Tea Tree Org.

 
Organic. There are hundreds of species of Melaleuca growing in Australia. This oil has such a wide range of application, it would be difficult to address all of them here. At the risk of failing to inform you, I will say that I assume that if you are interested in Tea Tree, you are aware of all that it is used for. It can be used topically, internally and as an inhalant. It is non irritating and is highly germicidal.

A study conducted by the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases revealed that replication of a strain of influenza was severely inhibited of the Tea Tree eo was introduced within 2 hours of infection. This suggests that Tea Tree eo interferes in an early stage of replication but after viral adsorption. Tea Tree eo is inexpensive and is pretty stable (has a long shelf life).

Work at the University of Derby and at University of Central England in the UK showed that 'Tea tree oil and lavender oil, when used in isolation, demonstrated unequivocal fungicidal activity' against Trichophyton rubrum. T. rubrum is the culprit in around 80% of fungal nail infections, it invades keratinized tissues and produces a yellowed nail that is thickened and brittle.
