Does Tea Tree Oil for Work Acne Scarring?

Does tea tree oil for acne scars work? You may have heard of the so called 'incredible' benefits of tea tree oil in regards to well, everything, but especially acne scarring. It's kind of a funny idea to me that tea tree oil has been raised by so many to 'miracle' status. I grew up in Australasia where the oil is very available and very easy to find. To think that the rest of the world isn't as familiar with it is a strange thought... but stopping that train of wonderings let's get back to tea tree oil and acne scarring.

I'll tell you what tea tree oil - it's an incredible anti-septic. It's one of the best natural anti-septics that I know of. As a treatment for cuts and injuries it is unbeatable in the natural department and having grown up with tea tree oil around the house I shudder at the artificial anti-septics that some use. It works extraordinarily well for the things that it does.

However, you don't need to remove any bacteria from acne scarring. Tea tree oil doesn't really do a hang of a lot of other things so it's pretty useless when it comes to acne scarring. While some people *might* see some benefits from it, chances are that they come from something else, rather then the tea tree essential oil.

I do recommend that you buy some however for your general supplies. If you ever get acne again in the future (and chances are that you will in some form) then you will find that tea tree oil is an excellent way to clear it very quickly before it becomes a scarring problem. Applying some would often lead to the pimple halving in size by the next day - it's that good. Kind of freaky actually.

As I mentioned earlier it also makes an excellent natural anti-septic. Cuts and injuries can be treated with the tea tree oil for fabulous results. (isn't 'fabulous' a fabulous word?) I like to use it for tongue pimples. Creepy, but it works!

So, tea tree oil for acne scars isn't something that you really want to waste your time with. There are more treatments out there that you can try that are more effective. But the oil is still very valuable - while I'm not sure it deserves 'miracle' status, it is certainly something that will always be in my bathroom cupboards - just in case.
