SUMMARY:
Tea tree oil is an Aboriginal Australian traditional medicine used for bruises, insect bites, and skin infections. Previous studies demonstrated tea tree oil's antiseptic qualities. The purpose of this study was to observe its effects on white blood cells. The results of the study concluded that the antiseptic benefit of tea tree oil is due in part to the activation of white blood cells.
