A Short Walk In The Grampians #19

Tea Tree...lovely stuff!

 

This hardy shrub has two main varieties...the Coastal Tea Tree. and the Inland Tea Tree.

 

Tea Tree has a significant commercial value...an oil extract from [I think] the bark is used as a natural antiseptic, and as a mildly astringent ingredient in many skin care products.

 

The Grampians is famous for its profusion of wildflowers, and this is the wildflower season...lots of white, pink, yellow and purple flowers are showing themselves as we stroll.

And a lovely photo of Lovely Na & the Lovely Tea Tree Blossom smile

Tea tree oil is the one safe killer of a horrible little bug that can take up residence on people's (and pets) eyelids.
Ray: Thank you, Elizabeth.

I did not know about the use of Tea Tree Oil in eye care.

The first time I have seen Tea Tree; it makes a lovely picture with Na admiring it. I swear by it as an antiseptic
Ray: Tea Tree is lovely stuff, Lisl, and its medical usefulness was learned initially from Australian Aborigines who may well have used it medicinally for thousands of years.
Magnifique portrait !
Ray: merci, Martine.

A very nice looking thing too. Tea Tree oil is well known in the uk
Ray: smile smile

I think Tea Tree oil has found its way to most countries now, Chris...it is certainly well known in Thailand.

Your model shows them off well. I use tea tree oil for its antiseptic value; I never stopped to consider where it came from. .
Ray: My model doesn't carry tripods, Alan, but does hold flars well.
A lot of smelly stuff and shower thingies have tea tree oil in them
Ray: This is so, Bill...stings a bit when it gets in your eye, too!

Na is doing a fine job of holding this up for your camera Ray.
Ray: You are correct, Chad...one of her manifold skills.
Apart from a nice picture of Na this is interesting because we have always got something or other with Tea Tree extract in it in the house.
Ray: Thank you, Brian.

Tea Tree oil does seem to be an ingredient in many products used for taking care of our skin.
Lovely wildflowers...
Ray: Thank you, Larry.
I use tea tree oil too and was amazed you could buy it along the side of the road in places in the country.
Ray: Tea Tree oil and Eucalyptus oil are both very popular products from Australian flora, Mary.
A lovely blossom - and the tea tree blooms are quite nice too smile
Ray: smile Thank you, Tom. smile
