What Are Melaleuca Products?
Oil of Melalueca Inc. was founded in in 1984, soon after co-owner Roger Ball made a trip to Australia and learned about a healing plant used widely by the Australian Aborigines--the melaleuca or tea tree. However, the original business venture was shut down because of legal complications and rebranded as Melaleuca Inc. in 1985. Using the technique of multi-level marketing, Melaleuca Inc.sold a number of products based on the reported healthful properties of melaleuca oil. Now known as the Melaleuca Wellness Compnay, the line has expanded to items that do not contain any melaleuca oil.
