Throughout history, tea tree oil has been used for many therapeutic and medicinal purposes. According to belief of the Aboriginal people of Australia, tea tree oil has amazing magical healing powers. There is even a tribal legend about the hidden treasure of the tea tree, which is described as an enchanted lagoon where the leaves of the tree were soaked after falling in, infusing and enriching the waters. In order to get all physical and mystical benefits that the waters possessed, the village people should immerse themselves in the natural herbal bath. When the Australian Aboriginal people have long recognized tea tree as multi-faceted healing oil, the rest of the world thought it was just a weed. For a long time Aboriginal tribesmen used tea tree to cure infected wounds and reduce poisons in the system (especially those given by spider bites), tea tree was only recognized by Western cultures in the early 1900s.
