Tea Tree Oil is the extracted oil from Melaleuca altermifolia tree native to Australia. This is essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves of the plant.
Tea tree oil and lavender oil are two essential oils that can be applied directly on the skin in small amounts. Apply one or two drops to cuts, bug bites, blisters, warts, cold sores, shingles and chicken pox lesions.
Tea tree oil has a wide range of applications. It is effective against bacteria, fungi and viruses.
1. Fungal Infections of the skin. See more info below.
Ringworm, athletes foot, jock itch, nail infections.
Feet: Add 5 drops to a pan of warm bath and soak the feet or hands daily.
See additional info at end of article for athletes foot.
2. Acne. See treatment info at end of article.
3. Cold sores. Dab it on the area at the first sign of a blister.
4. Dandruff: Put a few drops in your shampoo to help with dandruff and an itchy scalp.
5. Bee stings
6. Lice – apply directly onto the scalp – leave for 40 minutes and wash the hair. Repeat every other day for 2 weeks.
7. Stimulates the immune system.
8. Fight colds and flu. Use tea tree oil in the bath at the first signs of a cold or flu.
Vapor therapy helps with colds and other respiratory ailments. Add 5 drops to a bowl of hot water and inhale the vapors while draping a towel over your head for several minutes.
Add 5 drops to a warm bath during illness.
9. Massage. Add a few drops to carrier oil such as jojoba oil. The tea tree oil massage helps with arthritis, dermatitis, skin infections, and sweaty feet.
10. Mouth ulcers and sore gums. Gargle with 3 drops diluted in a glass of water. DO NOT SWALLOW!
11. Flea treatment for pets. Spray the coat with a solution of 2 drops of Tea Tree in 1 cup of warm water. Avoid the eyes. Repeat at 5 day intervals until clear.
12. Remove chewing gum can from hair or clothing by applying tea tree oil.
13. For dust mites and mold in clothing - Use 1/2 cup liquid Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap, 1/2 cup borax, and 1/2 cup washing (not baking) soda, whirred together in the mixer until powdery. A half-tablespoon per load should be all you need.
14. Add several drops of straight tea tree oil to regular detergent as you add it to the wash.
15. All purpose cleaner - Mix a few drops of tea tree with a few drops of Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds. Dilute in a spray bottle
Fungal Infections of the skin - Apply neat tea tree to the affected areas after washing and drying the feet thoroughly. 2 -3 drops daily until cleared. Also try soaking the feet for 10 minutes a day in a foot bath containing warm water and 10 drops of tea tree oil.
Rare hypersensitivity reactions may occur. Apply only a small amount when first using tea tree oil. Discontinue use if irritation appears. The oil may burn if it comes in contact with the eyes, nose or mouth. The oil should not be applied to non-fungal rashes or to broken skin. Do not take the oil internally.
What are the natural treatments for athlete's foot recommended by Dr. Weil:
“Expose your feet to fresh air and sunlight. Keep them clean and dry - instead of closed shoes, wear sandals if you can. An excellent home remedy is tea tree oil, extracted from the leaves of Melaleuca alternifolia. This works as well as or better than pharmaceutical antifungal products. Apply a light coating to the affected area two or three times a day, and continue to apply it for two weeks after signs of the infection have disappeared to make sure the fungus is eradicated. Tea-tree oil will also clear up fungal infections of the toenails or fingernails, conditions that are usually difficult to cure, even with strong systemic antifungals.”
According to naturopathic and homeopathic doctor Asa Hershoff, DC, of Los Angeles and San Francisco, tea tree oil has antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties and stimulates the immune system.
"It's a reliable antiseptic," says Hershoff, author of Homeopathic Remedies: A Quick and Easy Guide to Common Disorders and Their Homeopathic Treatments. "There just aren't that many substances that have all the therapeutic applications that tea tree oil does." And though tea tree oil is slower to show benefits than benzoyl peroxide, says Hershoff, it results in less itching, scaling, and irritation.
California aesthetician Brenda Harper says she believes that tea tree oil should be in every medicine cabinet. She uses it regularly with clients who suffer from acne, with "wonderful results," she says.
"Used in conjunction with glycolic acid, which is an exfoliant, tea tree oil helps destroy the bacteria that can cause acne flare-ups," she explains.
Harper says that a severe case of acne will respond to daily treatments within 6 months. She recommends dabbing tea tree oil on the affected areas, waiting 15 minutes, and then applying glycolic acid. Make sure the skin is perfectly clean before beginning, she adds.
Tea tree oil can also be used preventively, Harper says. "If you're acne-prone, apply it regularly to keep breakouts from occurring." For occasional flare-ups, an application of tea tree oil should show results within a day.

But, factors such as stress, environmental conditions or use of certain substances can affect the natural balance of friendly microbes.
Probiotics support the normal gastrointestinal balance between good and potentially harmful bacteria. Benefits include:
- Improves immune system function
- Helps maintain female vaginal and urinary tract health
- Helps promote intestinal health and regular bowel function
- Helps synthesize B vitamins
- Helps maintain cholesterol leels that are already in the normal range
"Taking a good probiotic and following sound dietary principles provide the best ways I’ve found to promote your digestive health." - - Dr. Joseph Mercola
It will not help to invest in a probiotic before you change your diet! Get the sugar out first!
According to www.mercola.com:
- About 80% of your immune system resides in your
- 500 species of bacteria live inside you.
- About one hundred trillion bacteria live inside you — more than TEN TIMES the number
of cells you have in your entire body.
- The weight of these bacteria constitutes about two to three pounds.
- Some of these bacteria are referred to as "good" and some as "bad".
- The ideal balance between them is 85% good and 15% bad.
- This ratio between the "good" bacteria and the "bad" bacteria
becomes one of the critical factors determining your optimal health.
- It is also recommended after colon cleansing.
Dr. Andrew Weil recommends probiotics for digestive problems, "Studies suggest they can help prevent and treat many kinds of diarrhea: antibiotic-related, infections and traveler's. They've been shown to benefit people with irritable bowel syndrome, who may have altered levels of certain bacteria in the gut, and those with inflammatory bowel disease. And I suggest probiotics to people with sluggish digestion or excessive gas. I recommend taking probiotic supplements with a meal to buffer stomach acids. To avoid traveler's diarrhea, I start taking a probiotic several days before my departure for a developing country and continue until a few days after my return. In general, probiotic supplements seem to be extremely safe, and it's fine to take them indefinitely--on a daily basis or a few times a week--for chronic health concerns."

From Dr. Bronner's website:
On April 28, 2008, after discussions with offending “organic cheater” companies failed to resolve core issues, Dr. Bronner’s filed a lawsuit in California Superior Court. Click here to read our press release, and here to download our brief (pdf 300kb). We remain optimistic that various companies will settle with us according to the straightforward settlement agreement we offered (click here to read pdf 106kb).
Click here to read the San Francisco Chronicle article. We are taking necessary and dramatic steps in concert with the Organic Consumers Association “Coming Clean” Campaign, to clean up the natural personal care industry.
Dr. Bronner would be rather incensed by the rampant organic fraud perpetrated by companies and brands that should know better, but pumped about how we are stepping up with his shoes to address the situation, just as he would have done. Click here to learn more.

Please see my previous post on Lavender.
I will be posting on each of the top five essential oils in order to provide more information.
By Dr. Joseph Mercola
with Rachael Droege
Essential oils carry the physical properties of flowers and plants in a highly concentrated form. They are, in short, the essence of the plant and can provide therapeutic benefits in very small amounts. The particles in essential oils, which come from various parts of the plant such as the flowers, twigs, leaves or bark, can be inhaled and absorbed through the skin and their use can be traced back for thousands of years. Essential oils were even used in ancient Egyptian times, and were made by soaking plants in oil and then filtering the oil through a linen bag.
Most essential oils have antibacterial qualities and have varying physical and emotional effects depending on the oil, such as stimulation, relaxation, pain relief and healing. The most common ways to use essential oils include:
Massaging them (blended with a carrier oil) into the skin
Adding them to bathwater
Using them in a compress
Burning them in a diffuser
In The Maker’s Diet, Dr. Jordan Rubin recommends 14 essential oils that have unique healing properties. He suggests putting five to 10 drops (total) of these "top healing oils" into a warm bath for a real "healing treat." Below you will find five beneficial essential oils along with their uses. I encourage you to check out The Maker’s Diet to learn more about some of the more exotic, but highly effective, essential oils available.
I'd also like to point out that essential oils are not the same thing as fragrance oils. Essential oils come from plants while fragrance oils are artificially created and often contain synthetic chemicals. While they may smell good and are typically less expensive, they will not give you the therapeutic benefits of organic essential oils--and you don't want to be inhaling any synthetic chemicals! So, please be sure that the essential oil you use is of the highest quality and 100 percent pure.

Where to buy Young Living Essential Oils
Caution: Essential oils can produce very strong and significant changes in tiny amounts. They must be used with caution, especially during pregnancy. It is important to consult someone knowledgeable in aromatherapy before experimenting with these oils.
* Although sandalwood is a beneficial oil, the trees must be felled to collect the product and there has been much over-harvesting. Indian sandalwood is controlled by the Indian government, which allows a limited amount of the essential oil to be traded on the world market. However, due to its high value sandalwood may be produced illegally without replanting programs in place. There is concern that this oil should be on the endangered list and many essential oil producers are contemplating not selling it, so you may want to seek an alternative oil, such as Western Australian sandalwood.
