Ways to Use Tea Tree Oil (AKA Melaluca Oil)

Melaleuca (Tea Tree Oil) is anti-bacterial, anti-septic, and anti-fungal. The tea trees originated from Australia and the oil has long been known as a “cure-all”. In fact, the Australian soldiers of WWII were issued tea tree oil in their first aid kits.

 As with any essential oil, melaleuca should be diluted with a carrier oil to prevent desensitizing. Adults can typically use 2-4 drops (mixed with carrier oil).

You can also diffuse the oil into the air with a diffuser. Check out these here: (insert Lisa’s link)
