Nature’s Natural Antiseptic: Tea Tree Essential Oil

Tea Tree is quite the popular essential oil, mainly due to its versatile usage. Extracted from the leaves of the tea tree (melaleuca alternifolia), the tea tree has been used for centuries as a traditional remedy, especially by the Aboriginal people of Australia, where it is mostly found. The Aborigines would crush the leaves to extract the oil and inhale it to treat coughs and colds or topically apply it to their skin to accelerate healing. 

Today, with the advancement of technology, we can extract pure tea tree essential oil easily, primarily through distillation. Tea tree essential oil is used for varying purposes, including keeping your hair, skin and even nails healthy. It is pretty common to find the tea tree component in your beauty care products, such as facial washes, especially if you suffer from acne or skin issues. 

Is Tea Tree Oil Antibacterial and Antifungal? 

Yes, it is! Did you know that the chemicals in the tea tree oil can kill fungus and bacteria and even ease skin allergies by reducing swelling? Tea tree essential oil contains compounds such as terpinen-4-ol, which has been proven to be antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral. This component also may aid in fighting germs and foreign bodily invaders, making it an excellent essential oil to have and use regularly. 

Tea Tree oil may come in varying intensities and may be diluted with other ingredients to formulate beauty products or skin treatments. At Kidz Paradize, we offer you an undiluted tea tree essential oil, which may be combined with our carrier cream, or any other carrier oil, to aid your usage. You can conveniently apply it topically to your skin after mixing it with our cream or diffuse it within your personal space. Never use tea tree oil undiluted directly to your skin.

What Are The Benefits of Tea Tree Essential Oil? 

Tea Tree essential oil is used for various purposes, including combating acne problems, nail fungus, controlling dandruff, treating athlete’s foot or making hand sanitiser. It can also soothe skin inflammation, especially for psoriasis patients, or even add to your cleaning products for a natural and effective surface cleaner. These are just a few applications that tea tree essential oil is usually used. Due to its antibacterial and antifungal properties, tea tree oil has been proven to be effective in aiding in the abovementioned applications. 

However, before using tea tree essential oil, always do a patch test, or consult your doctors, especially if you are suffering from chronic conditions and are on medication or treatment. It is also best to research the appropriate proportions required to treat the different conditions to ensure its effectiveness.
