Properties Beneficial To The Mind, Emotions And Spirit: Although generally used more for its powerful effects on the physical body, tea tree is, however, refreshing and revitalizing, especially after shock or hysteria. Used with general emotional debility, it can be particularly helpful if you are suffering from nervous exhaustion.
Of Interest: Tea tree is native to Australia, but no relation to the popular beverage. It might come as a surprise to learn that tea tree comes from the same family as other oil-producing plants, such as clove, cajeput, eucalyptus, myrtle and niaouli, and also gooseberry, pomegranate, red pepper and bay.
There are around three hundred species and sub-species of tea tree. The tree thrives in marshy areas and is also known locally as 'paper bark', as its bark peels off the trunk. It acquired its modern name during the 18th century, when Captain James Cook and his crew made the fragrant leaves into a refreshing herbal tea.
Australian Aborigines, who have long recognized its many virtues, have used tea tree in their medications - especially to treat infected wounds - for centuries. English settlers followed their example and used the leaves when their medical supplies became unobtainable.
Tea tree was introduced to Europe around 1927, and its antiseptic properties were quickly recognized and utilized. During World War Two tea tree was used in munitions factories for skin injuries, and was in all military aid kits in tropical regions.
Although long recognized in homeopathy, tea tree is a relatively new addition to aromatherapy. However, its popularity has spread quickly, in main part due to its immuno-stimulating effect. The oil is unusual in that it is active against all three categories of infectious organisms; viruses, bacteria and fungi. When the body is threatened by these, tea tree increases its ability to respond by stimulating the immune system.
In 1985 the French physician, Paul Belaiche, effectively treated the yeast infection candida albacans with tea tree oil. In 1996 at the University of Liegzig in Germany, tea tree was tested on numerous strains of various organisms, and proved to inhibit the growth of every single strain of fungi tested. In France, Australia and America research has been carried out on its anti-fungal and antiviral properties in treating a range of skin disorders. Today it is the subject of numerous international research studies.
The antiseptic action of this oil is believed to be one hundred times more powerful than carbolic acid, without being poisonous to humans. Recent tests show it to be more effective in weaker solutions, i.e. less than 2%, than it is neat. Tea tree is frequently used in dental and surgical procedures, as well as added to soaps, deodorants, skin and hair care products, disinfectants and air fresheners.
Properties Beneficial To The Physical Body: Probably the most important function of tea tree is to help the immune system to fight off infectious diseases. It activates the white corpuscles to defend against invading bacteria and organisms, helps shorten the duration of an illness and restore vitality during convalescence.
All this, plus the fact it is antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal, make it extremely useful in a wide range of conditions too numerous to mention, but including childhood infectious diseases, respiratory and genito-urinary tract infections, herpes, ringworm, toothache and spider and scorpion bites. It is believed to reduce post-operative shock, and to offer protection against X-ray therapy in breast cancer treatment. It may be helpful in treating glandular fever, and is being tested for possible uses with AIDS patients.
Tea tree is very cleansing to the skin, making it useful for spots, blemishes, acne, boils, and other skin diseases like athletes foot and warts. Also try it for dry scalp, dandruff, burns, sores, and the lesions caused by chicken pox and shingles. For nappy rash add a few drops of tea tree to your baby's protective skin cream.
Tea-Tree Oil Blending Suggestions: Tea tree is inclined to overpower a blend, so use sparingly. You may like to combine it with cinnamon, clove, cypress, eucalyptus, ginger, lavender, lemon, mandarin, orange and rosemary.
Alternative Suggestions For Use: Diffuse in your home and work place, especially during the cold and flu season, to cleanse the air and prevent the spread of infection.
Essential Safety Precautions: While considered a relatively safe oil, tea tree may cause irritation to sensitive skin. Use with caution during pregnancy. Although practitioners may advise otherwise, tea tree is commonly used undiluted, but always do a patch test first on the inside of your arm and wait ten minutes for any reaction.
Do not use essential oils undiluted or take internally without the guidance of a qualified practitioner. The information contained here is for general interest and is not intended to replace medical diagnosis or treatment.
