hi I’m dr. Lin I’m a naturopathic doctor and I’m here today to talk about alternative medicine as a naturopath I have two primary points of view when it comes to health prevention / cure always try to live a healthy lifestyle and second balance when the body and the mind are in balance we have perfect health today’s topic is the benefits and dangers of tea tree oil tea tree oil is an essential oil and it’s probably the most widely researched and used oil in the world the reason I like tea tree oil is because it is an anti septic and it’s Aalto and also an anti fungal oil now the benefits of tea tree oil is tea tree oil like all essential oils is living it’s organic it’s made up of the same molecules as you and me so when we apply natural living organisms to our body it does much more effective for healing it and also preventing any scarring now the dangers with tea tree oil is it’s like any essential oil it’s very highly concentrated and because it’s so highly concentrated directly on the skin it can have the counter effect and actually create burning and a bit of a rash so you want to make sure when you use tea tree oil that you mix it with what we call a carrier oil that would be any kind of a vegetable oil I like grapeseed oil because it tends to be very light and mixes very well with the essential oil and is a great carrier so take about two tablespoons of grapeseed oil or any vegetable oil add about four drops of you of the tea tree oil mix it together and just rub it over the area that is that you need to heal keep it dry and do that a couple times a day and you probably will find that it’s very effective in healing your body I hope that was a great tip and I hope you guys have a great day and I will see you soon bye
