I'm On A Tea Tree Oil Kick

Below you will find some of the uses of Tea Tree Oil. I love it right now.

TEA TREE OIL (Melaleuca Alternifolia)


Tea Tree Oil is a powerful organic solvent that will dissolve pus in pimples and will neutralize the venom of minor insect bites. Tea Tree Oil is an effective Anti-Bacteria. Tea Tree Oil is safe for healthy tissue and does not inhibit normal cell growth. Tea Tree Oil is a mild local anaesthetic. Tea Tree Oil makes water more penetrating and thereby a better cleaner. Great for stubborn stains on clothes.

Have a good natural moisturizing cream available in the house as well as a good carrier oil such as grape seed oil, aloe, Almond etc. so that you can better use your Tea Tree oil.

HEAD LICE / NITS: Apply ten drops of pure Tea Tree Oil along with your shampoo and leave on ten minutes. Rinse. Repeat in one week. Keep out of eyes.

SINUS CONGESTION: Use Pure Tea Tree Oil in a steam vaporizer and inhale. Rub drops around sinuses, chest and back.

COLD SORES: Mix 5 drops pure Tea Tree oil into your favourite natural lip cream and apply three times per day.

ARTHRITIS: Mix three to five drops of pure Tea Tree Oil into a small amount of carrier oil or cream, and massage deeply into joints.

ACNE / PIMPLES: Add three to six drops of Pure Tea Tree Oil to warm water and rinse affected area daily. Cover treated area with your general purpose Tea Tree Cream.

SORE THROAT: Add three to six drops of pure oil to warm water and gargle, or add three drops of pure oil to juice and sip slowly.

ITCHY SCALP: Add five drops of pure oil to shampoo. Keep out of eyes.

MOUTH ULCERS, SORE GUMS, BAD BREATH, PLAQUE: Dab on pure Tea Tree oil or add three drops to water and use as a mouthwash twice daily


Flush with cold water/ice pack immediately. Apply pure oil to burn.

SUNBURN: In severe cases apply pure oil. For minor cases dilute oil with cream or carrier oil.

DIAPER WASH: Add ten drops of pure Tea Tree Oil to each 4 liters of water. Stir, then soak diapers overnight.

FLEAS: Add ten drops pure oil to shampoo. Repeat as required.

BOILS: Apply pure Tea Tree oil directly three times per day.

CUTS AND SCRAPES: Dab on pure Tea Tree

Last winter when my hair was dry and no conditioner helped, I ordered Tea Tree Shampoo on line. That stuff is great!

I love Tea Tree oil! I used it when Olivia contracted head lice at school last year - did the trick!

I also had some kind of eczema on my finger under my wedding rings. Nothing cleared it up - until I applied my trusty Melaleuca Tea Tree Oil!

Olivia has a sore in her mouth where she recently bit her cheek --don't know why I didn't think to use the Tea Tree Oil...going to get it now!
