Tea Tree has been revered for its usefulness by the aboriginal people of Australia for many hundreds of years; however, they use the leaves directly, not the distilled essential oil.world of herbology and has won a reputation as a “cure all” because of its use in treating fungal, viral and bacterial infections. Its germicidal action is not as strong as that of more aggressive oils like oregano; however, its great advantage is that it is mild and not a skin irritant, so it can be applied for long periods of time.
Tea Tree is also known for its remarkable skin-healing properties and is often suggested to help treat everything from acne, bug bites and sunburn to athlete's foot and dandruff. Its antiseptic and analgesic properties make it perfect for cleaning wounds and treating all manner of infections, while offering soothing pain relief.

Tea Tree Essential Oil does not kill all bacteria. Manuka Essential Oil, another mild antibacterial oil, kills a much wider array of bacteria.
