45 Uses for Tea Tree Oil - A Must-Have for your medicine cabinet!

Also known as melaleuca oil, tea tree oil is the oil extracted from the Melaleuca tree.  It has a similar smell to Eucalyptus oil.   Hands down, this shit works better than any prescription medication or other over the counter junk you can buy.  My daughter was 4 years old when she had what appeared to be a pimple on her cheek.  I gently popped it, cleaned it and she went to bed.  The next day it was a cluster.  Holy crap.  I had popped a wart and now it had spread.  Determined not to use chemicals, I tried a week of blotting it with cotton balls drenched in warm salt water.  I tried a week of apple cider vinegar.  I tried about a dozen other remedies and my efforts were going nowhere fast.  Then, I tried tea tree oil.  I broke the head of it a little bit and applied tea tree oil, hoping for the best.  This was my first real experience with this miraculous stuff.  The next day it was bigger.  I freaked out, but applied more.  Every morning and night I would apply it with a cotton swab.  If it looked like it had a head, I would pop the tip of it to allow the tea tree oil to really go to work.  It got bigger for about 2 days, then it started shrinking.  Quickly.  In less then a week it was gone.  Completely.

On another occasion  my mom had basal cell carcinoma.  AKA: skin cancer.  She had a few spots removed and months later another spot appeared.  I told her about tea tree oil.  She used it daily and by the time she got to the doctor it had shrunk to almost nothing.  It was removed and the biopsy showed that is was also cancer.  Since basal cell carcinoma stays skin deep and doesn't spread within, is it possible she could have gotten rid of it altogether?  We will never know.  

Exhibit Three: A pedicure about a year ago left me with a gross toenail fungus.  Fricking gross.  I had never had a fungus of the nail before and I was horrified and repulsed.  It was so bad that the nail had thickened and was pulling away from the skin.  Finally, I started putting tea tree oil on it.  Straight from the bottle, Id put a few drops into the 'space' between my gross ass toenail and my toe, hoping it would really get in there and take care of it.  It did.  After weeks of dealing with a nasty ass fungus, it only took 3 days for my toenail to completely and painlessly fall off and a new un-fungi-fied nail to grow in its place.  Hallelujah!  

If this hasn't convinced you, try it yourself.  It is beyond amazing.  It is antiseptic, anti-fungal, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory  antiviral and antibacterial.  In one word, it is:  Amazing.

  1. Be cautious not to use any "essential oils" they need to be 100% organic and certified pure. Many of the ones you purchase at health food stores are not pure they contain a high level of grain alochol and the usage suggestions specifically say "not to be taken internally" If you have a pure oil that is 100% organic and certified pure they are fine to be used internally, aromatically, and topically. DoTerra Oils are 100% pure and grown in their indigenous areas. Diana
