Tea Tree Oil is a strong anti-septic, which means it is a substance that stops the growth and actions of microorganisms especially on living tissue.  It has a positive affect against fungus, bacteria, viruses, and potentially cancer cells; not to mention, tea tree oil is equal or more effective than some pharmaceutical medications.  Terpinen-4-ol  is a major anti-microbial component of Tea Tree Oil and recent study published in the journal CANCER CHEMOTHERAPY AND PHARMACOLOGY demonstrates that

Tea Tree Oil (TTO) and terpinen-4-ol had significant anti-proliferative activity against two tumour cell lines. Moreover, the identification of primary necrotic cell death and cell cycle arrest of the aggressive tumour cells highlights the potential anticancer activity of Tea Tree Oil (TTO) and terpinen-4-ol.
