Common Uses of Tea Tree Essential Oil

Tea Tree Oil Properties

Tea Tree Oil is one of the most widely used essential oils in aromatherapy. One of the critical components of Tea Tree Oil is terpinene-4-ol, which has been shown in studies (click here for link) to kill certain bacteria, viruses and fungi. In addition, other studies (click here for link) have shown that Terpinen-4-ol can increase the activity of white blood cells, helping to fight germs and foreign invaders.

These properties give Tea Tree its reputation for dealing with fungal and bacterial problems.


Because of the antifungal and antibacterial properties of Tea Tree, it is helpful for use on problem skin such as Teenage and acne-prone skin. Studies (link) have found Tea Tree Oil kills several common bacteria, these bacteria include E.coli, S.pneumoniae and H. influenzae.

The effectiveness of Tea Tree with acne prone skin was shown in a variety of studies (link 1, link 2, link 3). One study showed that a 5% Tea Tree Gel was nearly 6X more effective at reducing lesions than a placebo (link). Compared to benzoyl peroxide, one of the most common acne medications, another study (link) showed Tea Tree to be as effective.

In another study (link), it was shown that adding Tea Tree Oil to a cleanser boosted the cleanser’s effectiveness against E.Coli.

Tea Tree works as a natural deodorant, with the antibacterial properties helping to clear underarm perspiration.

In addition to the significant properties above, Tea Tree Oil has been shown to help with nail fungus and skin inflammation, control dandruff, and treat athletes’ feet.



Tea Tree oil can be helpful for those with chronic stress and anxiety issues, with its relaxing effect on the body.
Tea Tree has been found in studies (1, 2, 3) to help reduce inflammation and trigger white blood cells’ activity, that is important for wound healing.
A calming oil that blends beautifully with Lavender to promote a stress free ambiance.
