Tea Tree Oil Uses

One of the main ingredients of my henna mixture is tea tree oil. Tea tree oil has that fresh, mint-like smell that is invigorating to the senses.  Here’s some background information on tea tree oil and some tea tree oil uses : “Tea tree oil, or melaleuca oil, is a pale yellow color to nearly colorless and clear essential oil with a fresh camphoraceous odor. It is taken from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia.”

Tea tree oil uses extend to medicinal as well. The indigenous Bundjalung people of eastern Australia use “tea trees” as a traditional medicine by inhaling the oils from the crushed leaves to treat coughs and colds. Some sources suggest beneficial medical properties when applied topically, including antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiseptic qualities. The antiseptic properties can help in the fight against skin blemishes (acne). It also has beneficial cosmetic properties.


By using tea tree oil in my henna mixture, it actually adds a skin healing element to the lovely design you’ll receive. If you’re a fellow henna artist, I would suggest giving tea tree essential oil in your henna paste a try. Since there are so many uses for tea tree oil, it’s a win/win
