Tea tree oil does have a potent smell to it. I think its pleasant but my oldest daughter who has no allergies gets severe headaches from this stuff.
I bought it to put in her hair to keep headlice away.
It's supposed to be awesome for fungus issues.

I have given up on using the nail varnish from the pharmacy and am just regularly using coconut oil. It seems to be going!!!

I used tea tree oil for 6 months straight, directly on my toenails and my toenails are clear. It's the only thing that worked for me. But I think you need to use it for a year. I've got some marks appearing, not sure if they are fungal return or what, but it's been amazingly nice to wear sandals!

Default Carbs and Fungus are connected!!

Has anyone had their nail fungus disappear after going low carb? (Keeping my fingers -- and toes -- crossed! )

I have nail fungus for 8! I tried topical and the pill. Never really worked for long. The pill messed up my eyesight too. Be careful!!
Anyway, I finally noticed that when I stop eating bread, the fungus stops lifting my nails. It's unbelievable!! I hope this helps someone! All the best. God Bless!
