Worldwide demand for the antiseptic oil distilled from the leaves has exploded over the past decade. The oil has proven antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties which makes it valuable for skin infections, burns, bruises, cuts, herpes, warts, yeast infections, gingivitis and many other conditions requiring a powerful antiseptic. Can be applied directly on sensitive tissues without irritation. Australian aborigines have long used the crushed leaves for skin infections. The English explorer Captain Cook brewed a spicy and refreshing tea from the leaves. Small tree or shrub with narrow bright-green leaves. Easy to grow in containers.
