Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil (Melaleuca Alternifolia) is an aromatherapy essential oil that comes from the leaves of the tea tree, a tall evergreen tree native to Australia. The oil is a widely used disinfectant and antiseptic that kills fungus and a broad range of bacteria, including the acne bacteria. The active substances in tea tree oil are terpenes. Tea tree oil, like other essential oils, should never be swallowed. It is extremely concentrated, and even small amounts can be fatal if ingested. Only use tea tree oil topically.
Tea tree oil speeds the healing of minor cuts and scrapes. It is good for all kinds of infections, including athlete's foot and fungal infections of the toenails and fingernails that are resistant to antibiotics. There was a study done showing that a 5% solution of tea tree oil applied to acne was as effective as benzoyl peroxide, with fewer side effects. I tried tea tree oil a few years ago but it didn't work for me. I used pure tea tree oil (100%) and applied a single drop to each pimple. I had read this suggestion by an herbalist in a book about natural healing. 100% tea tree oil has a very strong, spicy smell, like nutmeg or eucalyptus. If you put it on your face, you'll have to stay at home until you wash your skin. Try putting it on before you go to bed. The oil didn't absorb well for me, and left my skin looking greasy. I then tried adding some drops of the oil to water to dilute it. I then rinsed my face with the water and let it dry. This didn't work for me either.
In viewing the posts of people on message boards over the fast few years, I've seen many different opinions of it. Some people have said it works well, while several others haven't had any luck with it. It might be worth experimenting with. You can find tea tree oil in health food stores, retail stores, and many drug stores. An average and reasonable price is about $10 per ounce (30 ml). The Wal-Mart in my town sells a brand for under $5 that is 2 ounces, and that's a great price. I've also read that essential oils should be diluted with a vegetable oil or carrier oil. Examples of carrier oils are sweet almond oil or grapeseed oil. These carrier oils and tea tree oil can be found at Puritan's Pride. This site usually has buy 1 get 1 or 2 free, or buy 2 get 3 free offers. Swanson Vitamins also sells tea tree oil.
Here is a sample report of the kind of info you will receive when subscribing to Healthy News.
Immediately take a deep breath and cough twice, as hard as you can. Wait a couple of seconds, take another deep breath, and again cough twice. This will contract your diaphragm, compressing the heart and causing it to pump. It's a simle form of self-CPR.
Keep repeating the process until your heart begins to beat normally (or until help arrives). Once your heart is stabilized, chew and swallow one asprin. Then take 2 cayenne pepper capsules or a tablespoon of Tabasco sauce. The asprin will thin your blood and prevent platelets from sticking...while the Tobasco or cayenne will dilate your blood vessels so that blood can flow freely.
This simple technique can dramatically increase your chances of survival. Please share it with your friends and loved ones. It can save their lives!
