Product Abstract: Although the Tea Tree plant is indigenous to Australia, it is now grown in many parts of the world including China. The Chinese tea tree plant is a small shrub with needle-like leaves similar to that of the Australian variety. Considered less effective therapeutically, it is widely used in manufacturing of personal-care products and natural cleaners. Historically, the leaves were used as a substitute for tea, which is how it got its name. First used by the aboriginals in Australia, it has since become very popular oil and is used world-wide.
