Tea Tree Oil is derived from the leaves of the tea tree. The tea tree was named by eighteenth century sailors, who made tea that smelled like nutmeg from the leaves of the tree growing on the swampy southeast Australian coast.

The Tea Tree should not be confused with the unrelated common tea plant that is used to make black and green teas. On the skin, tea tree oil has astringent and soothing properties.

Found in Potter’s Skin Clear Lotion.
