We get it, the names sound similar, but tea seed oil and tea tree oil are completely unrelated! Tea seed oil comes from the camellia flower (or tea plant) native to Asia, whereas tea tree oil comes from the narrow-leaved paperbark (or tea tree) found in Australia, which is a wholly different and distant species. Tea Seed Oil is used in cosmetics and cooking, while Tea Tree Oil is mainly used in aromatherapy.
