Tea Tree Oil Should Be In Everyone's Medicine Cabinet

Tea Tree Essential Oil is the best thing since toast. It is good for everything and 1 drop goes far. It is antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antiseptic. Tea tree oil has 101 uses or more.

It can be dispersed in water and used as a scalp/hair rinse, a douche, a mouthwash. It can be blended in olive oil (or other carrier oil) and used for skin problems. Even used directly from the bottle onto a cotton-swab or cotton-ball to apply to cuts, scrapes, even pimples.

I put 15-20 drops in a 16 ounce bottle of witch hazel and add a few drops of orange essential oil (or some other flavor). Shake it up and dab onto a cotton-ball. What a refreshing facial astringent. Especially in the summer, it keeps my skin clear, fresh and clean.

Yes, oil of oregano is up there with tea tree as multi-use and first aid kit worthy. The scent does get to me in an unpleasant way, so I prefer tea tree.

Just curious, Have you looked into Oil of Oregano yet? Also Amazing.

you're so right.Tea tree is miraculous,a medicine cabinet in a vial.I use it for all sorts of things.Melaluca Alterfolia-one of the only latin botanical names I can spout off the top o' my head.It belongs in everyones Materia Medica,fo'shizzle!

Ahhhh, lavender. Good for the skin, helps sleep, calming ahhhh. :)

I can attest to the antifungal properties, it cleared up my athlete's foot when I had it a few years ago. This is my favorite EE, right before lavender.

Yaay! I hope you can find it. Walgreens even carries it. Look for the label to say only pure tea tree essential oil. No other ingredients. Love it.

What wonderful tips. I have to find some from somewhere and give it a try!<br />
Thanks!<br />
