The Many Uses of Tea Tree OilTea Tree Oil is considered to be both antiseptic (able to destroy bacteria capable of causing infection) and an antimicrobial (may destroy or prevent growth of microbes which are tiny living things including bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses). It is used medicinally in the treatment of many conditions, the most common being prevention or treatment of acne, fungal infections, yeast infections and a wide variety of skin conditions. It’s diverse uses literally span from head to toe; from the treatment of head lice and dandruff to being a remedy for Athlete’s foot, corns and calluses, and nail infections.

Tea Tree Oil works against bacteria and microbes in a similar way to disinfectants as it disrupts the cell membranes of destructive microorganisms, and disables the proteins within them, basically “de-activating” them so that they cannot multiply and cause health problems. The main active constituents in tea tree oil are chemical compounds called terpinen-4-ol, alpha-terpineol, and linalool.
