Tea Tree Oil

Recommended Posts

I was going to wait longer to post this up, but I am super excited with the results!

My friend pulled out a book called "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" by Balch & Balch, and read some recommendations for treatment of Herpes. One of the recommendations was Tea Tree Oil, a natural antiseptic, and to lightly dab on the blisters several times a day.

The first time I tried this, I only did it once (yesterday evening). I did a test on another part of my skin to see if this irritated me (test being mixing a small sample with another oil, i used olive), and it didn't. So I thought to do it full strength-- it BURNED more than i expected! After an hour of waddling on the bed, I felt much cleaner, and at ease. It really helped with the iritation, but not so much the itching.

This morning, I go to check it again and I see a HUGE difference on my largest blister. That blister was completely open and about my pinky length. Today, about half of it was closed. and I was able to walk around more comfortably, and I'm tolerating my cotton underwear. However this time, I diluted the solution with water (as the book recommended), but I still feel that nice cool, tingling sensation but without that gosh darn burning feeling.
