The Power of Tea Tree Oil for Eczema

tea tree oil for eczema

Tea tree oil comes from the leaves of the Australian tea tree melaleuca alternifolia. This small tree is native to Australia. Aboriginal Australians have collected tea tree oil from the tree’s leaves and have used it as a traditional medicine for cuts and wounds for hundreds of years. 

Tea tree oil has been used to treat acne, nail fungus, insect bites, cuts and scrapes, skin infections, ringworm, athlete’s foot, lice, dandruff, vaginitis, psoriasis, and eczema. It has also been used as a natural hand sanitizer, insect repellent, deodorant, and mouthwash. 

Tea tree oil has antimicrobial, antiseptic, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties that make it ideal to support those suffering from eczema. 

Its antimicrobial properties fight attacking microbial agents that try to take advantage of the skin’s vulnerable outer layer. The antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties deliver a soothing effect, which goes a long way in relieving the red, itchy rash that eczema sufferers experience.

The tea tree oil used in Eczema Care Cream is 100% pure, certified organic Australian tea tree oil. It does not include any GMOs, parabens, petrolatum, phthalates, nor sulfates. 

It’s one of the core ingredients of Eczema Care Cream and helps provides real eczema relief with a refreshing aroma.
