Tea tree oil is the most sought after and recognized oil in the cosmetics industry…reasons are clear and wide…the various properties of this oil which cannot be found in possibly any other oil…And in fact no other oil can compete with its qualities…

Tea Tree Oil (also known as Melaleuca) is a natural antibacterial disinfectant that was commonly used as a general antiseptic by the aborigine tribes for thousands of years. More recently, the scientific community has confirmed that Tea Tree Oil has tremendous medicinal benefits. It is a light yellow oil that has a scent similar to nutmeg, and it is produced by steaming tea tree leaves and then squeezing the oil out.

Tea Tree Oil has wonderful properties that makes it a popular natural agent for curing all three types of infectious organisms: fungus, bacteria, and virus. More importantly, it is known to effectively fight a number of infections that are resistant to some antibiotics.

Studies have shown that Tea Tree Oil also treats respiratory problems ranging from common sore throats, coughs and runny nose to severe conditions such as asthma, tuberculosis, and bronchitis. The anti-viral properties of the oil fight many common infectious diseases such as chicken pox, shingles and measles, flu, cold sores and verrucae. It also strengthens the body’s immune system, which is often weakened by stress, illness, or by the use of antibiotics and other drugs. It can also be used as a mouth wash, since it is highly effective in healing oral candidiasis (a fungal infection of mouth and throat).

Tea Tree Oil, when used as a mouth wash, acts as a natural cure for bad breath, oral candidiasis, gingivitis, plaque, and inflamed gums. It also kills mouth bacteria prior to dental surgery and also reduces mouth irritation that is often caused by dental procedures.

Add 3 drops of Tea Tree Oil to a cup of warm water.

Use the solution as a mouthwash two to three times daily.

Meet Tea Tree Oil

Before getting down to the nitty-gritty of Tea tree oil..Let me introduce this liquid to you…Its about moments when distressed and disappointed from everything else with little or no results…when it comes to personal care…we find refuge in ancient recipes..about which we had though heard a million times but ignored..considering them trivial..insignificant and fanatic..but when we do resort to those and start getting astonishing results…is the time we start to believe…..believe in the might..and bounty of nature…

Say hello to one such nature’s bounty…Tea tree oil..

Every great discovery has this little descriptive history behind it…no surprises…tea tree oil too has one..

The ones hailing from Bundjalung…eastern Australia utilized the tea tree by inhaling them…for them it was their traditional medicine…obtained from the crushed leaves treating coughs and colds….They also applied it’s leaves on wounds…after which a poultice is applied….In addition…The infusion of the leaves with certain liquids made the it even more powerful and it’s effects vigorous… as far as applying on the wounds was concerned..

Use of the oil of Tea tree wasn’t common at all until this researcher named Arthur Penfold published the first reports of its antimicrobial activity in a number of newspapers in the 1920s and 1930s….In going through the antimicrobial activity of M. Alternifolia tea tree oil was rated as 10 times more active than phenol…

And as far as the commercial tea tree oil industry is concerned…it happened after the medicinal properties of the oil were first reported by Penfold in the 1920s…It was produced from natural bush stands of M. alternifolia that produced oil with the appropriate chemo type…the plant material was cut by hand and often distilled on the spot in makeshift…mobile…wood-fired bush stills…

Hmm…Tea tree oil or melaleuca oil…is a pale yellow colour to nearly colorless and clear essential oil with a fresh camphor like odor…It is extracted from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia….which belongs to the northeast coast of New South Wales… Australia…Tea tree oil is often confused with tea oil….the sweet cooking oil from obtained from seeds of the tea plant…

You know how it got its name?

Actually…back then…the leaves of tea tree were used as a substitute for tea….and so it came to be known as teea tree oil…

Just a few of the many conditions it treats…

  • Vaginitis
  • Thrush
  • Periodontal disease
  • As an antiseptic
  • Acne
  • Athlete’s foot
  • Dandruff
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Yeast infection
  • Boils
  • Lice

So…intrigued? Well…so was I..take it to another level…have a look at these references..

You know I have seen very closely the ones suffering from any kind of skin problem…they have a hard time coping with it…and getting over the thoughts of the stigma of the scars of such skin diseases leave behind…it’ll kills their self-esteem…bring them to grass root levels and eventually the person is left with no amount of confidence and their life…more than half of it dedicated to vain thoughts that flow in the direction of finding a refuge from the bars of an uneven and scarred skin…I am here to open the mental horizons…to make the unaware…aware of the now curable disease…Eczema…

This disease Eczema is a form of atopic dermatitis caused by an allergic reaction of the skin… Mostly common in infants and young children and though many cases of infantile eczema resolve with age, a large number of people continue to suffer from eczema as adults. An alternative treatment that may be helpful for symptoms of eczema is tea tree oil. More research is needed to establish the analgesic and antiseptic properties of this traditional remedy.

Tea tree oil….which is otherwise called melaleuca oil is pale and nearly clear in appearance and is of golden colour and is derived from leaves of Melaleuca alternifolia that you will find grows in Australia and more particularly along the northwest coast of New South Wales, and which is believed to have many beneficial properties of it being-

  • Anti-septic
  • Anti-fungal

Often people are confused by  the word tea in this particular case as it is not at all tea oil even and is used in different ways…

Food For Soul…Why Tea Tree Oil For eczema?

Tea tree oil and eczema can be said to go well together because there is truck loads of evidence to suggest that there is vast potential for using tea tree oil for treating eczema and it is also good anti-septic for other infections as well…and is hence the most effective of all… And…there has also been much positive feedback from researchers who have studied the use of tea tree oil and eczema and found that tea tree oil is promising for this condition…it is not limited in this respect and is useful in many other conditions too…

The best thing about this natural…essential oil is that it is the best refuge from drugs available for treating eczema and this natural remedy is not some quackery…but very useful in a number of instances including for the treatment of eczema…..understand? Thought the quality of the oil may differ in different respects and it is absolutely up to you to choose the one you consider fine and decent…

Tea tree oil in a way scrapes off the smudges left by diseases like Eczema…or you can even term them scars or rashes…thereby relieving you from the itchiness and pain of the condition…the application of the oil…when applied neat…should be a little careful if you have sensitive skin…but when diluted with any other plain liquid it will do wonders for the skin leaving it clean and in a way…exfoliated…

Itch Itch! Scratch Scratch! Bye Bye! – Tea Tree Oil

As a small kid I remember…I used to have hip-long air…my father was pretty fond of it so made let me have them…but soon I was agitated with managing of them and developed an itchy scalp…I wondered what was wrong with me…I used to scratch my scalp day and night…then one day my mother caught hold of me…and used this really narrow comb I had never seen before…to comb my hair…and to my absolute shock…i saw these tiny little insects trapped in the teeth of the comb…coming out of my hair…my mother called them ‘lice’…And she explained to me that how those parasites lived on by sucking my scalp’s blood…I started to detest the mites so badly that I asked mom to treat from thoroughly…and that’s when she used Tea tree oil in my hair for the first time…and no exaggerating…I was SO relieved…felt so light in the head…

So now you know what an old recipe it is to cure lice…had it not been my mom…I would’ve never known the cure to the pesky little creatures…

You might not be knowing this but once a child gets head lice…the mature or adult head lice can lay up to 10 eggs or nits each day…These nits…or lice eggs…hatch in about 7 to 12 days…Baby lice or term them nymphs…are about the size of a pinhead when they hatch…and quickly mature into adult lice in about a 9 to 12 days by sucking our blood (vampires!)

In just a few days… adult lice are ready to mate (imagine even creatures this small mate!)…starting their life cycle all over again during their 3 to 4 week lifespan…

And the rescuer is Tea tree oil…you know a kind of oil…that would keep the lice at bay if you do not have them and will ruin their being if you do have them

Even if you go out in the market today…you’ll find that most of the anti-lice products bear the name ‘Tea tree’ on them…and well then it shouldn’t surprise you

Wondering what makes this oil so distinct and useful?

Well…Tea tree oil is an extremely powerful antiseptic that is very effective in fighting lice and actually many other problems…

It’s distinguishing properties being that it is-

  • Bactericide
  •  Fungicide
  • Antiseptic
  •  Disinfectant
  • Antiviral

 Not only this…If we go I detail then…It can be used to fight…

  1. Mites
  2. an infection
  3. against parasites

 It even promotes the facilitation of…

  1. Healing
  2. Perspiration (makes us sweat)
  3. Supports the immune system.

Try diluting this amazing liquid with other liquids…and see the wonders it does for your hair and hair problems…but my personal recommendation for it…because I have been through it and Tea tree sincerely helped…It still continues to…Just maybe…you weren’t aware of the fact…

Anyway…now please check out our reference links…

I Am A Wonder Worth Worshipping – Tea Tree Oil

Like I have written in certain other blogs of mine…Every great discovery has a certain uncanny history to it…and so does this wondrous oil…Without any further ado…let me take you the yesteryears…the years of recognition of this amazing Tea tree oil…

Even much much before Captain Cook set foot on the shores of Australia…the natives used the this oil of the Melaleuca trees for a wide range of topical and oral applications….They crushed the leaves to obtain their oil to use as rubbing mediums and mixed them with clay to form poultices and even bathed in the water containing Tea tree oil….White settlers observed and imbibed the way of using the leaves for their own healing applications…It was most unfortunate for people in the west that there was no documented evidence…and the use of Melaleuca oil was to remain confined to Australia…as a bush remedy…for the next 150 years..( phew! Now that’s a long time).

Hmm…then way back in 1922…an Australian chemist…Arthur Penfold…distilled the oil from the Melaleuca alternifolia and following…published a paper stating that it had wide-ranging antibacterial and antifungal properties..And it was disclosed for the record that this was a new type of germicide…gentle to skin cells but harmful to the germs…This oil then got renowned for its ability to treat all kinds of infections and infestations…It was the treatment of choice… from

  1. Ringworm
  2.  Leg ulcers
  3. Cuts and wounds
  4.  Head lice
  5.  Infections
  6. Pyorrhoea
  7. Gingivitis
  8. Catarrh
  9.  Thrush
  10.  Tonsillitis

Be it….Professors…doctors…dentists and veterinary surgeons…they all….utilized its many properties for the health and welfare of their patients…

Then it was the dawn of the World War II and…this oil was in such short supply that all the available stocks were used to help stop infections from the unavoidable war wounds…both in soldiers and munitions workers that were helping with the war effort….Soon it was brought down to be cheaper…and more readily available….alternative should be manufactured to help stop the spread of germs….and the once thriving industry went into a steep decline….For the next twenty years the oil was all but forgotten…literally…I know it’s pretty unbelievable to hear that…but its a fact..

But fortunately enough…Melaleuca alternifolia oil has over 100 components working in a synergized fashion…most of which could not even be identified back in the early years…so an exact nature-identical copy was impossible to synthesize from man-made chemicals….Now you understand…As far as the 60s era was concerned…the oil made a remarkable comeback… the first scientific evidence in decades confirmed that it had a favourable effect in the treatment of boils…gynaecological infections and later for varied foot problems and nail bed infections….And now…..the once sidelined oil was ( actually ‘is’) gaining truck loads of  popularity…and farms were being set up to harvest the oil on a commercial basis…

And ladies and gentleman! Hang on… it doesn’t stop there…not just can this amazing oil be used in first aid applications and toiletries…it is a powerful solvent too (which is why it helps to clear trapped bacteria in boils) and can be utilized all around the home….So if you have any old tea tree oil in the cupboard it can be safely used for household cleaning applications…understand? It is particularly good for getting the glue off plates…jars and bottles often left behind by price stickers and labels…..It can be an effective cleaner…removing paint and pen marks easily from surfaces…( wow! Didn’t have even a single clue that it is so prolific! ) when mixed with a small amount of ordinary household cleaner or laundry product and rubbed over the area…It is a good stain remover for clothes and everyday washable items….But it must not be used full-strength on plastics and cheaper man-made fabrics…because they can become damaged by the strong solvent action…It can clean silver…It helps to deodorize rooms and cupboards….Mixed with a few drops of a culinary oil it can be sprinkled onto a duster and used to polish wooden furniture…both inside the house and in the garden…

And today the stand of tea tree oil is above all…without a doubt…
