The health benefits of tea tree oil can be attributed to its antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic, antiviral, balsamic, expectorant, fungicide, insecticide, and stimulant factors.
The thing that makes this oil work is its composition. Though the oil is made up of over a 100 components, its major constituents include terpene hydrocarbons – monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, and their respective alcohols. Terpinen-4-ol is a major component, as we already saw. Another component called 1,8-cineole could be responsible for the adverse reactions tea tree oil might cause.
Three Major Benefits Of Using Tea Tree Oil For Bath:
1. Treats Acne: Apart from applying cotton balls soaked in this oil on the acne, you can also take bath in warm water mixed with drops of tea tree oil.
2. Fights Psoriasis And Infections: Tea tree oil has antiviral and antibacterial benefits. Therefore, a bath in water mixed with tea tree oil can be helpful in reducing this skin condition. It can also be effective in curing infections of the nails, fingers, and legs.
3. Helps Alleviate Body Aches: Tea tree oil baths can be effective in reducing various types of pain and aches in the body. After mixing with olive or coconut oil, the oil can be massaged on those areas that are affected or are in pain.
