Tea tree is one of those essential oils that has certain properties that supersede the goods of many others carefully made products…of course the case is going to be a lot better if the product contains tea tree..

The most rare…uncanny and invincible quality of this oil being that it deals with the emotional aspect of the wound too (Initially I was left wondering if wounds too have emotions)…But what it means is that in case there has been trauma or shock this magical oil is able to address that component as well…Intriguing no?

One major factor it is so illustrious for its healing properties is that the benefits of tea tree oil are so recognized…by everyone…including yours and mine grandma to the scientists today…and is hence the most popular essential oils of all times…

 For these reasons and that its amazing ability to enhances the immune system..rates it on the top…above all…and to add more to it….it has been traditionally used for coughs… flu…bronchitis…and colds… (Mind you! It still IS used!)

Its regeneration properties also reduce scar tissue and swelling which hence makes it perfect for healing wounds….insect bites and acne…

Vapourize Those Boils With Tea tree oil

As if those ugly and pesky pimples were enough that another of its kind popped up (literally)…a boil…often people confuse boils with pimples…but let me make it clear in the very beginning…boils are a lot more grave than pimples…Okay on a serious note..what I mean is that boils are bigger and more painful than pimples..they are…in a way…the nurtured versions of pimples…bigger…uglier…more painful..thanks to the pus and that ‘eew!’ liquid filled in them…

Worse yet, a staph infection lies dead for lifetimes ( Again…not literally…was just exaggerating )…because it is shrewd enough to wait for us to fall sick and then attack…(remember hit when the iron is hot)…

Hmm…Now understand what Tea tree does to those ugly little things…

Apply tea tree oil on that boil…You know at the first signs they can be stopped (yes I mean it)..mainly when they are tiny…simply with an  hourly application of tea tree oil…

Keeping the infected area open…or rather exposed to air can be a lot more beneficial…then try following the activity by wrapping it with a gauze bandage…it’ll help..

Nothing acts better than Tea tree during the problem of a boil…it has this

  • Anti-fungal
  • Anti-septic

Quality that does wonders for the skin that is infected…

 No matter what the reason of the occurrence of the boil..

  • an infection

  •  just repeated friction to some part of your skin

Tea Tree – Extending A Helping Hand

TEA TREE – EXTENDING A HELPING HAND

Not for just one…two..rather…not just for any countable number of troubles but for almost anything and everything…Tea tree extends a helping hand for almost every human trouble…relating to the complex human body and its functioning…

You know this Tea tree grew in the islands of the south Pacific and Australia…Reason it bears the name ‘Tea tree’ is that…it’s bark….leaves……or twigs were initially used by settlers and travellers as a tea substitute…You know for making tea and all….

 And a surprising fact is that the Australian tea trees…are not trees at all!

Rather they are green shrubs that grow in the wet-wet coastal regions of Australia….you now they are like these amazingly quickly growing plants and easily acquire a minimum height of 7 to 8 feet when mature….Australian tea trees have soft (wow! That’s unusual)…thick…white bark (I just fancied white barks as a kid) …and white flowers that bloom in the summer…pretty they are..

That was about the tree…The light yellow tea tree oil is obtained by steaming the tea tree leaves to bring out the oil which is used mainly in medicine…and yes…also for industrial lubricants and cosmetic products…The smell being somewhat like nutmeg…

It’s flushed with these medicinal properties because of this unusual chemical called terpenoid…. which when making up for at least 30 and preferably 40-50 of the oil…is when it can be considered medically useful….Tea tree oil contains yet another compound…cineole….which ideally should make up less than 15 and preferably 2.5 of the oil….

hmm…now let me disclose which I know you’ve been waiting to hear…Yes! Tea tree oil kills fungus and bacteria…even the ones resistant to certain antibiotics… Elaborative uses being…Tea tree oil is used outwardly as - 

Some of its basic uses:

  • Treating athlete’s foot
  • For acne
  • Treating fungal infections of fingernails or toenails
  • For oral candidiasis (Though do spit it out)

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.

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.

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!

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..

Tea Tree Cares for Your Pet More Than You

So…you always thought you could care for your pet in the best possible fashion?

Yeah yeah…I agree…you get it vaccinated…You bathe that little fluffy creature…you pull out those ugly ticks with your own hands…You cuddle him…caress him…But did you ever think of defending the poor creature in anticipation from all the ills?

Probably…some of you might have…but for othersit’s time you went natural and safe and regular with Tea Tree Oil…

I’ll tell you why…

  • Tea tree oil (also called Melaleuca alternifolia) is a natural antiseptic for your pets…. The oil immediately penetrates outer skin layers and mixes with body oils to treat such conditions as insect bites…cuts…wounds…etc ( even for you! )

 

  • Tea tree oil has pain-numbing properties and can be used topically for ear infections…or any other outward infection of your pets..

 

  • Tea tree oil is an excellent antifungal and can be employed for pet medication of yeast and even ringworm…To fight plaque at your dogs teeth…brush with toothpaste containing tea tree oil…

Funnily enough our pets also suffer many of the same disorders as we humans do…tea tree oil can be used for pet medication of arthritis, bad breath, ringworm, or ear infections.like I just mentioned…
And for external application…mix 1 teaspoon tea tree oil with 1 cup of water…
And remember …hen using tea tree oil for pet medication…always dilute it as full strength can cause irritations…because it always recommended that..no other reason…

Try to apply it only on areas where your dog cannot lick it off…so that it does not intake the oil!

Tea tree oil has phenomenal properties…they are that Tea tree oil is

  • anti-fungal
  • anti-inflammatory
  • antiseptic properties

And these qualities of it work for both us and our pets….Again..I remind…just stick to its ‘external’ application…

As a pet medication….the solution should consist of 1 tsp. of tea tree oil mixed with 1 cup of water….It is better to err on the side of caution and a less strong solution could be administered….As stated…tea tree oil has excellent anti-fungal properties…Like I just mentioned in the previous paragraph…

If your pet has ringworm…you may want to consider using a low-concentration tea tree gel or otherwise diluting the tea tree solution in bath water…If your dog suffers from heavy plaque on their teeth…then a low-concentration tea tree oil toothpaste may be your answer….

Similarly……..For ear infections…using a tea tree oil product is preferable to using the water-based solution as the ear is a highly sensitive area….Tea tree oil also functions as a natural antiseptic and is great for treating your large pet’s cuts…burns…bites and bruises… (Mentioned earlier)
