It can be used to combat inflammatory skin conditions, aid sleep and concentration and makes an excellent room deodoriser. A very useful insect repellent, it makes a great alternative to Citronella or Lemongrass.

Tea tree is a member of a highly aromatic family, the myrtacea family, including myrtle, bay laurel, and sassafras for a start. These plants produce fragrant oils that both speed skin healing and kill off any bugs trying to cause skin infections. Tea tree is an excellent alternative to antibiotic cream and one that should be used to replace those nasty creams. This member of the fragrant family is native to Australia. It was used by the aborigines to treat wounds, cuts and abrasions long before the white man happened onto those shores. When the convicts made their way to the outback, they quickly learned of the wound antiseptic uses of this native plant. Like many other members of the myrtaceae family. A relatively new oil at the turn of this century, tea tree oil gained popularity during the Second World War. It was used by the British Navy to keep wounds from becoming infected. Beyond this, it was used in ammunition factories in Australia to keep workers hands free from infection following factory accidents. Early in this century doctors learned that when one applied tea tree to a wound, it did not become infected.

Lemon Tea Tree Essential Oil is abundant in aldehydes, particularly citral (geranial and neral). As such, it is anti-microbial, possesses an intensely lemony aroma and is great for use in diffuser blends and for use in household cleaning formulations. It is a wonderful choice for use in helping to combat odors.

Tea Tree Essential Oil in Pharma

Tea tree oil was usually used  to treat minor cuts, burns, acne, athlete's foot, mild fungal nail infections, vaginal yeast infections, and lung problems (when they add the oil to a bath or vaporizer). Although there is little research on tea tree oil, some studies suggest that it is safe and often effective for the prevention and treatment of infections. Tea tree oil can kill bacteria and fungi. It comes from the evergreen leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia tree. Tea tree oil has been used as complementary therapy in surgery, burn care, and dental care. Numerous tea tree oil body care products are available, including soap, shampoo, toothpaste, lip balm, topical (used on the skin) cream, and essential oil.

Essence of Tea Tree Essential Oil

Aromatically, Lemon Tea Tree smells even more lemony than Lemon Essential Oil. Despite it's common name, it does not possess the strongly medicinal aroma that common Tea Tree Essential Oil has. It's a beautiful, crisp, citrusy oil that blends well with essential oils in the citrus, wood, floral, camphorous, and mint families. For emotional applications, Lemon Tea Tree Essential Oil is an uplifting, stimulating oil. When used in low dilutions, it can simultaneously help to calm fragile nerves and help with anxiety.

TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Safety Summary

·        Hazards Drug interaction; teratogenicity; skin sensitization.

·        Cautions (all routes) Drugs metabolized by CYP2B6.

·        Cautions (oral) Diabetes medication, pregnancy.

·        Cautions (dermal) Hypersensitive, diseased or damaged skin, children under 2 years of age.

·        Maximum daily oral dose in pregnancy 54mg

·        Maximum dermal use level 0.8%

Organ Specific Effects

·        Adverse skin reactions No information was found for lemon-scented tea tree oil, but skin sensitization is possible due to the high citral content.

·        Cardiovascular effects  Gavage doses of 10, 15 or 20 mg/kg/ day citral for 28 days, dose-dependently lowered plasma insulin levels and increased glucose tolerance in obese rats.

·        Reproductive toxicity Citral is dose-dependently teratogenic because it inhibits retinoic acid synthesis, and this can affect fetal development.

 

Systemic Effects

·        Acute toxicity No information found. Citral is slightly toxic: acute oral LD50 in rats 4.96 g/kg. Dermal LD50 in rabbits 2.25 g/kg

·        Antioxidant/pro-oxidant activity Leptospermum petersonii oil exhibited high radical scavenging activity in both ABTS and DPPH assays.

·        Carcinogenic/anticarcinogenic potential No information was found for lemon-scented tea tree oil, but it contains no known carcinogens. Citral and citronellal display anticarcinogenic activity.

·        Drug interactions Antidiabetic medication, because of cardiovascular effects, above. See Table 4.10B. Since citral and geraniol inhibit CYP2B6, there is a theoretical risk ofinteraction between lemon-scented tea tree oil and drugs metabolized by this enzyme.
