Tea Tree Essential Oil, which flourished more than a century ago in Australia, its native land, is the great oil for infectious states.
It is found in many cosmetic or intimate hygiene products. It is above all the reflex essential oil for all infectious or inflammatory pathologies of the mucous membranes and skin.
But its field of application will not be limited to the body envelope: it will also be part of the aromatic advice in the case of gynecological, urinary, or respiratory disorders. Whether for us, men or for our four-legged friends, it can be used without problem, sometimes even pure. However, the dilution will make it possible to avoid phenomena of irritation and redness, encountered relatively frequently in pure use.
History of Tea Tree Essential Oil
The legend mentions the existence of a lagoon at the time of the Bundjalung, an aboriginal people of Australia, a lagoon which had macerated leaves of Melaleuca, fallen over the years. The Bundjalungs considered the place to be a sacred place, invested with powerful healing power.
It was not until much later, when navigator James Cook and his crew arrived in Australia, that his name was adopted. At the beginning of the 20th century, Australia sought to develop essential oils of interest, and the medicinal properties of the Tea tree were put forward. The industrial production of Tea Tree Essential Oil starts. On the strength of this discovery, the Australian army would have included Tea Tree Essential Oil in the military’s first aid kits until the second half of the 20th century, when synthetic antibiotics definitely took over. But with the phenomena of antibiotic resistance, the essential oil of the Tea tree is currently regaining its letters of nobility.

For more than a century, Tea Tree Essential Oil has been used for antiseptic purposes. The anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-protozoan properties are mainly linked to a-terpineol.
Numerous studies have been carried out on the antimicrobial properties of Tea tree and a clinical trial even demonstrates its effectiveness in the care of chronic wounds with resistant germs (Staphylococcus aureus).
Added to conventional antibiotics or antifungals, Tea tree can either increase the effectiveness of the latter (butenafine, for example, doxycycline, and Tobramycin on E Coli O78K80), or decrease their activity (Ciprofloxacin on Staphylococcus aureus, Amphotericin on Candida).
Infectious skin disorders
In common use, Tea Tree Essential Oil can therefore be used in the treatment of:
- Cutaneous, vaginal, or nail mycosis in men
- Cold sores
- Moderate acne
- Chronic wound with resistant germs or not: superinfected bedsore, ulcer, diabetic wound
And at our 4-legged friends:
- Chronic dermatitis in animals
- Seborrheic dermatitis in dogs (do not administer to the back of the ear, as Tea Tree Essential Oil can be ototoxic. Ask your veterinarian for advice)
- Mycosis in animals
Be careful, some species such as cats are more sensitive to essential oils, ask your veterinarian specialized in aromatherapy.
Other infectious disorders
Tea Tree Essential Oil is for example active against Gardnerella vaginalis, and Candida albicans, 2 germs frequently encountered during genital infections. It could also be effective against Trichomonas vaginalis. Tea Tree Essential Oil can therefore relieve in cases of:
- foreskin infection
Tea Tree Essential Oil, due to its anti-infectious and anti-inflammatory profile, will also be part of the essential oils of interest for ENT infections, laryngitis, and tracheitis.
It has been demonstrated in vitro that the HE of Tea tree reduced the inflammatory state of oral cells, which makes it possible to bring a scientific element to its usual use in the care of the mouth, in the event of mouth ulcers, stomatitis , gingivitis, periodontitis…
- Anti-lice activity: pediculicide on adults and partially on eggs. Two small studies indicate that Tea Tree Essential Oil alone or in combination with lavender appears to be as active or more active than conventional treatments in preventing or treating head lice in humans. In vitro data confirm its insecticidal action against Pediculus humanus capitis, the scientific name of the famous head louse.
- Anti-helminthic activity: on haemonchocus contortus (intestinal worm), in vivo data in gerbils
- Anti-molluscum activity: combined with organic iodine (dermal betadine type) Tea Tree Essential Oil has significantly reduced the lesions caused by this highly contagious but fortunately benign virus. (Study carried out by Markum and Baillie, 2012)
- Anti-tumor activity on melanoma
Precautions for Tea Tree Essential Oil
When James Cook’s crew landed in Australia, the newcomers consumed Melaleuca leaves infused with water and brought samples back to the European continent. This is why it was called the tea tree, although it is not related to tea (Camelia sinensis) from a botanical point of view.
- Do not inhale or instill into the nose before the age of 12
- Do not mix with its antibiotic or antifungal cream without prior medical or pharmaceutical advice
- Always store your essential oils well in a brown or blue glass bottle, away from light and heat
