Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil, nature s Àrst aid kit in a bottle
The oil has been used for over a century for these purposes. The latest research shows that Tea Tree oil can even kill fungi.
Holding up four singed ¿ngertips in horror, I looked across to my mother, Irma Schutte, for help. I carried a hot dish straight from the oven to the table with my bare hands. Without uttering a word, she rushed to the bathroom and fetched the Thursday Plantation 100% Pure Tea Tree Oil. She moistened cotton wool with the oil, and covered each burnt ¿nger with a sort of thimble. As the oil touched my skin, the pain vanished. If I removed the thimble, the pain returned. For the next 12 hours I wore the Tea Tree thimbles. The next morning there was no sign of any burns no blisters, and no pain. A few days later the skin peeled and not a mark remained.
Thursday Plantation s Tea Tree products are as much a part of my life as sleeping and breathing. This wonderful range of products is available in South Africa today because my mom Irma heard about Tea Tree Oil. She read that it was an excellent medicinal-grade oil, and since 1995 we have been the proud distributors of Thursday Plantation in South Africa.
Tea Tree Oil is nature s ¿rst aid kit in a bottle. From head to toe for cuts, burns, sunburn, pimples, sores, mouth ulcers, gum problems, dandruff, head lice, fungal infections, insect bites, nail problems, vaginal problems Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil can help. It was the Dean family, founders of Thursday Plantation in Australia, who restored this indigenous oil to its rightful place. If it hadn t been for them, the Tea Tree might well have become extinct after the advent of chemical medications and disinfectants.
For years, stepfather Eric White pleaded with the Australian authorities to allocate some land suitable for Tea Trees to the family so that they could cultivate the ¿rst Tea Tree plantation. Four years later, it was on a Thursday that the government signed a 99-year lease and Eric founded the company known as Thursday Plantation .
The ¿rst bottles of Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil were sold 30 years ago to friends of Christopher and Lynda Dean at a Àea market. They sold seven bottles, complete with hand-made labels and carton information sheets. A month later those purchasers were back, buying bottles for their uncles, their sons and daughters, their grandmothers ... this time Christopher and Lynda sold 30 bottles, and they realised that the product could become a real success.
In an interview Lynda told me that she was ¿nally convinced of this when she was able to buy new pyjamas for all three of her children on the same day. The Dean s dream was and still is that every home in the world will have a bottle of Thursday Plantation Tea Tee Oil as nature s ¿rst aid kit in a bottle. This dream is slowly coming closer to reality.
Lynda told me how her eldest son visited his grandmother in Sydney at age ¿ve. He encountered a spiral plate stove for the ¿rst time in his young life. The plate glowed red with heat, and Lynda explained to him that it was hot and would burn him if he touched it. But when his grandmother switched off the plate, it stopped glowing. Christopher junior put his hand Àat on the plate, and it singed an agonising spiral on the tender skin. Lynda immediately applied Tea Tree Oil to the burn, and continued to apply it every few minutes. He went to bed with the oil on his hand, and when Lynda asked him the next morning how he was, he held up the wrong hand. His hand had recovered 100%. This wonderful product has been a lifesaver to the Dean family on many occasions.
There is a de¿nite difference in quality between Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil and cheaper commercial Tea Tree oils. In order to receive approval as Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil, the quality of the oil must be at least 20% higher than the industry standard.
Thursday Plantation has conducted research on their oil for many years. It has been proven that Tea Tree oil is antiseptic, antibacterial, antiinÀammatory and antiviral. The oil has been used for over a century for these purposes. The latest research shows that Tea Tree oil can even kill fungi. Because Tea Tree oil has become a sizeable export product of Australia, the Australian Tea Tree Oil industry and the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation conducted independent research to establish whether the oil is safe and can be used medicinally. The results speak for themselves, and interestingly much of the information was based on Thursday Plantation Tea Tree products.
It is good to know that something that means so much to me really has been proven to have the qualities I experienced. Studies on toxicity and safety are important when you use skin products. You must be sure that the product is harmless, because the skin absorbs substances good or bad. I can use Tea Tree Oil with complete peace of mind, knowing that it is good for me.

Because Tea Tree Oil has such remarkable properties, killing germs, viruses and fungi, it makes sense to ensure that you are protected on a daily basis. You ll ¿nd these organisms wherever there is a high concentration of people, for example in trains, buses, buildings, lifts, shopping centres, restaurants, hospitals, holiday resorts and aeroplanes no one should board a plane without Tea Tree Oil! A drop on the hands sanitises the skin, and if you cup your hands over your nose and breathe in deeply, your airways will also be cleansed and protected against the high levels of harmful organisms circulating in the cabin. A few drops of Tea Tree Oil in an aromatic vaporiser will give everyone in your home the opportunity to inhale it and gain the bene¿ts. Remember that the oil is excellent for steaming purposes if you are suffering from sinusitis, hay fever or a cold.
Tea Tree Oil and chemical medicines are not comparable. The oil contains several active ingredients that work together to protect you. Another interesting fact is that every harvest is different from the previous one. From year to year batches of Tea Tree Oil are therefore never exactly the same, so germs cannot develop a strategy to avoid the oil s antiseptic qualities.
