The oils in the tea tree oil are able to pass through skin readily and have the same effects on the liver as turpentine (and turpentine was at one time used as a medical treatment also and was no longer considered acceptable for the same reasons as it readily caused liver damage).
While the liver can regenerate damaged sections, if there is significant scarring from the damage then the function of the liver can be impaired (sometimes significantly) even though the tissue has recovered.

Yes I am the same Ed as on caudata and dendroboard.
