Beautiful skin: best natural remedy for pimples, bites and skin infections

Tea tree oil has been used in Australia for many years to treat a variety of skin problems. The aborigines were the first ones to discover the healing properties of tea tree oil thousands of years ago. They treated cuts, burns and infections by crushing the leaves of the tree and applying them to injuries. The oil's natural components have been found to have antiseptic and antifungal activity and people not only use it to treat: acne, athlete's foot, dandruff, periodontal disease, eczema, yeast infection or lice but also as a household cleaners, great alternative to products that contain cancer-causing chemicals. 

Tea tree oil is for external use only, toxic when swallowed, and not recommended for children and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
