Tea Tree Oil

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and holiday season! I’m just now getting back into the groove after a fun and busy couple of weeks.  I had promised a while back some information on Tea Tree oil so here you go:

Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia)

Tea Tree has a strong, fresh, camphor-like aroma and is clear in color. The parts used for the oil are the leaves and twigs. This oil is extremely versatile due to its antibacterial, antiseptic, antifungal and antiviral properties. This is one of the few oils that can be used undiluted on the skin and is best used in a poultice or other skin cleansing recipes. It can also be diffused, used for massage, used in the bath or shower, inhaled,  used for skin and hair care, and used in household recipes.

This oil mixes well with Lemon, Pine Needle, Lavender Fine, Patchouli, Pink Grapefruit, Rosemary, Roman Chamomile, Thyme Linolol.

Uses:

  • fungal infections
  • canker sores
  • cold sores
  • acne
  • bruises
  • insect bites and stings
  • infections and lacerations
  • warts
  • burns
  • lice
  • eczema
  • periodontal disease
  • staff infection
  • heat rash
  • ring worm
  • yeast infections
  • stinky  and sweaty feet

*Easy Recipe – Add one drop Tea Tree oil to baking soda for an all-natural toothpaste that will help to heal bleeding gums.

This oil is a must to have in your herbal medicine chest! You won’t want to be without it when you discover it’s wonderful healing properties. 

The emotional effect of Tea Tree oil is cleansing and light.

Contraindications: dried mucous membranes, hypersensitivity to melaleuca oil, or prone to contact dermatitis. Preganant and lactating women. Do not use on babies or toddlers, as little as 5ml would be toxic to a child. Do NOT take internally.

Recover quicker from colds & flu.

Last Thursday my husband arrived home not feeling so spiffy. He knew he was coming down with something and immediately fell asleep on the couch.  The next day he woke up feeling miserable with a fever,  body aches, and congestion. I immediately went to my herbal stash and proceeded to offer up a whole host of natural goodies from mother nature. He’s used to me loading him up with herbs and he’s a willing participant because he knows that they help him to feel better much quicker than if he didn’t take them.

So the answer to the above question is Vitamin C Ascorbates, Liquid AL-J, Echinacea/Goldenseal, CC-A, Silver Shield, and Zinc Lozenges(behind the vitamin C). He took them faithfully and is continuing to take them. And guess what he went back to work today and is feeling good except for feeling a bit tired. Now I think that’s awesome. He started feeling much better on Sunday (the 3rd day) except he was very tired. Most people I talk to who have gotten sick (who don’t use natural remedies) usually stay sick for weeks on end.  It’s because they didn’t change the terrain of their bodies and they take medications that suppress the immune system and the functions of the body that are needed to get rid of whatever is causing the illness ( ie. bacteria, virus).

I just felt like I needed to share this story because it shows that if you give the body what it needs it will heal itself quicker than if you suppress the symptoms!

Holiday Gifts

Well we are right in the middle of the holiday season so giving is on everyone’s mind. My mantra for this time of year is “simplify”. Giving a small gift that is meaningful makes me and the receiver just as happy as if I went out to a department store and picked out something fancy and expensive that would break the bank. Don’t get me wrong those gifts have their place! But at this time of hustle and bustle I stick to the simple things in life. For example my friends and family will be receiving these delicious candles from Country Candlelight. These candles are natural, eco-friendly soy candles that are clean burning so no nasty chemicals will be adhering to your drapes or your lungs! Try the Banana Nut Bread, it smells amazing!

Also I will be baking some yummy loaves of Cranberry Nut bread (I use Xylitol instead of sugar to make this bread healthier)and wrapping it up with some organic tea bags. Perfect.

Other gift ideas are the Lemon or Peppermint mints and Cinnamon or Spearmint gum from Nature’s Sunshine. What about some essential oils like Lavender oil for relaxation or Peppermint oil for it’s uplifting properties and then add this diffuser or this aromaball diffuser or massage oil? Another great idea is to buy an aromatherapy kit that has all the ingredients needed to start using aromatherapy for health. There’s the Aromatherapy Product Pack that has everything you need for pampering and home cleaning recipes, the Citrus Fresh Diffuser Kit that has 3 citrus oils and a diffuser, and the Health, Home and Beauty Kit that contains 10 essential oils to get you started and at a great price. Simple yet interesting gifts make giving extra special. And I bet the recipient will be so thankful.
