Essential oils seem to be very famous for their different uses and applications, but, amongst essential oils, there are some that are even more famous like tea tree oil, the Australian wonder oil that has incredible uses and properties that can help you in various ways.
This miraculous product can be found in many remedies because of its incredible properties. For that reason, we decided to share with you 10 unexpected health effects of tea tree oil.
1. Clear up acne
To treat acne, apply 5% tea tree oil to the affected skin twice a day for 15 days to reduce acne symptoms. The reason behind 15 days is the fact that tea tree oil works slowly and it does not cause any damage to the skin. In fact, tea tree oil has the same results as famous acne treatments like Benzac AC or Oxy-5.
2. Heal Scars
Tea tree oil can be a cicatrizant which gives it the ability to heal zounds and protect them from infections fast enough. Also, tea tree oil has an incredible ability to remove leftover acne marks and reduce scars.
3. Stop smelly feet
Smelly feet are one of the worst things one could have. To deal with this bad-smelling condition, mix equal parts of cornstarch and baking soda, and add in 10 drops of lavender oil and 10 drops of tea tree oil. When you’re done with that, apply the obtained powder to your feet and shoes to kill rogue bacteria and clear out the nasty smell.
4. Cure fungal nail infections
Apply 100% tea tree oil on the affected nail twice a day for 6 consecutive months. If you have doubts about this, then let me tell you that there are studies that found out that tea tree oil can improve the appearance of the nail in half that period. In fact, tea tree oil is so good, it can be compared to Funqoid and Lotrimin, two powerhouses when it comes to pharmaceutical solutions.
5. Have smoother skin
Tea tree oil contains melaleuca oil that has a strong antioxidant property amongst many other important as well that can improve the look of wrinkles and age spots.
