The History Behind Tea Tree Oil...

Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia), also known as Melaleuca oil or Ti Tree Oil. This powerful essential oil is derived from the "Tea Tree" and is one of natures best herbs for treating skin problems . In one Australian study, it worked as well as the standard treatment of benzyl peroxide to treat acne. Antiseptic and anti-fungal, tea tree infusions and oils are useful in many types of infections, including those caused by the herpes virus and Candida organisms. It treats shingles, acne, diaper rash, vaginal infections, burns, cuts, abrasions and infected wounds. Studies show tea tree also stimulates immune-system functions. The Melaleuca tree or bush is a plant native to New South Wales, Australia. It has been used by the indigenous population of Australia for thousands of years. The plant was named tea tree after Captain James Cook set foot on the shores of Australia back in 1770. The story goes that Cook brewed up a tea from the leaves of the Melaleuca tree. Sir Joseph Banks, the botanist accompanying Cook on his voyage, collected samples of the leaf from several species of Melaleuca to study on his return to England. Please note that the therapeutic essential oil comes from only one of the hundreds of Melaleuca plants - specifically Melaleuca alternifolia. Research was conducted in the early 20th Century into the effectiveness of tea tree oil as an antiseptic and disinfectant.

In 1933 the British Medical Journal published a report stating that tea tree oil was a powerful disinfectant, non-poisonous and non-irritant. In 1930 the Australian Medical Journal reported extremely good results when using tea tree oil to treat everything from septic wounds to scar regeneration. The report stated that the oil dissolved pus, leaving wounds clean without any apparent damage to the tissues. In 1937 the same journal noted that blood, pus or other organic matter actually increased the antiseptic properties of tea tree oil by about 10-12%. In 1955 the United States Dispensatory stated that tea tree oil was actively germicidal, with an antiseptic action 11 to 13 times that of carbolic acid (also known as phenol, a commonly used antiseptic that is toxic and an irritant).

The Australian government included bottles of tea tree oil in the first aid kits of soldiers serving in the tropical regions during the second world war. With the invention of synthetic chemicals, natural substances such as tea tree oil have frequently been overlooked during the second half of the 20th century. However, as you read on, you will find certain bacteria and the like are becoming resistant to current treatments or that the treatments have toxic side effects, and people are starting to turn back to these natural substances. And researchers are once again looking into the effectiveness of Melaleuca alternifolia - tea tree oil.

Oil Of Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus is legendary for its ability to clear respiratory and nasal passages of congestion and mucus, thus relieving colds, sinusitis, influenza, croup, emphysema, chronic and acute bronchitis, asthma and dry cough. It is also a superior antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and antiseptic that improves skin problems and combats staph and strep infection, as well as an anti-inflammatory that relieves muscular pain and soothes painful arthritic joints. Eucalyptus is famous for its antiseptic, antibiotic, antiviral and germicidal properties, and it is thought to be the most powerful disinfectant in its class. The oil and resin's antibacterial qualities are so strong that it has been used for sterilizing medical and surgical equipment and was even briefly referred to as "catheter oil." Eucalyptus is effective against many bacterial organisms, especially Staphyloccus, as well as malaria, Bacillus subtilis and several strains of Streptococcus. As an antiviral, Eucalyptus oil is said to exhibit anti-infectious activity against herpes simplex virus. The active anti-herpes virucidal activity was particularly effective when combined with tea tree oil. For further use of Eucalyptus externally, its exceptional antiseptic qualities help to fight infection-causing bacteria, fungi and viruses and work to heal skin lesions, chapped skin, cuts, scrapes, wounds (particularly when infected), abscesses and carbuncles. Its antibacterial and deodorant properties make it effective in treating decaying, discharging wounds, ulcers and gangrenous or cancerous lesions. It is also used to combat dandruff, and bacterial plaque formation on teeth (when chewed as Eucalyptus gum).
