Can tea tree oil really get rid of acne? The answer seems to be “Yes” in both theory and practice. This extract for the tea tree in Australia is a natural antiseptic and antifungal agent which works well for many people. It is in the role of antiseptic that it helps in acne prevention and treatment. When you apply this natural oil on your blackheads and whiteheads, it prevents the bacterial infection from setting in and creating pimples. Applied on your pimples, it helps to kill the bacteria and promotes healing.
Anytime I get a whitehead on my face, I apply a small amount of the oil on a cotton ball and then dab that on the whitehead 2 times. Within 24 hours the whitehead vanishes almost every time.
Australian aboriginees crushed the leaves and used them on burns, cuts, and skin infections. Today this oil is known for its antimicrobial and antifungal properties. It’s used for skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne, and is also recommended for fungal infections like thrush, yeast infection, and athlete’s foot.

Nail fungus-When nails of a human body are infected by some destructive fungi called dermatophytes (Trichophyton Rubrum, Candida, etc.) or by some damaging yeasts or molds, white or yellow spots are seen below top of the nails. These fungi then go deeper and make the nails discolor and thicken. Fragmenting edges, which trigger a lot of problems for the victim, are found on the nails subsequently. Nails are generally made susceptible to these fungi when exposed to damp or warm environments, for instance, shower floorboards or perspiring shoes.
Maybe you have heard of MRSA. This is an antibiotic-resistant form of the bacterium that causes staph infections. The problem with antibiotic-resistant infections, as you might suppose, is that antibiotics have little or nothing to offer to stop them.
I’ll leave you with one last quick and easy tip for those fly-away strands. Start with first using a few drops of the oil and rubbing it between your palms. Then apply it to the unruly strands that need it. A fast way to tame the frizz is by using slightly more of the oil. Work the oil into the hair starting from at the tips slowly working back up towards the roots. This does wonders on straight as well as curly hair leaving you with a nice leave-in moisturizing treatment as well.
