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!

Long Live The Saviour – Tea Tree Oil

Hmm…Tea Tree Oil is actually an essential oil…obtained from crushing the leaves of Tea Tree… Often called Melaleuca Oil…The scientific name of this Australian plant…

It is an oil….not like the others…because it is-

  • antifungal
  •  antibacterial

And is hence used in innumerable products like-

  • Shampoos
  •  Soaps
  • Lotions
  • Antiseptics
  • Deodorants

You know this…Tea Tree Oil is great in treatment of psoriasis for a lot of people with this disease…and meticulously cleans the skin…and makes it free from those disgusting flakes…

Its properties do the wonders for the affected skin…Usually it is recommended that it should be diluted with another plain liquid or even water before application ‘cause otherwise it may be a tad too hard for the skin…

As a matter of fact…this oil is pretty ancient and has been used for centuries within Australia for minor problems like healing cuts… burns and infections and today this same natural herb has been found to be a natural way to treat psoriasis…Amazing to note the development…it’s benefits are just increasing by the day….Tea tree oil based shampoos have been created to treat scalp psoriasis….It acts as an antiseptic and antifungal agent…This is a natural herb…a natural healer…It’s the best one can resort to…especially after being disappointed from other chemical-based products…

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..

Have An ‘Athletes Foot’? Run for Tea Tree Oil

The name of this disease might sound rather funny…but trust me it is not for the poor ones suffering from it…thought it isn’t a very serious in nature but is pesky for sure like all other skin ailments….Many cures had been devised to cure this illness but none turned out to offer utterly satisfying results…One measure that i personally resorted to…when my father went through a similar condition was…early morning I used to warm water and pour it in a tub…added a few drops of an antiseptic liquid…Tea tree oil…and some soap…and used to ask him to place his feet in the water for 20 minutes…I repeated the process for around 2 weeks..and it did wonders for his feet…Because he used to don closed shoes with socks…all day long in office…so because of the wetness and dampness he developed the disease…

To throw some light on the disease’s being….Basically….Athlete’s foot is a common fungal infection of the skin….The fungus thrives in warm…damp environments…can be the locker rooms… health clubs…public showers…and indoor swimming pools….

You know You Have Developed This Problem When You Experience…

  • Scales…cracks…cuts…peeling skin or blisters between the toes or on the soles of the feet…
  • Itching… burning or stinging between the toes or on the soles of the feet…
  • Skin dryness on the sides or bottoms of the feet

This infection can even spread to under the toenails…causing thick…crumbly…discolored or separated toenails…it is called Onchomycosis and as a matter of fact…it can be very difficult to treat…

Run For Tea Tree!

Tea tree oil (also known Melaleuca alternifolia)…offers you the best refuge from athlete’s foot Tea tree oil has a long history of traditional use in Australia as a remedy for skin infections…

It has been evident all this while that tea tree oil is an antiseptic and has the ability to kill many bacteria and fungi…It offers the best help in diseases like athletes foot..

A research that took place on Tea tree’s effectiveness on the occurrence of athletes foot…and it was found that its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal qualities do wonder for the infected skin of people…and scrapes out the impurities…the fungus….and the bacteria…often killing them in the process…

The tea tree oil has shown improvement in

  • Itching
  • Scaling
  • Inflammation
  • Burning

And for the effectiveness of this oil.. People applied the oil twice daily to affected areas for four weeks…and experienced results they had never seen before on their affected areas with any other oil or solution and that’s how the Australians became the ardent users and crusaders of the tea tree oil…

In a kind of survey done…it was found that….There was a marked clinical improvement in 68 percent of people using the 50 percent tea tree oil solution and 72 percent in people using the 25 percent tea tree oil solution…compared to 39 percent in the placebo group…The fungi was eradicated in 64 percent in the 50 percent tea tree oil group…compared to 31 percent in the placebo group…And that’s how this amazing oil showed its worth when pushed in a competition with others…

Get Those Long Locks With Tea Tree Oil

As a kid I used to fantasize of having those long…lustrous tresses…which would obey me…and fall exactly at the place where I would want them to..be it my shoulders…or purely on my back…I wanted to have them but was too young (though I soon was allowed to keep them)…

One secret that I didn’t know was…That Tea Tree was magic liquid that eventually let me have those…My mom told me when I grew up….

But frankly…The secret to having long relaxed hair is knowledge…It’s all about knowing how to care for your straight or curly  hair for yourself and understanding your strands… Straight  hair is processed with chemicals to make it straight or to smooth out the kinks in natural hair…once this is done a relaxed head will require a different level of care than natural hair…it cannot be business as usual for your new hair…

And well..I know I was not the only one…Every woman today desires to have beautiful long hair and no one wants the greying to appear on her beautiful hair…But this requires especial hair care…I’ll teach you how…under the aegis of Tea tree oil…

Understand tea tree Oil

I am sure of you witnessing people with beautiful hair…and that enviousness that follows…They let out their secret and you are astonished…Tea Tree oil…but have you ever tried to find out what the benefits of tea tree oil are and why it is used in them….It is

  • The anti viral
  • Anti fungal
  •  Anti bacterial

These properties of tea tree oil makes it a vital for the hair growth….

Understand Why…

The anti fungal property of tea tree oil is very useful in preventing dandruff to grow on our scalp….thus keeping the scalp healthy and helping us to get rid of that flaky dandruff…The only thing you have to do is just massage tea tree oil on your scalp one hour before washing your hair and this will remove all the scalp problems like itching and dryness of the scalp…

And yes..you heard it just right…Massaging will give the protection from fungal growth as well as increase the blood circulation in the scalp too….Thus it is the most effective remedy to say good bye to dandruff and scalp problems….The anti fungal property effectively works towards protecting the scalp from any such problems…

Generally when we get up in the morning the hair are all tangled and messed up…It is really a pain to tame then and comb them too…But tea tree oil is the best solution to control those messy strands…

All you have to do is to take few drops of tea tree oil in your palm and rub both the palms together…so that the oil spreads on your palms and now apply this oil on the untamed strands...This can be used both for straight as well as curly hair…If you want that perfect clean look with your hair then take some more tea tree oil and rub it on the strand and start applying from the tips of the frizz towards the root of the hair…And you are sorted…seriously…

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…

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 Oil Cures Eczema

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…

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….

You name it and it has the cure for that disease. It is invariably found in almost all the households of Australia, particularly those having small children. The magical healing and disinfectant properties make it a wonder-drug. It also boosts up immunity.

No! That was not all! It has numerous aces up its sleeves which can be covered under following general medicinal properties it possesses.

  It is said that wherever Mother Nature gave the diseases, she gave the cures there itself. The activity of microbes, bacteria, virus and fungi are at their peaks in the Tropics and hence most of the medicinal plants are found there too. Tea Tree is one such plant. It can cure some of the ugliest bacterial infections of the Tropics. Wounds, which are most prone to bacterial infections in this region, can be effectively cured and protected using this oil. Although this oil is seldom taken orally, but if so, in mild concentrations, can cure internal bacterial infections too, such as those in colon, stomach, intestines, excretory system and urinary system. It can also be used in treatment of Tuberculosis.

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…
