That can be good news, because there are often fewer side effects with treatments like tea tree oil when a stronger antiseptic may not be necessary.
Tea tree oil has been tested since the 1920's, but not all of the research has been scientifically documented, and some is outdated, and therefore viewed as merely anecdotal.
Just looking at the research available, natural skin treatments can be a viable alternative, especially if you have sensitive skin, or want to stay away from a chemical treatment like Benzyl peroxide.
Some people feel that by a proper diet and skincare regimen skin blemishes can be reduced, even though there are lots of food myths concerning what causes or prevents it.
Eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, drinking enough water to help your body flush away waste products, and taking a great multivitamin and mineral complex, and perhaps additional nutritional support from an herbal complex, can all help your body have the necessary nutrients to build healthy skin and less acne.
I have an immense amount of information regarding tea tree oil and how it can aid the human body... Much is on this website. If you have any questions that have been unanswered feel free to fill out the "Contact" form.
I Love Spreading the Word About Tea Tree Oil :-)
Organic Tea Tree oil, harder to find, and more costly because it is produced in more labor intensive and lower yield plantations, can be used the same way as other fine quality tea tree oil.
Growing up in Laguna Beach, the hippies used to always say "Don't Panic, It's Organic". Great advice in a world full of GMO's (genetically modified organisms)
A product cannot carry the organic seal unless it's certified GMO free.
