Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) is a potent antibacterial, antifungal, and natural antiseptic. Recent studies have also attributed this therapeutic herb with antiviral capabilities. It successfully treats a wide variety of skin problems including fungal infections on nails, athlete’s foot, ringworm, scalp or skin fungi, cuts, scrapes, staphylococcal infections, canker sores, blisters, rashes, dermatitis, and eczema, to name a few.
An excellent insect repellent, its natural solvent properties also help dissolve insect toxin in existing bites to stop itching and allow the bite area to heal faster. (Find this in Emu Oil Lip Balms)
