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. Therefore, Tea Tree Oil is an excellent natural remedy for hundreds of bacterial and fungal skin ailments such as –

  • Athlete’s foot
  • Warts

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.

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…

Meet Tea Tree Oil

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

Breathe easy With Tea Tree Oil…Treating Asthma

Once there was this female in my grade…who didn’t know that she had asthma…and in a race..she enthusiastically participated…but at the end of it…she was terribly out of breath…she was baffled…she had ran so many other times but the ‘out-of-breath’ scenario wasn’t this terrible ever…so she was rushed in the ambulance to a nearby medical centre…doctor instantly diagnosed asthma…she was shocked…

But..with proper care and attention…she controlled it to quite an extent…

One of the reasons that she disclosed was…tea Tree Oil…She being a crusader of nature’s natural healers…

Here’s how…why…telling you…

Usually…This first inventor also comes from a family known for a long history of respiratory problems….Therefore….the inventors decided to look beyond conventional “modern medicine” to help the first inventor…and as a result…have conceived methods to substantially prevent colds…flu….and infections of the human respiratory system….

These methods include the inhalation of the vapours of tea tree oil that are theorized to form a protective…and infection-preventing…thin layer within the entire respiratory system…including

  • the lungs
  •  bronchial tubes
  •  the nasal cavities

okay…I’ll speak in pure professional language…stay glued and attentive…This thin layer maintains its anti-pathogenic properties for a period of time following the inhalation of the vapours for at least one-half hour…and perhaps longer….This thin anti-pathogenic layer substantially prevents the initial infection of colds…flu…and other pathogens for a period of time following inhalation…

The inventors also propose the prophylactic use of inhaled eucalyptus oil and/or tea tree oil to prevent additional tuberculosis…which is becoming a major health problem in the United States…The inventors further propose the prophylactic use of inhaled tea tree oil to prevent opportunistic infections of the human respiratory system of individuals having cystic fibrosis….

Now another known fact…While certain medical uses for tea tree oil have been previously disclosed….to the inventor’s best knowledge…none of those previously disclosed methods have suggested…or proposed… that the periodic inhalation of vapours from tea tree oil may be used as prophylactic agents to substantially prevent infection of colds…flu…and other pathogens within the respiratory system of human beings for a duration of time following that inhalation….After the infection of human beings with certain pathogens…previous inhalation therapies have suggested using tea tree oil to aid in the recovery from certain respiratory diseases….Though…none of these previous methods have suggested using tea tree oil vapours as prophylactic agents to routinely and substantially prevent the initial infection of pathogens for a duration of time following their inhalation as a primary method of preventing disease…
