The Many Amazing Properties of Tea Tree Oil

April 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 172

Tea Tree oil is well known to be a good natural antiseptic treatment. But did you know that is also an anti-fungal and an anti-biotic? Here a just a few of the many things that it can be used to treat:

Herpes - around the mouth (It actually removes it for good - unlike many other pharmaceutical creams).

Impetigo - If caught early, Tea Tree oil may eradicate it.

Bad Breath - Yes, dilute 1 drop in a glass for water for a very effective mouth wash.

Ulcers - Again, dilute into a mouthwash and use 3 times a day.

Fungal Infection such as Athletes foot.


Insect Bites


Tonsillitis - I personally recovered from major Tonsillitis when I was stuck in the rainforest once - miles from a doctor. I had nothing but a bottle of Tea Tree oil and I made a full recovery. Before that I had been getting recurring tonsillitis nearly every year and always had to take antibiotics. After recovering without antibiotics however, and using only Tea tree mouthwash, I never got it again.

As you can see, Tea Tree is a bit of a wonder plant. I personally started using it for a mouthwash 2 years ago and since then very rarely get any mouth ulcers or tooth ache.

I'm not even trying to sell this stuff - I just really do believe in the power of it so much that I wanted to tell people about it.

Do be careful though as you should never swallow it and you shouldn't really put it onto an open wound unless diluted in a carrier oil. And also you need to be careful when making a mouthwash as the difference between 1 and 2 drops can be quite a shock! It does have a taste that takes getting used to. But after rinsing it out you do feel very fresh. When making mouthwash you can also add a drop of mint oil to make your mouth really fresh.

As an antibiotic it can effectively treat Impetigo. But be warned - unless you notice improvement within a week or if your condition get rapidly worse, you must go to a doctor immediately. Impetigo can very quickly get bad and cause your body to swell up. However if you catch it very early and rub Tea tree oil (diluted in a carrier oil) onto the infected area, it can heal within a few days.

Here in Melbourne, where I live, there are a lot of good Aromatherapy shops. So anyone in the area might want to check out a good list of all the Aromatherapy shops around here:
