Used for years by the Bundjalung Aborigines until it was “discovered” by the Captain Cook of the British Navy in 1770.

After a report in 1920 saying that Tea Tree oil was more potent than carbolic acid at preventing disease, the Australian government issued all soldiers medical kits containing Tea Tree oil throughout World War 2.
