What is Tea Tree Oil?


Tea tree oil has been used the world over in the manufacture of cosmetics, as well as herbal supplements, that also include traditional medicines. As a remedy for coughs and colds, you will find Australian natives crushing the leaves of this tree and inhaling the oil produced.

While it may sound unbelievable, the tea tree leaves have eleven times more antimicrobial power than phenol and can be applied on wounds or soaked in infusions. Phenol was a substance widely used in the past to protect wounds from bacterial infections. After Arthur Penfold did a study on the plant's antimicrobial effects and later wrote articles on the same, production went into full force. During World War two production of tea tree oil took shape manually, but has of present become mechanized.

With its powerful antiseptic value that treats various skin ailments, insect bites, minor wounds and even ear infections, it is recommended for external use only since it can cause ataxia, drowsiness or even allergic reactions. Although this remedy is much slower than antibiotics in showing results, it is a very effective herbal remedy for the skin.

Benefits & Uses:
Tea tree oil uses are plentiful, although this pure essential oil is more commonly know for their skin care applications. There are over 98 different compounds in the native tree from the Northeast coast of Australia. All of these compounds play an important factor in the healing properties of tea tree oil, although 4-terpineol is directly responsible for this pure essential oil's antiseptic and antifungal properties. Because of the potent all natural chemical properties, different types of skin care allow for many tea tree oil uses.

Firstly, tea tree oil is produced through steam distillation of the trees leaves. This process leaves you with a very pure essential oil. One of the tea tree oil uses is for acne. The normal, prescribed treatment for acne is 5% benzoyl peroxide creams or lotions. There have been many studies conducted, which show tea tree oil is just as effective, although it might take a little bit longer. So, if you are looking for an all natural way to help relieve acne, then try tea tree oil.

Another use is for athlete's foot. Since the oil has anti-fungal properties as well, this condition makes another use for tea tree. If you have any sort of itching, or cracking, or toe nails yellow, or infected, then tea tree oil is just right for this. All you need to do is put the drops of oil between your toes and on your toe nails and rub it in. This should start to cure up within a couple of days.

If you ever have any burns, scrapes, or something like poison ivy, tea tree oil can help. The 98 different compounds help to provide all natural healing for any of these skin conditions. I have seen people use this for mild conditions of psoriasis to help gets rid of the itching. It does not cure psoriasis, as there is no cure, but it can help the small percentage of the population who suffers from psoriasis.

Dandruff is another condition tea tree can help with. You can either buy shampoo already with tea tree oil in it, or you can buy the pure essential oil and just add it to your own shampoo. I would recommend buying an all natural shampoo with tea tree oil in it. Regular shampoos have chemicals which naturally dry out your scalp. Natural shampoos will not dry your scalp or leave you with flakes. Go all natural if you want to be safe.

Conclusion:
There are many tea tree oil uses out there. With the antiseptic and anti-fungal properties, you are sure to find a good use for tea tree oil. And better yet, you are healing your body all naturally, which is always better for you, and keeps you in tune with nature.
