Cultures around the world have used essential oils for centuries to cure and treat various illnesses and conditions long before modern medicines were even thought of. The oil known as tea tree originates from the Melaleuca alternifolia tree which is native to Australia. The Aborigines have used this oil for hundreds of years to treat conditions ranging from common coughs to serious skin conditions.
Tea tree oil is known as a “must-have” health product for its wide range of medicinal purposes and sanitary qualities. Being antimicrobial, antifungal and antibacterial, tea tree is a great natural health product.
Tea Tree is a very potent natural antibacterial source. As you can tell by it being added to many mouth care products. It is able to kill just about any bacteria living in your mouth. Just by adding few drops of tea tree oil to a glass of purified water you can create a simple but effective mouth wash.
Tea tree being antimicrobial, antifungal and antibacterial makes it a great natural skin care product. It treats a wide array of skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, athlete’s foot, insect bites, cuts, rashes, or any other skin issue. By applying the oil on the affected area using a cotton bud/ball and allowing it to absorb for a few hours or ideally overnight, can be an effective way to treat and cure your conditions. The oil can also be diluted down with purified water if by itself is too potent for your skin.
All around disinfectant
Instead of using those chemical induced household cleaners that have ingredients that you can’t even pronounce or potentially harmful to your children, use a couple teaspoons of tea tree oil and 2 cups of purified water in a spray bottle and voila (French, “here it is” lol), you have an all around cleaner. Use it from your kitchen to the bathroom without ingesting or absorbing the harmful chemicals into your body.
