Get Rid of Nail Fungus with Tea Tree Oil & Nail Fungus Symptoms
Do you need to get rid of nail fungus? Tea tree oil is antifungal and antibacterial so, it is the perfect solution for nail fungus.
Thursday Plantation is a line of tea tree oil products form Nature’s Plus that has a product just for nail fungus. Its solution penetrates deep into the nail. It has an applicator brush and is very easy to apply on the nail as well as around the bed of the nail. However, using a cotton swab soaked with tea tree oil can be just as effective.
How do you know if you have nail fungus?
Nail fungus buries itself deep into your nail making it look thick, crumbly and yellow. It can also be very painful, according to many of my customers.
Tea tree oil is also called melaleuca oil since it is made from melaleuca trees that grow in Australia. So, if a store does not have tea tree oil you might have to ask for melaleuca oil.
A customer came in and said that Dr. Oz had recommended Lavender Oil for nail fungus, but, I question whether she got that right. Lavender oil is for relieving stress when used in aroma therapy. As for your skin, I’ve heard of people rubbing lavender on a burn or using it for psoriasis; a kind of calming affect for the skin. I don’t recommend it as an antifungal. I’d leave that up to tea tree oil.
Tea Tree Oil – anti fungal and anti bacterial. Good for cuts, scrapes, insect bites, acne, scalp problems including head lice and dandruff.
Tea tree oil should never be ingested although you can gargle with it to freshen your breath or to sooth a sore throat.
The length of time tea tree oil takes to heal the nail depends on how severe your nail fungus is.
