Tea tree oil or TTO is perhaps one of the most popularly used and studied natural/ essential oils on the planet right now. It is used to treat both eye problems and skin problems. Tea tree oil is derived from the woody, shrub-like tree which grows in Australia. The scientific name for the tree is ‘Melaleuca Alternifolia’. It belongs to the family of Eucalyptus, which is also used for antiseptic properties. Tea tree oil contains almost 100 different components. It is probably the reason for its widespread use for skin and eyes.
Daily application of tea tree oil-based Eyelid Wipes, Eyelid Cleanser, & Eyelid Gels can keep your eyes healthy and protect them from conditions like Blepharitis, Dry Eye, and Demodex infestation.
1. Reasons to use Tea Tree Oil products for ocular health
Eye Care professionals prescribe tea tree oil-based Wipes, Cleansers, and Gels as they have been found to kill bacteria and eyelash mites (called as Demodex) naturally. This natural healing or killing power has made them extremely popular, as they can be used for a long time to clean/heal the eyes, without any ill-effects.
Demodex (eyelash mites) and bacteria which reside on the eyelids can lead to eyelid infection, inflammation, and dry eye. If you know someone who suffers from styes, eye inflammation, and rosacea, etc. quite frequently, then Demodex or bacteria may be the culprit. Using tea tree oil formulation around eyes can help to resolve these eye problems in a safe and healthy manner.
However, you should never apply the tea tree essential oil directly in your eyes – it might harm your eyes, and you will end up with severe burning sensation and red eyes. Instead, Tea Tree Oil Eyelid Wipes, Tea Tree Eyelid Cleansers, and Gels should be used.
2. Medicinal properties of tea tree oil
TTO is anti-inflammatory, anti-protozoal, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal. It is antioxidant, anti-viral, and anti-tumour as well. This amazing natural healer can cure a host of eye problems. Tea tree oil or TTO is anti-bacterial in nature which is why is it is the best treatment for styes. Gently cleaning the eyes two times a day with gentle tea tree oil formulations such as Oculeaf Eyelid Wipes can help to heal styes.
