When geese hang out at a beach their feces become a breading ground for chiggers. When someone goes swimming in chigger infested water, they end up with really itchy welts all over their body, especially in areas where their swim suit was on their body. Last summer we tried everything to stop the itching - Cortisone, Antihistamines, Calamine, Nail Polish and Tea Tree Oil. I'm not one of those people that really believes essential oil has healing powers, so I was surprised when my sons quit using everything except the tea tree oil. In this case, they made me a believer of the healing power of tea tree oil.
Tea Tree oil is believed to help with acne and toenail fungus. It is also know to work as a topical antiseptic. The science doesn't completely support all of the claims of tea tree oil; however it doesn't prove it wrong either. Even if it doesn't really cure my athlete's foot, I love my tea tree mint soap. I also love the fact that I'm bathing with something that smells good and might help with my feet, and my feet need lots of help.
If you are open to trying a great smelling soap that might make your feet prettier try some of the Sasi Tea Tree Mint soap, and let me know if it helps your feet.
