Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil
Sanitize and soothe with the natural healing power of Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil. This pure, organic essential oil is a rich source of plant-based bioactive compounds, which provide antiseptic, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory benefits. It’s a must-have oil for skincare, home cleaning products, first aid, and more.
Rocky Mountain Oils’ Organic Tea Tree oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia bush, which is native to Australia and has been used for generations in traditional medicine. It presents a bright, herbaceous aroma that smells clean and uplifting, with a top-middle fragrance note that offers a hint of cooling menthol and soothing eucalyptus.
Organic Tea Tree essential oil is high in terpenoids, a class of natural phytochemicals that are antiviral, antibacterial, and antioxidant. Thanks to these terpenoids, organic Tea Tree helps reduce inflammation and support the immune system. It helps treat chronic pain, swelling, joint stiffness, minor wounds, and strains and sprains. Additionally, organic Tea Tree oil helps with respiratory illness and congestion.
Try diffusing this essential oil to help boost your immunity against colds, flu, and other viruses, or dilute it with a carrier oil and massage into the soles of the feet. Other organic Tea Tree essential oil benefits include repelling insects, purifying the air, and reducing anxious thoughts.

Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil FAQ
What does organic Tea Tree essential oil smell like?
Organic Tea Tree oil has a clean, sharp, medicinal aroma that’s herbal and has a slightly cooling, menthol-like undertone. The scent is reminiscent of Eucalyptus, but gentler and less camphorous.
Can you use Tea Tree essential oils for skin?
Yes! Many people use organic Tea Tree oil for skin care, healing minor cuts and abrasions, and more. Thanks to its powerful antiseptic, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties, organic Tea Tree oil helps sanitize and prevent infection while healing skin. Use it for acne and blemishes, bug bites, dry skin, inflammation, swelling, rashes, and more. However, pure organic Tea Tree can be very strong, so it’s important to dilute this essential oil in a carrier oil prior to topical use. Click here to learn about dilution rates.

Yes! Organic Tea Tree essential oil can be used as a natural, DEET-free insect repellent to keep away pesky bugs like mosquitoes, flies, ticks, fleas, spiders, and more. Although we enjoy the clean, crisp aroma of Tea Tree, bugs can’t stand it and will stay away. Try diffusing organic Tea Tree essential oil on your patio, deck, or camping site for outdoor fun without the pests. You can also use this essential oil to make DIY bug-off candles or dilute with water and spray on skin, clothes, and hair.
Is it safe to clean with organic Tea Tree oil around pets?
Organic Tea Tree essential oil may be toxic to pets if ingested. If you are using this oil in a home cleaning product, make sure to keep your dogs, cats, and other animals away from the area until the product has been wiped away, rinsed off, and completely evaporated. Do not use Tea Tree oil cleaning products on any items that your pet may chew or lick.
If diffusing, keep the diffuser away from your pet’s bed, food and water bowls, litter box, crate, or other common areas and do not allow your pet near the direct line of mist. Always diffuse in an open, well-ventilated area with plenty of airflow.
