During World War II, anyone who produced tea tree oil as a profession was excluded from the draft until there was enough tea tree oil available for hospitals and to be placed in first aid kits for soldiers.
When Mother Nature creates a disease, it also creates a cure. While many diseases are found in the tropics, this is where tea tree is also found to cure them. Research shows that tea tree oil has many medicinally useful properties. It has become more frequent in this day and age due its amazing properties which we are excited to share with you.
