Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil
Australian Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tree Oil is a clear to very pale brown hydrophobic essential oil.

Tea Tree Oil is a very strong antiseptic which has also antifungal properties. It can be used to disinfect wounds and it is an effective treatment for fungal infections of the skin.

Tea Tree Oil does not cause a "burning pain" as opposed to alcohol or iodine based antiseptics when applied on wounds. Especially children prefer for this reason Tea Tree Oil over classic disinfectants.

Tea Tree Oil can only be used externally. It is toxic when swallowed. Avoid contact with eyes. Tea tree oil may cause hearing loss when used in the ears.
