Where in Nicholasville or Lexington, Kentucky, can you buy tea tree oil?
The Gardener’s Answer
Hi, Erica: Most herbal and health food stores should carry tea tree oil. I found a couple of different places in Lexington that carry it: Good Foods Market & Café, 455 Southland Drive, their phone number is (859) 278-1813. GNC also carries it and they are at 2331 Nicholasville Road. Tea tree oil is derived from the foliage of Melaleuca alternifolia, an evergreen plant native to Australia. Originally it was used as a substitute for tea. The natives found it to be helpful in curing other ailments; it apparently has been used for many, many years to treat bacteria and fungal problems. It is now a common ingredient found in body care as well as aromatherapy products.
