(NaturalNews) Tea tree oil, sometimes referred to as melaleuca, acts as a powerful anti-bacterial and anti-viral agent that was initially found and used by aboriginals. The herb has been praised for hundreds of years because of its effectiveness against a wide range of invasive organisms such as fungi, bacteria and viruses. It will definitely reinforce your immune system and help protect against infectious diseases such as chicken pox, shingles, measles, flu and cold sores.

Its incredible health benefits certainly haven't remained a well kept secret, thanks to the many studies conducted in the last few years by the scientific community. Tea tree oil, which has a similar scent to nutmeg, is obtained by steaming the tea tree leaves until you can press the oil right out of them.

Tea tree oil will work wonders with practically all bacterial and fungal infections but especially with health conditions affecting the skin. It will greatly assist anyone looking to treat skin problems such as oily skin, blisters, acne, abscesses, sun burns, athlete's foot, insect bites, rashes, warts, herpes, dandruff or any other minor wounds and irritations.

Can tea tree oil replace prescription drugs to effectively treat acne ?

The answer to this question is obviously yes. Studies have shown that, although it may initially take a little longer to see positive effects, once it kicks in, not only is it on par with benzoyl peroxide, but, most importantly, it will limit the side effects such as irritations, rashes, burning sensations or dryness. If you've had acne before, you're definitely well aware of how annoying the side effects can be. Prior to applying a few diluted drops of the oil on your face, it is recommended to test it on a less sensitive part of your body to make sure no undesired reactions will occur.

Back in 2010, Sweden's Skane University Hospital initiated scientific tests in order to assess various therapeutic agents' ability to fight off contact dermatitis. It turns out that tea tee oil was able to reduce allergic contact dermatitis by 40.5%, which is good enough for a close second place out of the 6 agents tested. So far, the results point to the fact that it should definitely be regarded as an effective anti-eczematic agent, at the very least superior to zinc oxide or clobetasone butyrate.

In 2008, a study focusing on in vitro toxicity came to the conclusion that tea tree oil was a more reliable treatment against head lice than a popular pharmaceutical drug named permethrin.

Do you suffer from regular or occasional dandruff ? If so, it was shown that with only a 5% concentration of tea tree oil, a shampoo had the ability to effectively treat malassezia furfur, which is the most common factor causing dandruff.
