The magical properties of tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) have long been used by the deeply mystical Australian Aborigines.  They have used tea tree for both its medicinal and ceremonial powers and tea tree’s ability to cure various spiritual ailments.  The Aborigines claim that water and land around the areas where tea tree grows have healing powers.

As a general rule, tea tree has magical and spiritual powers that can heal, cleanse, provide magical protection, repel negative energy, overcome psychic infections, cure spiritual ailments, and provide assistance in entering and exiting the dream state.

Tea Tree Oil Magical Properties

  • Tea tree is known as the “herb of the angels” because it has so many spiritual uses.
  • Most of the time when you are going to use tea tree for magical or spiritual purposes, you are going to use tea tree essential oil, not the plant itself.
  • Tea tree essential oil is sometimes referred to as “liquid sunshine” because of its ability to brighten your mood.  
  • The vibration of tea tree is considered part of the air and earth elements. 
  • Tea tree is neither feminent nor masculine, but somewhere in the middle.
  • Tea tree is associated with both the planet Mercury and the moon.

In 1995, at the Tea Tree Oil National Conference, Dr. Alan Twomey told a story that was handed down to him by the Bundjalung people of how the Gods of the earth gave the legendary Princess Eelamani of the Bundjalung people special seeds for her to plant along a forest trail during a long journey she was going to undertake. 

Over eons of time, the Bundjalung people came to learn of the magical qualities of this wonderful gift from the Gods.  Here is a brief summary of those magical qualities.

Magical Healing Properties Of Tea Tree

You can use tea tree in your healing rituals.  Add tea tree oil or tea tree leaves to your healing charms and pouches to encourage its healing properties

Keep in mind that every culture has different healing rituals, so use what works best for you.  A ritual can be something as simple as a routine that one follows on a regular basis such as citing words of power or as complex as creating a protective circle or burning herbs in a brazier or cauldron at a specific time or place.

Besides its magical healing powers, studies have shown that tea tree oil has natural antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral, and antifungal properties.  

Because of these properties, tea tree is good to use around someone who is ill to help clear their aura.

Magical Cleansing Properties Of Tea Tree

Tea tree can be used to cleanse the air around you and for aura cleansing. 

Your aura is an electromagnetic field surrounding your body like your own personal song.  Sometimes that field can become corrupt with negative energy.  To use tea tree to cleanse your space and aura, add 24 drops to an 8-ounce spray bottle.  Spray around your body to allow the tea tree to slowly cleanse the area of negative energy and bring your aura back to its correct frequency.

As an alternative, as part of a cleaning ritual, you can add tea tree oil to your bath to cleanse and rejuvenate your entire body.  This cleansing ritual may be performed prior to performing a protection ritual.

Magical Protection Of Tea Tree

Tea tree oil can be burned or rubbed on the body (diluted with a carrier oil) to help protect you from dark things. 

Use tea tree essential oil in a diffuser to dispel dark energies and entities from your home.  You can also rub the oil on a favorite talisman or amulet to provide protection and cleanse that object.  And finally, tea tree can be used to protect you from hexes.

Tea tree can be a part of building your psychic shield to protect you from ghosts, demons, uncontrolled urges of the mind, and other things of the dark.

Repel Negative Energy With Tea Tree

Tea tree oil can be used to repel negative energy. 

Sometimes you may feel that nothing is going right or maybe some bad vibes have attached themselves to you or your property.  Use tea tree essential oil in a diffuser to purify the space around you and drive out the negative energy.   

You will usually do this in combination with other rituals such as sprinkling the area with salt water, using incense, candles, bells, and chanting.  The goal is to banish the negative energy from all things that could give that negative energy either ingress or egress from your space.

Place a few drops of tea tree mixed with camphor in the corners of your room (or place a few drops on cotton balls) is a great way of keeping negative energies away from your space.

Overcome Psychic Infections Using Tea Tree

Tea tree can be used to provide protection from psychic vampires.  Some people can intentionally or unintentionally take energy from you. 

When too much energy is being taken, the target of the psychic vampire can feel physically exhausted.  Tea tree oil can be used to balance out the energies between the psychic vampire and the victim.  Diffusing your essential oil or wearing a few drops will help create an ambiance of protection and help to pull back the aura field of the psychic vampire. 

Cure Spiritual Ailments With Tea Tree

Tea tree can be used to cure ailments caused by supernatural forces.  Spiritual ailments can be caused by disharmony, fear, and soul loss. 

Over time, tea tree can slowly help to dispel these ailments from the human body. Tea tree helps the body to find that which is beneficial and get rid of that which is not beneficial.  Use a few drops of tea tree oil on your body or use a diffuser. 

Combined with salt, tea tree makes an excellent scrub to cleanse you of various spiritual ailments.

Enter Or Exit Dream State Using Tea Tree

Tea tree has been used by shamans to successfully enter and exit the dream state and return with the knowledge they seek. 

To try to enhance your ability to remember your dreams, try diffusing tea tree essential oil when you go to sleep.

Other Magical Properties of Tea Tree

Tea Tree essential oil can be used to clear your upper chakra or crown chakra. 

The crown chakra is the most spiritual chakra of the seven chakras.  Located above the crown of the head, the crown chakra acts as your center of spirit, enlightenment, wisdom, universal consciousness, and connection to higher guidance.

When your crown chakra is out of balance, you can feel antsy, depressed, narrow-minded, isolated, and have difficulty concentrating or meditating. 

To help clear your crown chakra, diffuse tea tree essential oil while visualizing a bright white or violet light pouring into the top of your head

Consider using ear plugs while doing this to help achieve silence while you meditate and visualize the light.

What Does Tea Tree Oil Smell Like?

The smell of tea tree essential oil can vary and for some people, tea tree essential oil is not a pleasant smell.  

The smell can change depending on what variety of trees the essential oil is derived from.  Most tea tree essential oil is derived from the Melaleuca alternifolia tree.

When tea tree oil is derived from the Melaleuca alternifolia tree, the oil usually has a fresh, slightly sweet scent that is similar to a mix of eucalyptus and peppermint.

To save money, some companies may derive tea tree essential oil from other varieties.  Some of these varieties may give tea tree essential oil a turpentine type of smell.

Unfortunately, tea tree essential oil is one of the most adulterated essential oils on the market.  Some unscrupulous suppliers may dilute tea tree essential oil with other chemicals, including turpentine, which further adds to the unpleasant smell.  Some estimates place fake tea tree oil as high as 50% of all the tea tree essential oil sold on Western markets.

The following brands of Tea Tree essential oils have been known for offering pure unadulterated essential oils.
