The Aborigines have been using this indigenous Australian tree in medications for centuries. English soldiers found it in their military’s first aid kits in WWII. Today, Tea tree oil is often used in surgical & dental practices and is accepted internationally as an effective disinfectant, fungicidal, bactericidal, and virucidal. Tea Tree oil is used to treat acne (applied undiluted), dandruff, oily skin, rashes, insect bites, cuts, burns, infected wounds or simply to maintain clear healthy skin. With its typical head-clearing, woodsy-fresh, slightly medicinal aroma, Tea Tree oil is a very powerful immune stimulant, helps fight infections of all kinds & helps clear the skin. It is active in all three varieties of infectious organisms: bacteria, fungus, and viruses. It can help with influenza, cold sores, and gingivitis. Tea Tree oil could also help clear abscesses, burns, herpes, and oily skin; also valuable for athlete’s foot, cold sores, blemishes, diaper rash, warts, and infected wounds.
