Tea Tree Oil

Melaleuca Alternifolia - Tea Tree
Also called:
Microencapsulated Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia) oil is strongly anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-parasitic. Tea Tree oil is the second most antiseptic of all known natural substances, second only to thyme oil. It is eight times more effective than commercial phenol and seven times more anti-microbial than lavender oil.

The Australian Aborigine has a long history of Tea Tree used for many medicinal purposes involving the inhalation of the vapors from the raw crushed plant for respiratory infections and applying the raw crushed pulp to both fresh and infected wounds to stimulate rapid healing and new tissue growth.

Melaleuca Alternifolia oil is helpful for warts, blisters, ringworm, lice, nits, golden staphylococci infections, cold sores, herpes, thrush, and other conditions. It is intensely healing and soothing to herpes sores and will help prevent infection of the sore. Tea Tree oil safely disinfects and heals infected sores and wounds.

Tea Tree oil is a fantastic local immune stimulant and can help defend the body against skin-borne organisms. The presence of infection in a wound treated with Melaleuca Alternifolia oil seems to increase the healing effectiveness of tea-tree on the wound, probably as a direct result of its' immuno-stimulant properties.

Melaleuca Alternifolia oil is a good treatment for acne, ringworm, boils, ulcers, warts, tinea, and athlete's foot. It will also relieve the pain from painful insect bites and stings. Tea Tree oil can be fully effective for certain conditions in concentrations as low as 2.5% dilution.
