    Now for a little bit about this amazing oil...

    The popularity of Tea tree oil has increased in the last few years, but he history of the Melaleuca Alternifolia Is a n interesting one.  The orgins of tea tree oil and its vast diversity date back to the aboriginal Australians in New South Wales.  History indicates that tea tree oil has been used as a sort of catch all medicinal ingredient to treat a variety of ailment and injuries.

    This small tree has leaves that resemble pine needles and it is decorated with light purple or yellow flowers.  This tree has been known to grow more than twenty feet tall.  The Melaleuca tree is naturally sustainable and will grow again within two years of being chopped down!!  Simply amazing!!  The sustainability makes this tree Ideal for all natural healing, cleaning, and beautifying :)

    Extracting the oil from the tree leaf is quite complicated!  The entire process is done in two steps and takes hours to complete!

    Extracting the oil from the Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf is quite a 
    complicated process, which can explain why natural tea tree oil is such a hot 
    commodity. The process of extracting oil from tea tree leaves is essentially a two 
    step process. The first step extracts crude oil from the leaves and branches of the 
    Melaleuca tree through steam distillation. During this 2 hour process the leaves and 
    branches are drenched with steam in sealed stainless steel chambers. When the 
    contents have reached about 212°F (100°C) the combined oil and steam vapor 
    starts to rise and filters through a condenser. 
    Inside the condenser the mixture experiences a sudden drop in temperature, which 
    allows it to condense into a mix of oil and water. From there the oil & water solution
    passes through a separation chamber to extract the oil from the water, which gives 
    us the beautifully scented 
    and all-natural tea tree oil. 

    A little about the company that provides this amazing oil...

    Apothecary Extracts was founded in 2013 because, as consumers, we were tired of not knowing what was in our essential oils. There are so many vendors that dilute their essential oils, or use unsafe extraction processes which contaminate the final product. The only way to be sure what is in your essential oils is to test them. But the tests are expensive so most brands don’t want to pay for this. Or they don’t want you to know the results!
    We will only carry essential oils that we are 100% confident represent the best quality and potency available. And we’ll show you the test results to back it up.
