Tea Tree + Psoriasis

Tea tree oil comes from the leaves of a native Australian plant. Originally, the leaves were used as a substitute for tea, and that's how the tree got its name. The aborigines saw the benefits of tea tree leaves and used them for a number of skin irritations. They would crush the leaves and put them directly on the infected area and found it quite effective due to it's antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. The oil from the leaves contains terpenoids, which gives it the antiseptic and anti-fungal characteristics.  Psoriasis patients have found some relief with tea tree oil in its pure form, not as an ingredient in another product.

Nowadays, tea tree oil is found in a variety of products form creams and lotions to shampoos and soaps. It is also available in its pure form - as an essential oil. Though products containing tea tree oil claim to aid in healing psoriasis, the best results, for some individuals, come from the pure essential oil itself, that is massaged into the skin.
