Over the course of time, man has made significant advances in the practice of medicine and healing through the constant trial and error of utilizing different techniques, natural products or approaches that have either worked better than others or not worked – medicine is basically a process of elimination as far as I can tell. None have proved to be as effective a tool in terms of healing topical skin related disorders as well as internal bacterial infections as Tea Tree Oil. The healing properties of this oil have been known to us for well over a century and was discovered in the late 19th century by an Australian chemist when he came across a lumberjack who had nearly severed his finger off in a log cutting accident (chopping logs is dangerous work). He was amazed by by the stunning results that Tea Tree sap had shown in terms of keeping the wound free of bacteria and infection as well as speeding up the healing process.

This lead him to begin experiments with distilling the oil from the bark, leaves and twigs of the Melaleuca tree as a means of creating a medicinal treatment out of them which could be used for general application to help heal wounds and skin related issues. He patented the first form of raw Tea Tree essential oil and made a huge leap in terms of understanding the immense healing properties and capabilities that this natural product had and decided to make his discovery known to the world. This lead to the growth of an entire industry in later years, which he did not see happen, but is something that is still growing and evolving today as the desire for alternative forms of medicine becomes more of a need in general society. The problem with conventional forms of medicine is that while they may be highly effective in treating the symptoms of any given disease or topical skin related issue, they are often loaded with chemically synthesized ingredients that come with a wide variety of side effects which can ultimately lead to a worsening of your health in general and cause more problems than they solve.
On top of this, most of the products we use on a regular basis contain chemically enhanced forms of natural products (the same applies to medication) and this ultimately diminishes the efficacy and usefulness of the of the natural product, as they are most effective in their natural form. The closer you get a natural product to their raw form, the better they are and this applies to nearly every consumable product that you buy. Nowhere is this more important than in the hair care and beauty sector, as many of the products in this industry contain a wide variety of unhealthy chemical additives that are included to make the product cheaper to manufacture and more efficient, but come with the downside of side effects. Personally, I try to use as many natural products as possible and herbal shampoos containing nothing but raw natural products, such as Tea Tree oil are always the best choice you can make for building strong, lasting hair and leading a healthier life in general.
