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…

Tea Tree- Lets Fights Acne! One-On-One!

The title of this article is what Tea tree has to say to acne….over hundreds of years now people have found themselves trapped in the ugly and intimidating world of acne….the ones resourceful…fought back…but the ones deprived…had to face the repercussions…and even today the battle continues…low self-esteem (especially amongst youngsters)…incapacitating condition…sleepless nights…strained relationships…have all been ‘some’ of the many of its grave effects..

But before that…understand this Tea tree oil…

This oil is an essential oil obtained by pressing the leaves of the Tea tree…It in a way…some say…smells like camphor and is kind of transparent (Okay translucent! )  Natives of  Australia…the tree’s native location too…had long back brought the oil in their use…You know like even much before it developed a commercial market for itself…It vigorously fights-

  1. Virus
  2. Infections
  3. Bacteria

Now…for the question…How Tea Tree Oil fight acne?

What makes it take the highest position as far as best fighters of acne are concerned…is its antimicrobial property….and eventually the ability to kill the bacteria on skin that contribute to acne

This acne occurs when a pore becomes clogged with dead skin cells or oil produced by the skin…which in layman’s language we term as dirt…impurities..So…Once this occurs…bacteria get trapped inside the clogged pore… this in turn causes swelling and sores…especially when white blood cells attack the bacteria trapped in the pore… By fighting these…Tea tree eliminates the chances of the reoccurrence of the bacteria

Tea tree oil tones the skin even…It dries up the oil that’s there on the surface of the skin…hence ending the chance of the development and blocking the nourishment of the bacteria…

Tea tree oil has these great advantages over all other things…

1) Tea tree oil does not dry out your skin.
2) Tea tree oil gets the red out.
3) Tea tree oil fights the bacteria that cause pimples with ugly yellow centers…you will look better faster with tea tree oil

Okay so you know enough as to why to use Tea tree in place of anything else to cure acne…So..now have a look at our references..

Tea Tree Oil – Caressing the Skin

There were times in my life when I just wanted to put layers and layers of foundation and face powder to conceal…erm…no ‘conceal’ is rather sophisticated…I wanted to FAKE a flawless skin! Which I evidently didn’t possess…and then there were times I wanted to apply the juice of all possible edibles in my refrigerator (you see the height of desperation!)…hoping…wishing (whatever!) that the greens could fight the blues of my skin…and then the green indeed did the wonder…but ahem!! Not the veggies in the fridge…but the nature’s green Tea tree oil!

Now…I…being an ardent user of Tea tree essential oil…I’ll tell you why only Tea tree oil and nothing else…

Well…You know this Tea tree is this amazing dose of luxury for skin and can support its health in so many other ways….so any unpleasant encounters with skin and….thumbs up for Tea tree!

There’s fact you should be aware of…This Tea tree oil is not really obtained from the beverage tea plant…Nor it is a concoction from the green tea plantations….But these oils are distilled from the Malaleuca  plant widely grown in Australia…Now you know how it got the name ‘Tea-tree’..

Now what counts for Tea Tree to make it the best applicant for skin is its properties. it is

  • Antiseptic
  • Antibiotic

And not to our surprise these qualities of tea tree oils were always known and traditionally used by the locals for the treatment of skin infections and ugly eruptions on skin….and that how it invaded into the skincare market of today…and today it is hence a part of products like

  • cleansers
  • after shave lotions
  • scrubs
  • foams
  • moisturizers
  • anti- acne
  • blackhead removal products
  • foot creams
  • shampoos

A substance that will kill bacteria…micro-organisms and pests….That bacteria might be thriving on a pimple…or maybe any infectious skin eruption…or as fungus on toe nail or maybe as certain vaginal yeasts….Tea tree will bail you from the traps of these pests from anywhere and everywhere…

It happens to be that magic pen which when comes in contact with our skin…is bound to deliver magical and unbelievable results…usually by sucking out the impurities in the skin…leaving it scraped of extraneous substances..

Tea tree’s ability to ruin the being of apparently the most difficult…sticky and easily propagated bacteria and micro-organisms (even the ones left untreated by antibiotics)

As a matter of fact….acne…blackheads and dark spot are also actually a result of accumulation of dirt…sebum and thriving microorganisms…and bingo! Tea tree alone is an anti-squad for these…

And…it’s use…proliferating by every day…let’s do a quick recap…why..

1) It need not be consumed as antibiotic medicine which in turn has an  adverse effect on the liver
2) Most effective as a cure to numerous skin ailments
3) It is natural
4) It is useful as a preventive medicine to help stop the spread of germs and infections even before they start to harm the skin
5) Because nothing else can match its usefulness in its areas of activity

Hmm…know enough now..have a look behind the curtains..
