Clonal production of tea tree oil high in terpinen-4-ol for use in formulations for the treatment of thrush.


PMID 9830943

Abstract

A programme of evaluation and selection of superior trees has led to the vegetative propagation of highly productive clones which produce tea tree oil high in terpinen-4-ol. These will soon provide commercial quantities of a particularly active oil of consistent quality for use in formulations for therapeutic use and in particular for vaginal thrush.
