Have you heard about the wonders of Tea Tree Oil?
Tea Tree Oil has a long history of traditional use as an antiseptic, antifungal, and antibacterial.
But I keep it in my medicine cabinet for yeast related conditions. My family has used it to successfully treat dandruff, acne, athlete's foot, bad breath and inflamed gums. But if you Google "tea tree oil uses" you'll find an exhaustive list of conditions as well as recipes for treatment.
Here's the short list:
- Athlete's Foot
- Bad Breath
- Fungal Toenails
- Periodontal Disease
- Yeast Infection
WARNING: Under no circumstances is tea tree oil to be taken internally.
Tea Tree Oil is for topical use only. When used in the mouth, it should be spit out and rinsed thoroughly.
Those with sensitive skin are encouraged to test tea tree oil by applying a small amount to the inner arm. Any allergic reaction or irritation will manifest within a few minutes. Dilute tea tree oil in an equal quantity of carrier oil or mix it with alcohol and water before trying another patch test. Allergic reactions to tea tree oil are unusual; reactions to diluted tea tree oil are rare. Discontinue use if allergic reaction occurs.
