Medicinal Uses For Tea Tree Oil

1. Acne Treatment

80% of people in the Unite States deal with the emotional perils of acne. It’s unfortunately a built in stage of teenage life and sometimes even a persistent problem into your adult years.

Tea tree oil can help treat both minor and severe acne cases. Dermatologists found that the oil can kill the acne causing bacteria and it can help sooth red, swollen pimples in spot treatment. Remember, don’t pick, this is the worst thing you can do for your acne!

 2. Dandruff Prevention

Dandruff can be a horrible problem both aesthetically and physically. It’s itchy, persistent, and unsightly at times. Tea tree oil has antimicrobial agents that not only give your scalp a soothing, cooling sensation, it also smells amazing and eliminates the bacteria and fungus that is causing your dandruff.

 3. Nail Fungus

You may not know you have nail fungus, but it’s actually a fairly common health condition. Recent studies showed that tea tree oil can fight stubborn toenail infections with the same power as prescriptions drugs and ointments.

Simple paint the effected nail every day for as long as it takes. This process can take anywhere from a couple weeks to a couple months, so be patient!

 4. Yeast Infections

Dilute tea tree oil and use it topically on the effected area, vaginally or orally. Since tea tree oil is natural, you don’t have to worry about avoiding internal exposure.

 5. Athlete’s Foot

Tea tree oil as a topical ointment can help eliminate the fungus and bacteria that causes athlete’s foot. Tea tree oil is anti fungal and antimicrobial, and it is also extremely soothing for the itchiness, dryness and peeling that often accompanies athlete’s foot.
