Officially named SARS-CoV-2, coronavirus is causing a major outbreak of respiratory illness (COVID-19). This coronavirus has now spread to more than 195 countries, disrupting commerce, transport, and other aspects of modern life for millions of people. It has significantly surpassed the number of people infected than the two most recent coronavirus-type epidemics combined, SARS in 2003 and MERS in 2012.
While scientists are working on a vaccination and hopefully a cure for COVID-19, this is still some way off. In the meantime, in searching for potential protective measures, a review of published, peer-reviewed data on the efficacy of Australian Tea Tree Oil as a potential anti-viral agent may be helpful.
These data are intended to provide formulators and manufacturers an understanding of the peer-reviewed, published scientific data available on pure Australian Tea Tree Oil and its anti-viral and virucidal properties.
These data do not suggest that any formulation containing pure Australian Tea Tree Oil will act in an anti-viral or virucidal manner. These data do not eliminate a manufacturer’s responsibility to conduct proper trials for safety and efficacy.
