An Oil Like No Other
Did you know? Melaleuca Oil contains more than 100 different compounds, some of which, like viridiflorene, are found nowhere else in nature.
Terpinen-4-ol and ceneole— the “T” and “C”
in the Melaleuca Oil brand name.
T stands for terpinen-4-ol Terpinen-4-ol gives Melaleuca Oil its antiseptic powers. T36-C5 Melaleuca Oil is 36% terpinen-4-ol, exceeding the Australian quality standard of 30%.
Cineole gives Melaleuca Oil its penetrating power. Too much cineole and the oil can be irritating. The “5” means that the oil is only 5% cineole—far stricter than the Australian quality standard, which allows 15% cineole.

How Melaleuca Oil Is Harvested
From tree to bottle, the process of harvesting Melaleuca Oil hasn’t changed in the last 100 years. It’s a 100% natural process and Melaleuca won’t do anything to modify the oil’s natural state. When Melaleuca Oil is harvested, nothing is wasted. The branches are used as fuel for the distiller. Ashes and used leaves are spread as mulch for the next growing season. And while the Melaleuca alternifolia trees are cut down to stumps, they grow back completely year after year.

Steam is used to distill the oil from the leaves.

A Melaleuca Oil Timeline
The discovery of a remarkable remedy
When British explorer James Cook landed in southeast Australia in 1770, he observed local Aborigines brewing the “tea tree” leaves as a tea. Impressed by the tea, he gathered leaves for the use of his crew throughout the remainder of his voyages.
In 1922, Australian chemist Arthur de Ramon Penfold brought new attention to the oil of Melaleuca alternifolia in a report to the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences in Sydney. The report hailed tea tree oil as effective in dealing with a variety of ailments.
The First Aid Kit in a Bottle
During the next few decades, tea tree oil production soared in Australia. During World War II, the oil was a staple of Australian soldiers’ first aid kits, and was dubbed “The First Aid Kit in a Bottle.”
Healing powers brought to the world
In 1985, a young company called Melaleuca, Inc. became the first to bring the healing, soothing powers of Melaleuca Oil to people all over the world.
