Dusting off Australian History at Emu Ridge

Our Wwoofers Lea and Heather kept our place spick and span! This is our historical area with all the old bottles we have collected and been sent by lovely visitors and our Aboriginal display of stones we have found on our property.  Heather who studied history, with help from Lea, has also restored the history folders we made many years ago when we first started! Can’t wait for the girls to come back next week to help us out over the holidays, they are potato picking at the moment — with Lea Mausi and Heather Williamson.

Australian Tea Tree Oil

What is Tea Tree Oil?

Tea Tree Oil is a volatile essential oil obtained by steam distillation of freshly harvested foliage of Melaleuca Alternifolia, one of about 200 species of Melaleuca indigenous to Australia. The oil is clear, colourless to pale yellow, with a characteristic odour.

The Curative Power of the Tea Tree

The versatile use of the Tea Tree has been well known to the Aboriginals for thousands of years. They made healing compresses of the leaf for wounds, cuts and skin diseases. For inside cleaning they ate some leaves, and the women changed their babies in Tea Tree bark to cover them from inflections.

Today the Australian doctors have rediscovered Tea Tree Oil as a cure against skin problems and many more. The oil possesses bacterial activity against a wide number of bacteria and fungi. A broad range of cosmetic, therapeutic, veterinary, household and industrial products include this oil for its healing powers with clinical trials proving the oil’s effectiveness.
