TeaTree Oil is an effective topical remedy for a broad range of conditions due to its many properties. Its antiseptic, antimicrobial and antibacterial effects make it a useful addition to any home medicine cabinet and first-aid kit. It can be used on cuts, scrapes and wounds to prevent infection.
Tea Tree Oil is also a common treatment for acne. It can be d iluted in a liquid soap and used as a facial wash, or it can be added to a lotion or salve and applied directly to blemishes. Comparing tea tree oil to benzoylperoxide for acne treatment, both treatments had a significant effect in clearing up the acne by reducing the number of inflamed and non-inflamed lesions(both open and closed). Tea Tree Oil may take longer to work initially than benzoylperoxide, but carries far less side effects such as itching, stinging, burning, and dryness. Acne is a localized infection, perfect for Tea Tree.
Used for athletes foot, nail fungus and yeast infections (both yeast and bacterial), Tea Tree Oil is just as effective as the topical antifungal Clotrimazole.
Clotrimazole is often prescribed by d octors to treat the above conditions, but is often irritating and can cause itching, burning, redness and swelling. Tea Tree
Oil is one of the most effective natural products for athletes foot, nail fungus and yeast infections. Combine with Oregano Oil for an even broader antimicrobial
For plaque, gingivitis or bad breath, Tea Tree Oil can be used as a mouthwash (dilute with water before using) to kill bacteria and reduce inflammation in the
mouth and gums. For thrush (Candida in the mouth), Tea Tree Oil can be diluted with water and used as a gargle. Many toothpastes have Tea Tree oil in amounts that are not effective. Add a bit more.
The Oils’ anti-inflammatory properties make it a good treatment for insect bites and stings. The swelling (formation of a red bump) that occurs with insect bites
and stings is an allergic reaction caused mainly by histamine. When applied Tea Tree Oil to bites and stings, significantly decreases the volume of
the weal or raised mark on the skin and reduces the swelling from histamine. Tea Tree Oil can help clear up dandruff (which is often times caused by a yeastlike fungus called malassezia) and head lice. Dilute Tea Tree Oil in shampoo or oil and massage into scalp.
