Tea tree oil is an essential oil that can be used for several purposes, including keeping skin, hair and nails healthy. Its known antimicrobial and antifungal properties may be helpful in treating infections at home. Tea tree oil is applied to the skin for infections such as acne, fungal infections of the nail (onychomycosis), lice, scabies, athlete's foot, and ringworm. It is also applied to the skin as a local antiseptic for cuts and abrasions, for burns, insect bites and stings, boils, vaginal infections, haemorrhoids, recurrent cold sores, toothache, infections of the mouth and nose, sore throat, and for ear infections.
How does it work?The chemicals in tea tree oil may kill bacteria and fungus, and reduce allergic skin reactions by decreasing swelling or inflammation.
