Tea Tree leaves are a bit of a miracle worker
During world war II tea tree oil was considered such a necessity for Naval and Army first aid kits that the producers of it were exempt from service until sufficient reserves of it were stored. It is a very strong antiseptic barbicide and fungicide. It was rediscovered and studied in the 1960’s and is proven to help with many ailments.
