary phase and a mobile phase. GC provides us key data about what compounds are in oils and how much of each component is present.

Mass Spectrometry (MS)

Mass Spectrometry (MS) is an analytical chemistry technique that identifies the amount and type of individual molecules present in a sample by measuring the mass-to-charge ratio. A mass spectrometer has three essential functions: Ion source, Mass analyzer and the Detector. The Ion source is where the sample is ionized. Once the sample is ionized, the mass analyzer sorts and separates the ions according to the mass and charge. Once the ions are separated and sorted then the separation is measured in the detector where a results chart is displayed.

A personal message from our founders

Tea Tree is native to Australia and oil from certain producers here, continues to be best in class year after year. Scott emigrated to this wonderful country from the UK and now has the highest quality tea tree producers within driving distance. Here's what he said about sourcing a producer:

I was excited with the prospect of exploring new places on my doorstep while meeting the producers and sourcing the highest quality tea tree oil I could find. I actually think all the producers I met would yield a high quality oil, but then I met the owner of a farm whose passion for agriculture and oils was infectious.

As we walked in the hot, sunny afternoon in coastal Australia, he took the time to tell me his story while showing me their impressive operation from plant to bottle. I knew right then and there that we had found the right producer, pending oil sample test results.

I hope the passion of the producer and essence of the native origin of tea tree transpire in your experience of our oil. I hope the strong, fresh aroma gives you confidence that you are holding one of the purest tea tree oils on the market.

Ultimately we believe that an oil, like the business that stands behind it, should be ethical and be exactly what it says on the tin. That’s why we only use the highest quality tea tree, with the highest quality extraction methods, and shipped with the highest quality packaging.Kristan Markham Sacred Soul Holistics

It’s also why you won’t see us throwing around buzzwords that don’t mean anything, like “therapeutic grade” or “clinical grade.” When we describe our oils, we mean what we say.

We believe that the more you know about essential oils in general, the more likely you’ll want to become a part of the Sacred Soul community.

If for any reason you’re unsatisfied with our oil, I want to personally invite you to email me and let me know. I’ll be happy to refund your money within the first 90 days of your purchase.

I’m betting my business on the fact that you’ll be blown away by the quality and aroma of our organic tea tree oil.

Either way, thanks for stopping by our site and checking us out. We hope every interaction you have with us, in person, or online is positive and memorable. Feel free to drop us a note on our contact page if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback for us.

Dilution Guide


This guide is a general overview for oils that don't have a more restricted dermal recommendation and are considered safe for topical use with adults age 16+. It also doesn't account for any specific medical issues, medication or skin conditions. You should check with a medical professional or aromatherapist before use. Below are not recommended dosages. Never apply undiluted to the skin.

ALWAYS check the max dermal use for the individual oil/s or blend you plan to use. You should also consider your medical and skin conditions and take the advice of a qualified professional. Serious negative effects such as skin sensitization, irritation, burns and other issues could occur from misusing essential oils and products containing essential oils.

Patch test: For first time use, place a drop of diluted essential oil on a small area of skin such as the inside elbow. After application, be aware of adverse reactions for the first 24-48 hours.


General Use

See below for approximate dilution ratios and usage guidelines. These are NOT recommended dosages and you should always consult with a medical professional or qualified aromatherapist before use.

Always start with a low dilution.

  • 0.5% - 1% = facial, long term daily use or full body application
  • 2% = generally good for regular use
  • 3% = for specific localised concerns
  • 5% = short term specific concerns (max 2 weeks)
  • 10% = acute specific concerns

When measuring in 'drops', just be aware that the only way for true accuracy is to measure your drops using a digital scale because different oils can amount to a slightly different number of drops per ml. The orifice reducer in the bottle is also not a standard size so could differ between brands, which could affect the size of ‘a drop’ and therefore your dilution %. This table is intended as an approximate guide only.

Can it be used internally?

As a brand, we have taken the position that essential oils are for external use only and should not be taken internally. We therefore will never state that any essential oil is food grade as this indicates that it is fit for human consumption.

Can it be used in a diffuser/oil burner?

Yes it can! :)

Can you use direct on the skin?

No we never recommend that any essential oil is used direct on the skin. Always dilute with a carrier, even when using in the bath.

Can it be used to treat fungal infection, skin tags, acne (or any other medical condition)?

Due to legal restrictions, we are not allowed to make any medicinal claims about essential oils and their properties, even if there is scientific evidence that supports the claim.

Is it certified organic?

In the additional details section on the product page, you will see the cultivation listed in the attributes. It will state ‘certified organic’ and the program under which certification was obtained if the oil is certified organic.

Sometimes an oil will be derived from plants that have been organically grown but the producer doesn’t have organic certification (organic certification comes with a price that many producers choose not to obtain). This doesn’t mean the oil is of a lower quality and in fact the opposite can be true. The cultivation will state ‘organically grown’ if this is the case.

Wild-crafted/wild-harvested means that the plants have been harvested from the wild rather than a plantation.

Is it therapeutic grade?

Therapeutic grade is a term created to assist with marketing. There isn’t an official industry standard for therapeutic grade so we refuse to use this term.

Can it be used to make candles?

Yes it can! :)
