Many antiseptics are harsh on delicate tissue or are hampered by the presence of pus and other organic matter. Tea tree oil is very effective in the presence of pus and it does not harm healthy tissue. Instead, it promotes the growth and repair of healthy tissue, which lessens the chance of scarring.
According to researchers at the Department of Research, Lombard, USA, the oil works by activating white blood cells, the body’s first line of defense.
