Tea Tree (Melalenca Alternifolia) is a small tree or shrub with needlelike leaves, not dissimilar to that of the cypress. It can have either yellow or purple flowers and originates from Australia. The Aboriginal people used Tea Tree leaves as a traditional remedy, which they made into tea, hence its name.
Tea Tree essential oil is primarily an anti-infection oil, it has antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties and is frequently used for treatment of skin problems such as spots, acne, warts, verrucaes, athlete’s foot, rashes, insect bites, burns, blisters etc. etc.
I use Tea Tree a great deal, especially for cleaning cuts and wounds as it prevents them becoming infected and helps the skin to heal better by encouraging the formation of scar tissue. Tea Tree is also effective against dandruff - it is used in quite a few well known branded hair products such as, Original Source and Aussie. Tea Tree is great for treatment of thrush and cystitis, but not many people realise that it is also useful as an expectorant as it alleviates inflammation and stimulates the immune system thus making it an excellent choice when fighting colds, flu, respiratory infections, catarrh problem, and infectious illnesses. In addition, Tea Tree can also be used to bring down a fever, kills fleas, and lice and as a deodorant.
Tea Tree oil is good for use as a mouthwash or gargle, but MUST NEVER be swallowed.
For the treatment of spots, add four drops of Tea Tree essential oil to three drops of Bergamot, three drops of Lavender and two teaspoons of Jojoba oil. Use the mixture to dab onto affected areas of skin – this is good for treatment of inflamed or acne-prone skin.
It should be noted that people who suffer with sensitive skin should use Tea Tree oil with caution. Also note, pregnant women, people suffering with epilepsy and small children should seek professional advice before using any essential oil.
