Tea tree oil (also known as Australian tea tree oil) is made using a distillation process with the leaves of the maleleuca tree. The oil is a common skin remedy useful for all types of skin irritations and blemishes. It is thought to have antibacterial properties and can help in dealing with infections. Although tea tree oil should not be taken internally, external application can help with things such as fungal infections like athlete's foot, as well as with acne. Likewise, it can help with common moles that appear on the skin. While it is not proven to completely remove moles, tea tree oil can reduce the appearance of moles on your skin.
