So Tea Tree Oil seems to be a highly effective treatment against demodex mites. I have actually found it to kill the eggs as well! It kills demodex in all stages, entirely. In my particular case of demodex caused acne-like symptoms for years, after merely two weeks of treatment with tea-tree oil "soap-free soap" containing the helping ingredients coconut oil (to penetrate the hair follicles), honey (antibacterial), as well as Tea Tree Oil as main anti parasitic and antibacterial agent, all demodex symptoms disappeared. I was left with hyper pigmentation for about a month, but active demodex had vanished. After that a one time per week treatment using the soap, leaving it on the skin for 4 minutes while in the shower and gently rinsing it off, as well as using the soap as regular face wash now and then [applied for a few seconds then rinsed off], kept me clear for months now.

Tea Tree Oil in the right form of application (this is key, just a water solution doesn't help much, and by no means use pure TTO, it's highly irritating and dangerous), in MY EXPERIENCE, is the best remedy to kill demodex and keep them away. One has to get TTO into the pores, which is why in fusion with Coconut Oil it works so well. I am so glad I found this out.

Hope it helps somebody, maybe you reading this.

Warm regards

Tea tree oil faces ban over health fear

Scientists say even small amounts could provoke rashes and allergies

Tea tree oil, the increasingly popular remedy for everything from spots to insect bites and vapour rubs, is under threat of being banned by the European Union. The EU has said that even small amounts of the undiluted oil could be unsafe and unstable after clinical trials found users risked rashes and allergies.

Cosmetic products, such as shampoo and bath oils, that use the oil in concentrations of less than 1 per cent are safe. But the toiletries and cosmetics firms that produce the neat form of the natural remedy have been given until June to convince a panel of scientists that the oil is safe to sell to the public.

The warnings follow revelations that boys have been warned against using oils or hair gels that contain tea tree oil after three cases of them growing breasts were reported.

Researchers in the US believe that the oils may have hormone-like properties that lead to gynaecomastia - the growth of breasts. When the boys stopped using the oils, the breasts disappeared. Writing in New England Journal of Medicine, the researchers say that the repeated use of such oils may disrupt hormonal function.

It has also been revealed that tea tree oil in cosmetics and creams could increase the chances of catching 'superbug' infections in hospital. Exposure to low doses of the oil made pathogens such as MRSA, E.coli and salmonella more resistant to antibiotics.

'Because essential oils are natural products, the public often assumes they must be safe,' says Frances Fewell, director of the Institute for Complementary Medicine. 'You should never apply any sort of essential oil directly to the skin without diluting it first in a suitable carrier oil. Tea tree oil has become very popular, and many people have started applying it directly to deal with acne and skin infections. In fact this is a very aggressive oil. The skin can dry out, blister or form a rash.'

In a strongly worded report, the EU's Scientific Committee on Consumer Products has said it has serious concerns about the neat oil which, it found, is 'a severe irritant' to the skin and 'degraded rapidly' if exposed to air, light and heat.

The SCCP said existing safety tests were inadequate and that even widely sold toiletries were of 'questionable stability and were being sold without adequate proof of safety'.

'The sparse data available suggest undiluted oil as a commercial product is not safe,' the committee's report said. 'Our major concern is that toxic and risky chemicals become even more potent - up to three times as strong - if stored at room temperature, and exposed to light and air.'

'Whether or not the SCCP will be reassured by whatever the toiletries and cosmetics firms give them in June, I'm not sure,' said Christopher Flower, head of the British Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association. 'They may have a view on whether it is still appropriate for the public to use it neat at all. They may well decide that, regardless of the industry's presentations to them, the neat oil should not be used. Or they may simply say it should not be used frequently or over all of the body.'

Essential oils are concentrated oils extracted by passing steam through plants. The steam vaporises the volatile aromatic chemicals in the plant and these are then distilled.

Not all essential oils, however, have gone through this process. 'Essential oils are widely available under various forms of labelling and packaging, sometimes with insufficient regard for safety,' says Sylvia Baker of the Aromatherapy Trade Council.

'Many are of poor quality, and some are totally synthetic. There are companies that specialise in making nature-identical oils and then offering them as pure products. Others are bulked with cheaper oils and synthetics.'

The oil, which is derived from the Australian melaleuca tree and has been a traditional remedy among Australian Aboriginals for centuries, is famous for its antiseptic properties. Used by Australian troops for battlefield injuries in the First World War, it is now found in shower gels, toothpastes, mouthwash and face cleansers, to cure skin complaints, to treat cuts and burns, and as an insect and lice repellent.

After the birth of their son Alastair, rock star Rod Stewart and his girlfriend, Penny Lancaster, reportedly took home their baby's placenta, sprinkled it with tea tree oil and buried it in their garden.

Just thought I would help to answer some of these questions...

Tea tree oil has basically blown up the last few years as like this... ermm... "miracle oil". lol

I have personally tried tea tree oil (from many different brands), and tea tree oil products.
I unfortunately have not had any relief from symptoms using tea tree oil.

You can buy tea tree oil at your local health food store, or any health store. Try organic super markets, or some place such as "Vitamin Shoppe". I also have a place near me called "Country Nutrition" that sells it. :)

Undiluted tea tree oil is powerful, and I do not recommend putting this on the face. On the scalp should be okay. Some people prefer to put tea tree oil in their shampoo, or everytime they shampoo. You can dilute the tea tree oil with a carrier oil (olive oil, almond oil, grapeseed oil, castor oil, etc). Do not use tea tree oil, and another essential oil such as lavender oil. that's a no no. ^_^

Of course, i think tea tree oil is good to give a try because many people do get relief from it. The only thing that it has ever helped me was when I had a big pimple, it would decrease the size and heal it more quickly. Just dabbed it on with a q-tip.

But in a face wash ... it never did anything.. Never prevented anything from me.

I have more success with zzcream than tea tree oil.

Another thing I forgot to mention..

you can NOT dilute an oil with water.
It does not work this way because water and oil does not mix.
you must use another oil (carrier).

OMG what a bunch of crap! They so want to keep us sick. Banning tto that is terrible. Use it wisely, sparingly and it kills the mites like crazy. For sure it will burn your skin if you put on too hard a dose. Goodness, how stupid. Breasts haha

i'm looking for a good cleanser and was wondering what this cleanser is that has tea tree oil and coconut oil in it? I love coconut oil as a moisturizer and this sounds like it would help with my web term as anything I use to cleanse only smears the dead skin and flakes around

I just make my own. combine in a small shallow bowl or dish some pure coconut oil and a couple of drops of tea tree oil and Bobs your Uncle!! haha Slather it all over and get picking with the tweezers and a good magnifiying makeup mirror and light. I reaply sometimes if my skin has absorbed it all. Sometimes I put the thicker castor oil on to switch it up. I hope they stop coming out eventually. They must have to right? Its kind of gross but kind of exciting. It is like my skin is starting to breath again, getting all those foreign things out. I've had such strange things come out. Like white paint chips, black shiny shell like things, brown wood chip things, different coloured thread like things, egg sacks of stuff, and then like a thousand of those black mite things over the week I've been doing this.
