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.
