Every Medicine Cabinet Should Contain a
Bottle of Pure Tea Tree Essential Oil
Tea Tree oil is steam distilled out of the leaves of the Melaleuca
alternifolia tree in
Tea Tree can be referred to as
the #1 First Aid Oil of Aromatherapy. It is highly antiseptic,
antiviral, and anti-fungal. For cuts, bites, and stings, simply use one
drop as often as necessary to relieve pain and clear up infection. It is a
wonderful treatment for red ant and mosquito bites. Tea Tree is excellent
for most all infections, as it can stop the bad bacteria from spreading,
and allows the good bacteria to take over. A drop of Tea Tree can also be
quite effective on cold sores, acne, poison oak and poison ivy.
For sore throats and mouthwash
add 2 drops of Tea Tree to about 1/4 cup water (a little honey and/or lemon
is optional) and gargle well. In case of athlete's foot or nail bed
fungus, use one drop straight on the pertinent area. Soaking feet or hands
in water with a few drops of Tea Tree is also quite helpful.
Work out of the palm of your
hand to make a chest rub blend in the case of our common cold. Pour a
base oil in your palm, add 1 or 2 drops of Tea Tree, rub your hands
together and apply the blend to your nose, around ears, on neck and chest.
Breathe deeply and rest quietly. For healthy scalps and hair, add 1 drop
to the shampoo in your palm. This is great for pets too!
Tea Tree essential oil is
another precious liquid that is one of nature's gifts to mankind. It
supports us along our way in handling all kinds of infections.
Tea Tree deserves a spot up front
in our medicine cabinet.
