Below you will find some of the uses of Tea Tree Oil. I love it right now.
TEA TREE OIL (Melaleuca Alternifolia)
NATURE’S FIRST AID KIT IN A BOTTLE
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.
