The many Uses Of
TEA TREE OIL

Tea Tree Oil, a complex of over 100 naturally occurring compounds, is a clear & colourless to pale yellow liquid with a characteristic odor. A broad range of cosmetic and therapeutic products include Australian Tea Tree Oil for its healing powers, with clinical trials proving the oilís effectiveness against acne, tinea, vaginal infection and as a useful treatment for burns.

Tea Tree Oil has a long history of use as an herbal medicine. In recent years, biochemists and aromatherapists defined the therapeutic nature of tea tree essential oil, and as a result, tea tree has become widely popular as an alternative remedy.

The key to Tea Tree Oil's medicinal effectiveness is two chemical constituents found in the oil -- cineole and terpinen. Although both are bactericidal and germicidal, cineole can be a powerful skin irritant. Therefore, tea tree oils with low cineole and high terpinen contents are preferred.

Because the terpinen found in tea tree oil is so mild, it can soothe cuts, scratches, sunburn and cold sores. Since it is non-irritating, you can apply a single drop of the oil directly to minor injuries once or twice a day. Some of the most effective aromatherapy uses for tea tree oil are cosmetic in nature.

Tea tree has a marked oil-dissolving and dispersing action which can help alleviate overly oily skin. Combined with water, it works well as a facial skin astringent. A few drops of the oil massaged directly into the scalp will gently invigorate the scalp and help lift greasy deposits from the hair shaft before shampooing.

"These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.

The above is a Government ORDERED statement.
It is NOT based in either reality or sanity.
Just like our Government.

In a landmark decision on Friday, Jan. 15, 1999, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that the health claim rules imposed by the FDA unconstitutional and in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act. The court instructed the FDA to define "significant scientific agreement" for health claims on dietary supplement labels, and instructed the FDA to allow the use of disclaimers on labels rather than to suppress these claims outright. The court further held that four FDA Final rules (prohibiting certain nutrient disease relationship claims) invalid under the first Amendment to the Constitution.
