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)

Sinus…There are various kinds to it….Listen up

Just a tip…For simple sinus congestion resulting from a food allergy… try eating a lighter diet by avoiding dairy foods and rich creamy sauces for a day or two to see if it makes a difference…

A postnasal drip can develop from a digestive problem such as candida yeast….In that case…any candy… corn-sweetened cola drink…fruits…and sugary foods ( in brief all the heavenly things on earth) will result in sinus congestion…digestive bloating…weakness and a funky mood…This yeast may also breathe after any surgery…childbirth or as a side-effect after taking antibiotics or other medicines…Yeasts have to be treated with the proper diet and anti-yeast herbs…

 Add a drop of tea tree oil to a Q tip and swab out the inside of your nose….and you experience the first kick…. For people with cat dander allergies…shortness of breath…or in my case a small stuffy apartment in a polluted city…breathing cat fur can pose a problem…What I did was…I washed my face…neck and chest with water adding a few drops of tea tree oil and it cleared the air…making it possible for me to breathe and sleep normally….Likewise…tea tree oil may be useful for people with asthma and TB…Anything that opens sinus congestion improves our oxygen intake…

You know this sinus headache can develop after a complicated…rich meal because digestion is too challenged to deal with many different dishes and alcohol…which increases yeast..big time…If you frequently get sinus headaches…start the day with a hot…digestive green tea and avoid fresh or dried fruits…Take digestive herbs such as ginger…mint and lemon grass tea or eat some fresh ginger…which also treats nausea..the know that horrible feeling of wanting to vomit…

I’ll tell you…To clear sinus congestion and cure a sinus headache fast–swab inside the nose with tea tree oil as described above….Yogis in India prefer to sniff powdered gotu kola herb because it clears the senses and is supposed to improve memory….Some people find the powder irritating and messy–green and sticky when wet… If Tea tree oil may give you…actually it anyway will……..a brighter outlook on life…
