Uses Of Tea Tree Oil

Conditions that Tea Tree Oil may help when applied in a safe and proper manner.

Dandruff
Athletes’ foot
Jock itch
Nail fungus
Insect bites
Acne
Ringworm
Bee Stings
Boils
Cold sores
Gum disease


While numerous laboratory studies have demonstrated antimicrobial properties of tea tree oil (likely due to the compound terpinen-4-ol), only a small number of high-quality trials have been published. Human studies have focused on the use of topical tea tree oil for fungal infections (including fungal infections of the nails and athlete's foot), acne, and vaginal infections. However, there is a lack of definitive available evidence for the use of tea tree oil in any of these conditions, and further study is warranted.(2)
