Some of the many benefits that make tea tree oil a AAA rating;
Antibacterial Tea tree oil’s antibacterial qualities can help disinfect skin surfaces and help prevent infection. The evolution of antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria has caused problems, especially in healthcare settings. According to the American Cancer Society tea tree oil may help kill bacteria on the skin that are resistant to antibiotics such as methicillin and vancomycin. Washing with Natural Way Organics tea tree soaps helps reduce acne-causing bacteria on your face and other areas it has demonstrated results comparable to benzoyl peroxides in fighting acne, with fewer side effects.
Antifungal Tea tree oil soap may help treat fungal skin infections, though the evidence to support this use is conflicting.

According to “Clinical Microbiology Reviews,” tea tree oil has been used to kill viral infections in plants, and laboratory studies have shown that it can inhibit the activity of the herpes simplex virus.
