The Chinese variation of Tea Tree Oil is obtained through the distillation of the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia plant, much like the Australian Tea Tree Oil. It will also yield very similar characteristics to the Australian Tea Tree Oil.

There is a lot of misunderstanding around Tea Tree Oil from China, most likely because of the ambiguity surrounding the chemical qualities of the oil. Genuine Chinese Tea Tree Oil is very similar in properties and beautiful in its own way, but it is not much lower in price, only about 25%.


This product is supplied in 1kg and 5kg aluminium containers, 25kg fluorinated HDPE containers and 180kg metal drums.
