Recipes - Tea Tree & Nail Fungus

Tea Tree Essential Oil is reknowned for its strong anti fungal actions. It is also one of the 2 essential oils that can be used neat. Tea Tree has very good results fighting nail fungus.


  1. Paint the affected nails with a Q tip dipped in Tea Tree as if applying nail varnish. Leave to dry for a couple of minutes.
  2. Apply twice a day for 5 days.
  3. Have 2 days off and repeat for 4 to 5 weeks.

The oil won't get rid of the signs of infection on the damaged nails but will prevent the fungus from spreading on the new growth. Once the nail has started to grow clear (4 to 5 weeks), stop the treatment.

Do not apply on the skin surrounding the nail. Stop if stinging or redness appears on the skin.
