The Tea Tree is a small tree or shrub with needle-like leaves. It can grow up to 20 feet in height and thrives in marshy areas, though it is now cultivated. The aboriginal people of Australia have long used Tea tree Oil. Historically, the leaves were used as a substitute for tea, which is how it got its name. In World War II, the producers and the harvesters of Tea Tree were exempt from military service until enough essential oil had been accumulated to accommodate the military's needs.
A middle note with a medium aroma, Tee Tree has a fresh, slightly medicinal scent with characteristic woody, camphoraceous notes.
