Tea Tree oil:
The leaf of the tea tree (melaleuca alternifolia) contains oil that is a strong antimicrobial agent against the strains of oral bacteria, as shown by the 1987 study "The Antimicrobial Effects of an Essential Oil on Selected Oral Pathogens." A separate study in 2004 also showed that it inhibits the adhesion-ability of the common oral bacterium, bacteria P. ginigvalis. It's this adhesion-ability that the bacteria use to anchor themselves while forming a biofilm. Besides affecting microbes on the surface, tea tree can penetrate below the surface where it can be anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain relieving), and antimicrobial.
