In 1770, after landing in Botany Bay, Captain James Cook continued his exploration north through the coastal regions of New South Wales.
During this journey, he and his botanists noted huge groves of trees with sticky, aromatic leaves. They observed the local Aboriginals drinking a brew from the leaves of this tree and applying a tincture of salve on wounds with paperbark.
The name ‘Tea’ Tree was born.
Tea Tree has an abundance of uses in health products.
