Perhaps turmeric if: Topical tea tree oil can not possibly cause bleeding but turmeric is a natural blood thinner. However, even large doses of turmeric are not known to cause bleeding unless combined with other medicines or herbs that thin the blood or unless one has a hereditary tendency towards increased bleeding.
