Tea tree is antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiseptic. There is clinical evidence that topical dermatological preparations containing tea tree oil may be more effective than conventional antibiotics in preventing transmission of CA~MRSA. Mites such as lice and scabies can't stand tea tree and the effectiveness of topical tea tree oil preparations for the treatment of the yeast infection Candidiasis is supported by its ability to kill Candida in vitro.
Tea tree oil is used in partnership with beeswax which has additional anti~bacterial properties and forms a protective barrier on the skin.
This salve is suitable for both people and pets ~ but it is advisable to perform a patch test first (wait 24 hours for reaction)
