Tea tree (Malaleuca alternifolia) essential oil is a strong antibacterial and antimicrobial agent that has been used by Aborigine tribes for thousands of years. When applied externally it is used to fight fungus, bacteria,and viruses, but it's most impressive part is that it can effectively fight a number of infections that are resistant to some antibiotic medications! Clearly nature knows what it's doing.
Here are some of the common conditions that tea tree essential oil can treat:
- Tinea infections (including ringworm)
- Fungal infections
- Head lice
