Safely Remove Skin Tags with Tea Tree Oil Method
Tea Tree Oil is also useful for controling acne but there are some cautions to be aware of. Here are some additional facts that you should know about Tea Tree Oil before you use it.
Why do people take tea tree oil?Tea tree oil has been used traditionally as a topical antiseptic and antifungal treatment. One study found that tea tree oil worked as well as 5% benzoyl peroxide in controlling the symptoms of acne. It appears to be effective with toenail fungus and possibly athlete’s foot. Studies of tea tree oil for other conditions such as gum disease, vaginal infections, and dandruff have been inconclusive.
Tea tree oil has been proposed as a topical treatment for herpes labalis (the common cold sore), but it does not appear to be effective. Laboratory studies have shown that tea tree oil was effective against MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), a type of staph infection that’s resistant to many antibiotics. Although these studies are promising, more research needs to be done.
Can you get tea tree oil naturally from foods?There are no natural food sources of tea tree oil. Because of its toxicity, tea tree oil should never be swallowed.
