Tea Tree Hydrosol

The aroma of Tea Tree Hydrosol is similar to that of diluted Tea Tree Essential Oil, but it is lighter and fresher smelling. I find the hydrosol to be a bit less medicinal smelling than the essential oil.

Botanical Name: Melaleuca alternifolia

Aromatic Strength: Medium

Shelf Life: Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications: Not surprisingly, Suzanne Catty reports that much like its essential oil counterpart, Tea Tree Hydrosol is "antiseptic, antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral." She adds that it is mucolytic and acts as an expectorant and can be helpful for congestion. Topically, she suggests its use for cleaning cuts and wounds and that it may be helpful for psoriasis and fungal infections of the nail. [Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy (Rochester, VT: Healing Arts Press, 2001), 109.]

Len and Shirley Price report that the Tea Tree Hydrosol that they analyzed consists of 93-94% alcohols and possesses the following properties: "antiinfectious, antiviral, bactericidal, decongestant, stimulating..." "antifungal, antiirritant, antiseptic, expectorant, mucolytic." [Len Price and Shirley Price, Understanding Hydrolats: The Specific Hydrosols for Aromatherapy: A Guide for Health Professionals (London: Churchill Livingstone, 2004), 123.]

Safety Information: Read AromaWeb's Hydrosol Safety Guidelines.
