Tea Tree Oil, Home Remedy for BoilsMonday, October 03, 2016
Hey mommies! I have a recent discovery. Just in case you haven't read or tried it, tea tree oil can help cure boils.
I was about to bring Yohan to the doctor because a red, sore spot developed near his right elbow. I suspected it to be a boil. A boil is a skin infection that starts in a hair follicle or oil gland. We are scheduled to go the doctor last Saturday. I researched about natural remedies for it first before finalizing our trip to the clinic. I learned that tea tree oil is one of the suggested remedies. It is known to be an effective anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-septic oil used by people centuries ago.
Luckily, I have Human Nature Tea Tree Oil which I used as an ingredient for my All-Purpose Cleaner/Deodorizer.
I can say that tea tree oil is very effective. Yohan's skin infection is healed after two days of regular application of tea tree oil. I am amazed of the fast healing process. Here are the few steps I followed:
- Dab a cotton swab into the tea tree oil.
- Gently apply the oil onto the boil with the swab.
- Dispose of the used swab and be careful that it does not make contact with uninfected parts of the skin to prevent further infections.
- Repeat several times a day.
