The oil is a product of Australia, but it is bottled in the USA. It contains only melaleuca alternifolia, or tea tree oil, and is free of preservatives, artificial colors, fragrances, parabens, minteral oils, chemical solvents, and petroleum. That being said, it does have the natural scent of tea tree oil, which is a bit difficult for me to describe. I guess I'd say that it most closely resembles the scent of peppermint oil, but with more herbal notes.
As I said previously, I use tea tree oil to combat itchy scalp. I applied a two or three drops to my fingertips after washing my hair and then massaged the oil into my scalp, and it really does work! Not only does it feel amazing (it makes my skin feel all tingly when I apply it), but after just a week of using this the itch is pretty much non-existent. Since a little goes a long way, this bottle will definitely last me a long time. Also, the bottle has a stopper hole for the opening, so you don't have to worry about dispensing more than you need or wasting product.
Tea tree oil was traditionally used by aboriginal Australians to treat everything from common colds to abrasions. The Bundjalung Aborigines would crush up the leaves of the tea tree and inhale them to treat respiratory ailments, and more commonly would soak the leaves and use them to treat skin conditions. It's a potent antibacterial, and is still used today in many of the same ways. It can help with acne, eczema, and other skin conditions, as well as dental care and household cleaning.
