What is Tea Tree Oil?

  • Tea TreeLatin Name: Melaleuca alternifolia
  • Other Names: Melaleuca oil, Australian tea tree oil
  • Tea tree has a long history of traditional use. Australian aboriginals used tea tree leaves for healing skin cuts, burns, and infections by crushing the leaves and applying them to the affected area.
  • Tea tree oil contains constituents called terpenoids, which have been found to have antiseptic and antifungal activity. The compound terpinen-4-ol is the most abundant and is thought to be responsible for most of tea tree oil's antimicrobial activity

Use of Tea Tree Oil in Trichomonal Vaginitis

  • Tea TreeIn June 1962 an American report was published in obstetrics and Gynecology on the use of tea-tree oil in trichomonal vaginitis.
  • The study comprised 130 women, including ninety-six cases of trichomonal vaginitis, and also several cases of thrush and cervicitis. As controls the author treated fifty other cases with standard antitrichomonal suppositories.
  • The teatree oil was applied diluted by means of saturated tampons and douches, but was not given orally.
  • Out of the 130 patients, all were successfully treated, and results were similar to the control group.
  • Many patients commented on the pleasant odour of the oil, its cooling soothing effect and its efficiency in removing obnoxious vaginal odours.

Tea Tree Oil & Candida Albicans

  • Candida albicans is normally present in the vagina, but its growth is kept in check by certain baceria. A common cause of thrush is antibiotic therapy which results in the beneficial bacteria being destroyed, thus allowing Candida to flourish.
  • For this study tea-tree oil was made into pessaries for insertion into the vagina once every night.
  • After the first week one patient felt vaginal burning, so discontinued treatment, but none of the others had any similar symptoms. After thirty days the twenty-seven patients were examined, and twenty-three showed a complete cure with no further discharge or burning. The other four showed a moderate improvement.
