MELALEUCA ALTERNIFOLIA. Worldwide demand for the antiseptic oil distilled
from the leaves has exploded over the past decade. The oil has proven
antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties which makes it valuable for
skin infections, burns, bruises, cuts, herpes, warts, yeast infections,
gingivitis and many other conditions requiring a powerful antiseptic. Can be
applied directly on sensitive tissues without irritation. Australian aborigines
have long used the crushed leaves for skin infections. The English explorer
Captain Cook brewed a spicy and refreshing tea from the leaves. Small tree or
shrub with narrow bright-green leaves. Easy to grow in containers.
