Tea tree essential oil, with countless beneficial properties, is extracted from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia tree, originally from Australia, where the leaves of this plant are spontaneously harvested, which then undergo a delicate distillation process by the use of water vapour. Thanks to its curative and disinfectant properties, it is used both in natural cosmetics and in household cleaning. The essential tea tree oil of La Saponaria derives from a fair trade project in the Mount Kenya region, which promotes cultural and social initiatives such as the one aimed at literacy in rural areas.
