Tea Tree water Melaleuca alternifolia
bot. Melaleuca alternifolia
For oily, acne-prone skin.
Tea tree water or hydrolate. This hydrosol is obtained by steam distillation of the dried leaves of the myrtle tree (tea tree).
Old Australians call it 'the tree of thorns' or 'snow in summer'. The name Melaleuca was given by combining two Greek words: "melos" for black and "leukos" for white. It was named tea tree by Captain Cook in the 18th century when he and his companions, who had landed in eastern Australia and opened the way for white settlers, were treated by the natives to a decoction of this plant with its miraculous healing properties.

Hydrosols are ideal for the skin, especially the face skin, care. They can be used as a component of creams, lotions, cleaning milks, masks as well as by oneself as skin refreshing means, tonics and moisturizers.
Tea tree hydrolat acts in a similar way to the essential oil of these plants – it is a powerful hydrolat for oily, acne-prone skin.
Use the hydrolate for skin care:
Natural face care is unthinkable without hydrolats. They are sprayed on the skin as soothers, tonics or moisturisers. We use hydrolats in ALL of our creams, emulsions and shampoos instead of plain water.
- as a facial mist and tonic – spray on the face and allow to dry without wiping; spray on the skin as soon as you feel it needs it: pamper your face at least a few times a day if you are in air-conditioned rooms, on hot summer days, after sunbathing; allow to soak and dry by itself;
- as a moisturiser – spritz your face and apply cream or oil without waiting for it to dry;
- as a cleanser – wash your face with the hydrolat in the morning, especially if your skin is sensitive to tap water. Spray liberally over the face, wiping with a wet tampon (does not remove make-up); spritz over the face to complete the make-up removal procedure; allow to dry naturally to allow the skin to soak up the plant's wonderful bioactive compounds;
- there are no restrictions on use;
- store in a dark, cool place tightly closed;
CAUTION! Temperatures of 0°C and below may be hazardous to the hydrolat. At these temperatures, we recommend that you purchase your hydrolats in store, as parcel services cannot always provide optimal conditions for product transport.
