Olfactive Description: Woody, Citrusy, Floral, Powdery, Camphor

Tea Tree essential oil comes from the leaves of the—you guessed it—tea trees. Also known as melaleuca alternifolia, this tree grows along the southeast Australian coast. Tea Tree essential oil is an uplifting standalone scent, but also makes some of our favorite spa and relaxation blends.

This multipurpose essential oil brings a spa vibe to all your creations. Tea Tree essential oil is approved for use in relaxing candles, wax melts, and tarts. Don’t forget to try it out in bar and liquid soap, scrubs, lotion, and perfume.

Candle Maker’s Notes:
Tea Tree essential oil stays true to its out of bottle scent when burning. With a moderate throw in soy wax, it adds a relaxing accord to handmade blends.

Blends Well With: Lavender (Bulgaria), Lemon, Vetiver (Hatian), Peppermint

Fragrance Wheel Family: Aromatic

Vibe Check: Balancing, Uplifting, Refreshing

Suggested Colors: Ivory, Light Green

See our complete list of candle making dyes and soap colorants.

Storage Tip: Best stored refrigerated away from food products or in a cool, dark place.

Returns: Essential oils can only be returned with an unbroken, original seal on the bottle.

*Note: We used the maximum allowable IFRA usage rate of 1.61% to test this oil We did not experience any acceleration or separation. This one was very slow to reach a light trace. We gave up on trying to reach a medium trace when the stick blender began to overheat. After 24 hours, the soap was too soft to unmold, so we waited another 48 hours before unmolding. We observed a light purple ring of discoloration about ½” (13 mm) into the bars, but there were no signs of going into the gel phase. The scent was not a powerhouse, but given the low usage rate it was still strong. After 30 days, the purple color was gone, and the bars had a uniform light tan discoloration. The scent was milder but still had the zesty, punchy smell of tea tree oil.
