Man Found Standing Writes:
Melaleuca, Organic: Australia (Melaleuca quinquinervera)
Melaleuca is related to Tea Tree but is quite different and should not be confused. We generally consider it a more universal oil than tea tree, but each Melaleuca tree produces a vast array of chemical differences due to weather and soil conditions. Normally the cineole type of Melaleuca is used for healing where the nerolidol, linalool, and so forth chemotypes are mostly used in perfumery. Often this oil is sold adulterated so makes sure you purchase from a reputable supplier.
The tree has many, many uses and is highly valued by the natives of Australia. It grows in such abundance that cultivation is not necessary so almost all Melaleuca oil is from the Wild source. Some experts believe this oil to be the most important anti-allergenic essential oil in aromatherapy. We have found in small amounts this oil works wonderful, but the Black Cumin is far superior in its anti-allergenic action, however a large amount of the Black Cumin taken internally is required for healing.
