A century ago, Australian scientists discovered that tea tree oil is a 100 times stronger antiseptic than carbolic acid, the most popular germicide at that time. The powerful antiseptic properties of the oil can treat numerous respiratory problems, from asthma to runny nose, besides treating rashes, burns, infections, dandruff, etc. It also disinfects surfaces and eliminates bacteria and mold.Tea tree oil is derived from the leaves of the tea tree.
The tea tree was named by eighteenth century sailors, who made tea that smelled like nutmeg from the leaves of the tree growing on the swampy southeast Australian coast.Tea tree oil is applied to the skin (used topically) for infections such as acne, fungal infections of the nail (onychomycosis), lice, scabies, athlete’s foot (tinea pedis), and ringworm. It is also used topically as a local antiseptic for cuts and abrasions, for burns, insect bites and stings, boils, vaginal infections, recurrent herpes labialis, toothache, infections of the mouth and nose, sore throat, and for ear infections such as otitis media and otitis externa.
