Tea Tree Treats Psoriasis…Yes It Does!

Sometimes when I used to sit alone…got sober and used to think of the goods and ills of this world…One question often stroked my thoughts..Cant there be just one…Just One…solution to all problems…a lot of our time would be saved finding alternate solutions…and similarly couldn’t there be Just One…Simply One medicine for all ills?? I mean…One medicine that would simultaneously treat all our ills…and then stroked an answer…Tea tree oil…No…I don’t mean any angel cascaded from heaven to tell me the answer…but my deep thought in the direction and my grandma’s  recipes…all of which had Tea tree oil as an ingredient without fail…

Psoriasis…I am taking for granted that you already know the condition…

Uh…Okay fine…I’ll still explain…

Psoriasis is a skin condition which is caused by a combination of the outer skin producing too many new cells very rapidly….and shedding them and usually happens when the immune system starts taking the skin cells for certain alien pathogens…

Usually the skin produces these cells at a rather slow pace…but with Psoriasis the cells are produced in surplus…The area of the skin affected does not have the time to process correctly the amount of productivity…that’s how it proliferates…

That is why Flaking or Scales may appear along with rashes because of the cells building up together…Though the scientific terms used to describe this condition are way too professional for you to understand and me to explain…

When it comes down to the psoriatic plaque…they are characterized by patches of red inflamed skin with a rapid and excessive skin production…which creates the scaly white flaking… Some people have it in their scalp others in elbows or knees and whereas some in regions as delicate as the genitals!

Often the ones suffering go through a very tough period mentally…they get depressed…because the nature of this disease is such!

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…

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…

Some people that have had long standing eczema problems and who have tried many natural as well as pharmaceutical creams to treat the problem and had not met with any success have found that tea tree oil and eczema were well suited and having used lotion containing Tea tree…the eczema problem disappeared….So…you can safely try out tea tree oil for eczema and not regret this alternative and natural method of treating the problem….

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…
