There are a number of essential oils that combat bacteria and viruses but not many oils are also effective anti-fungals. Tea tree oil helps to control fungal infections by reducing the rate at which the fungus reproduces. It is often used as an alternative medical remedy to treat fungal infections like athlete’s foot.

With plants being living organisms, it makes sense that tea tree oil can treat their fungal infections too. By just diluting 4 or 5 drops in a spray bottle of water you can treat plant fungus and mold. If you need a larger amount, you can use the kind of sprayer you put on a garden hose and add 15 drops of tea tree oil. Be sure to have the water coming out at a slow rate. This treatment will also rid plants of a variety of insects which makes tea tree oil an excellent ally for your garden.
