Benefits of Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil contains properties that make it an effective means to cure the three types of infectious organisms. Those three organisms are fungus, bacteria, and viral. An even more impressive feat of Tea Tree Oil is its’ effectiveness fighting those infections that are resistant or have become resistant to many antibiotics. This factor makes Tea Tree Oil an excellent natural remedy for numerous bacterial and fungal skin ailments.  Just a few examples of those ailments are acne, oily skin, blisters, sun burns, athlete’s foot, rashes, insect bites, and dandruff.

This natural cure has been proven in many studies to help treat respiratory problems that range from a sore throat, cough, and runny nose to more severe conditions such as asthma, tuberculosis, and bronchitis.  Viral infectious diseases like chicken pox, shingles, measles, and the flu are also shown to be effected by using Tea Tree Oil. The body’s immune system is strengthened by Tea Tree Oil and that alone helps the body fight the infections.

One of the most effective uses of Tea Tree Oil is as a mouthwash. It kills the bacteria in the mouth that causes gingivitis and helps reduce inflamed gums. Sometimes when we have gone to the dentist our mouths become inflamed and irritated and Tea Tree Oil can reduce that irritation and inflammation.

The effective use as a mouthwash is not the only beneficial means it can be used as. Many skincare products can effectively use the benefits of Tea Tree Oil. Ranging from acne specific treatments to general hygiene products, Tea Tree Oil shows a versatility and effectiveness not equaled by any.

Shampoo is one of the venues that allowed Tea Tree Oil and its’ benefits to become better known.  Its effectiveness against dandruff and dry scalp allowed those that have known the benefits of it for a long time to have their voices heard.  Tea Tree Oil has also been used in handmade soaps, crèams, and lotions.

Sometimes when we treat ailments with manmade medicines they tend to have side effects that outweigh the benefits.  Tea Tree Oil based antiseptic solutions, creams, and ointments can work just as good or better without those side effects. Some other medicinal treatments commonly available are for Athlete’s foot, sore muscle/arthritis, and chest rubs. Higher concentrations of Tea Tree Oil can help heal canker and cold sores, treat nail fungus, blisters, and ringworm. There are also Tea Tree Oil creams that can be used to treat minor burns, rashes, insect bites and sunburns.
