Tea Tree Oil for Acne
You’ve probably heard that tea tree oil is a fantastic option for acne treatment, but you may be wondering what tea tree oil actually is:
Tea tree oil is distilled from the leaves and twigs of Melaleuca alternifolia, which is native to Australia. It has been used by Aboriginal communities as a medicine for thousands of years—the leaves were crushed and applied as a paste to wounds and skin abrasions, and oils from the crushed leaves were also used to treat sore throats and coughs. For many years western medicine has acknowledged that tea tree oil is an effective topical antiseptic and antifungal treatment, and one study found that tea tree oil worked as well as 5% benzoyl peroxide in controlling the symptoms of acne.
