Planters, as well as some personalities associated with the tea industry, have decided to send across a clear message to the people as a section of tea lovers 'emotionally' speak about Tea Tree Oil (TTO). People think that the TTO is produced from the tea plant. TTO, an essential oil, is used to take care of some health problems and producers campaign that it functions in 14 cases, especially skin diseases. General Manager, Denguajhar Tea Estate in Jalpaiguri, JC Pande, says that the TTO name itself is a misnomer and that it has nothing to do with tea. “It is extracted from some plant, which is not from the tea family,” he says.
