The main components of tea tree are terpene hydrocarbons, monoterpenes, and sesquiterpenes compounds, which provide the antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral functions. There are more than hundred different chemical components of which terpinen-4-ol and alpha- terpineol are the most active compounds. The hydrocarbons are aromatic and can pass through air, skin pores, and mucus membranes. Hence, tea tree oil is mainly used for topical application and aromatically to eliminate germs, and fight and keep infections away.
For those with sensitive skin, tea tree oil may cause an adverse reaction. Keeping the oil away from eyes, contact lenses, inner nose and other sensitive parts of the skin are important. It has a sharp camphor-like odor and produces a menthol-like cooling effect. It may cause a burning sensation on the skin if applied excessively. Tea tree oil should not be orally consumed and must be immediately spitted out, if taken. A concentration of 5-10% is normal in topical products and may not cause any allergies and skin rashes. However, any concentration beyond that can cause dermatitis reactions.
Tea tree oil must not be used directly on skin. It must be diluted with other carrier oils such as olive oil, coconut oil, or almond oil. Exposure to eyes must be avoided as it may cause redness and irritation. This oil must not be taken orally by pregnant and breastfeeding women due to allergic reactions it can cause.
The Right Tea Tree Oil
Always ensure that you are buying 100% pure essential oil by checking the correct species name which is usually given on the label. Also look for oil that offers organic and therapeutic benefits.
