  • Why haven’t I heard about Melaleuca?

  • How did Melaleuca get its name?

    The namesake of Melaleuca: The Wellness Company is the Latin name for a specific plant native to Australia. Melaleuca alternifolia is sometimes referred to as the Australian Tea Tree plant. The essential oil of this plant has been regarded by the aboriginal people of Australia for millennia. In the twentieth century, its health benefits became more widely known in Australia. But it wasn't until 1985 that Melaleuca started to share the power of this unique compound to North America. Because this essential oil was the key ingredient in the early products of the company, it was named Melaleuca. As the company grew and added more natural products designed to improve health, the secondary name The Wellness Company was added.
