Many aboriginal communities in Australia considered Tea Tree, an indigenous plant, an antiseptic for skin conditions and crushed the leaves to apply them to cuts, burns and infections. In the 1920s a paper was published that broadened its notoriety and made it a popular antiseptic, replacing the traditional carbolic acid. It’s popularity has grown in the past decade as we again found a solution in nature.
A common breeding ground for mold and bacteria resides in your bathroom. Your toothbrush can benefit from regular disinfecting from just an occasional drop of Tea Tree. For cleaning mold and mildew, a concentrated liquid is the perfect natural treatment and disinfectant for the safety of your family. Because of it’s strong antibacterial properties, it has been studied for effectiveness in treating MRSA and other pathogenic infections in a study from 2004. On a smaller scale it is helpful treating athletes foot, lice, dandruff and especially fungal infections.
A natural pest control, it repels ants and other insects and is safe for children and pets. It even kills the organisms lurking in your washing machine and dishwasher! An all around healthy alternative to the chemicals we use, it can be added to most cleaning regimens and in small amounts to shampoo to fight dandruff, on a toothbrush to combat gingivitis, to nail fungus and so much more.
