14 Everyday Uses for Tea Tree Oil.

1. Hand Sanitizer

Tea tree oil makes an ideal natural hand sanitizer. Studies have shown that it kills several common bacteria and viruses responsible for causing illness, including E. coli, S. pneumoniae and H. influenzae.

Moreover, a study testing several types of hand wash shows that adding tea tree oil to the cleansers boosted their effectiveness against E. coli.

SUMMARY: Using tree oil as a natural hand sanitizer may help kill a number of germs responsible for colds, flu and other illness.

2. Insect Repellent

Tea tree oil may help keep pesky insects away.

SUMMARY: Tea tree oil has been shown to kill or repel insects. In some cases, it is as effective or more effective than standard insecticides or repellents.

3. Natural Deodorant

Tea tree oil’s antibacterial effects may help control underarm odor related to perspiration. Sweat itself does not smell. However, when secretions from your sweat glands combine with bacteria on your skin, a moderate to strong odor is produced. Your underarm area contains a large concentration of these glands and is mainly responsible for what is commonly referred to as “body odor.” Tea tree oil’s bacteria-fighting properties make it an ideal natural alternative to commercial deodorants and antiperspirants.

SUMMARY: Tea tree oil contains compounds that fight bacteria responsible for body odor. It can be used to make a safe and effective deodorant.

4. Antiseptic for Minor Cuts and Scrapes

Injuries that result in broken skin make it easy for germs to enter your bloodstream, which can lead to infection. Tea tree oil can be used to treat and disinfect minor cuts and abrasions by killing S. aureus and other bacteria that can cause infection in open wounds.

To disinfect a cut or scrape, follow these steps:

  1. Clean the cut thoroughly with plain soap and water
  2. Mix one drop of tea tree oil with one teaspoon of coconut oil
  3. Apply a small amount of the mixture to the injury and cover with a bandage
  4. Repeat this process once or twice daily until a scab has formed

SUMMARY: Applying a mixture of tea tree oil and coconut oil can help prevent minor cuts and abrasions from becoming infected.

5. Boost Wound Healing

In addition to preventing infection in cuts and abrasions, tea tree oil may also encourage wound healing. Tea tree oil helps reduce inflammation and triggers the activity of white blood cells that are instrumental in the healing process. A few drops of tea tree oil can be added to wound dressing each time a new dressing is applied.

SUMMARY: Tea tree oil may help speed wound healing by reducing inflammation and increasing white blood cell activity.

6. Fight Acne

Tea tree oil can be a powerful weapon against acne. It helps reduce the amount and overall severity of acne.

SUMMARY: Tea tree oil reduces the number of lesions and severity of acne.

7. Get Rid of Nail Fungus

Fungal nail infections are quite common. Although they aren’t dangerous, they can be unsightly. There are medications that can treat nail fungus, though some people may prefer a more natural approach.

Tea tree oil has been shown to help get rid of nail fungus when used alone or in combination with other natural remedies (14Trusted Source, 15Trusted Source).

In a controlled study, people with nail fungus used straight tea tree oil or an antifungal medication for six months. At the end of the study, about 60% of people in each group experienced partial or full resolution of the fungus (15Trusted Source).

You can use a few drops of tea tree oil alone or mix it with an equal amount of coconut oil and apply it to the affected area. Be sure to wash your hands immediately after applying in order to avoid spreading the fungus to other areas.

SUMMARY:Tea tree oil appears to be as effective against fungal nail infections as antifungal medications applied to the area.

8. Chemical-Free Mouthwash

Tea tree oil may fight germs that cause tooth decay and bad breath.

Tea tree oil may be effective against plaque-causing bacteria. What’s more, Tea Tree’s taste is not too objectionable.

SUMMARY: Tea tree oil may be diluted with water to create a mouthwash that helps fight bad breath and dental plaque.

9. All-Purpose Cleaner

Tea tree oil makes a great all-purpose cleaner that also sanitizes surfaces, plus, it does so without leaving traces of chemicals you wouldn’t want your family members or pets coming in contact with.

SUMMARY: Tea tree oil can be mixed with water and vinegar to create a chemical-free, all-purpose cleaner for your home.

10. Soothe Skin Inflammation

Tea tree oil may help relieve inflamed skin. A common form of skin irritation is contact dermatitis, which occurs when skin comes in contact with an allergen, such as nickel. Exposure to the allergen leads to red, itchy and sometimes painful skin. Applying tea tree oil may help reduce the severity of these symptoms.

In addition, tea tree oil may provide relief from bug bite reactions by reducing the itching, redness and swelling that occurs when your body releases histamine to defend against the insect’s saliva .

 

SUMMARY:Applying a tea tree oil mixture may help combat skin inflammation related to contact dermatitis or insect bites.

11. Control Dandruff

Dandruff, or white flakes of dead skin that fall from the scalp, isn’t dangerous, but can be annoying and embarrassing. Tea tree oil’s may be effective in treating dandruff.

SUMMARY: Tea tree oil may help reduce the severity of dandruff and improve other symptoms.

12. Treat Athlete’s Foot

Athlete’s foot can be frustratingly hard to control. Known medically as tinea pedis, athlete’s foot is a contagious fungal infection on the feet that can also spread to the toenails and hands. Symptoms include peeling, cracking, blisters and redness. Antifungal medications are considered standard treatment for athlete’s foot. Tea tree oil may be an effective alternative for relieving symptoms,

SUMMARY: Tea tree oil’s antifungal properties may help alleviate symptoms of athlete’s foot.

13. Banish Mold on Fruits and Vegetables

Fresh produce is undeniably delicious and healthy. Unfortunately, it’s also susceptible to the growth of gray mold known as Botrytis cinerea, particularly in warm, moist climates.

Tea tree oil’s antifungal compounds terpinen-4-ol and 1,8-cineole may help reduce the growth of this mold on fruits and vegetables.

SUMMARY: Tea tree oil contains compounds that help fight the growth of mold on fruits and vegetables. Adding tea tree oil to water when rinsing produce may help your produce remain mold-free.

14. Relieve Psoriasis

Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition characterized by outbreaks of red, itchy, scaly skin. Although there are medications that can improve symptoms, the condition itself is chronic and there is no known cure.

Tea tree oil contains anti-inflammatory compounds, which may be helpful for easing psoriasis symptoms.

SUMMARY: Applying a mixture of tea tree oil and coconut oil may help relieve the symptoms of psoriasis.
