Tea Tree Oil or Melaleuca Oil
Merry Meet :)))) I have been in love with Tea Tree Oil for years now. I stumbled upon it many years ago quite accidentally when I was looking for a way to make money from home. I wound up working for a company called Melaleuca. Melaleuca is another name for tea tree oil. This essential oil is taken from the leaves of Melaleuca Alternifolia which is a tree or shrub native to Southeast Queensland and the Northeast coast of New South Wales, Australia.
For me this is the miracle essential oil. When I started working for Melaleuca I switched all my products in my home over to their products. All of their products are all natural and have tea tree oil in them. From everything to dish detergent, household cleaners, shampoo, soaps, hand creams, etc. You name it, they had it in it. At the time I had extremely sensitive skin. I had eczema pretty severe on my hands, and a rash from candida over most of my body. Within a month they were gone. I wound up leaving the company as they had monthly "buying quotas" that were a bit steep for my income but if it were not for that I would be highly dedicated to selling their products as I believe in them wholeheartedly.
Fast forward several years later and the community has realized how valuable this oil is. Today you can find it on the market in almost every product if you know where to look. I have recently gone back to slowly converting my products over. One of the first products I bought was from Dr. Bronner's. It's a pure castille soap with tea tree oil added to it. You can get 32 ounces for just $16.08 on Amazon. I love Amazon. :))) You can find it here if you are interested: Dr Bronner's Tea Tree Castille Soap. This product is amazing. I can tell you I have been issues with soap residue on my tub and I used this and it was clean in under 15 minutes. Oh how I have missed my tea tree cleaners. It's a bit watery but it works wonderful. You can use this same soap as a shampoo, body wash, and general cleaner for your home. Now you can find other products with tea tree oil in it too that are specific to your needs. The Body shop puts out an absolutely amazing line of tea tree facial products that I am currently using with amazing results. You can find those on Amazon as well.
I also highly recommend having it on hand for first aid needs. You can get creams that are perfect for this use. It's really just a matter of hitting up Amazon and google and looking for different places to incorporate tea tree oil into your life. They have it in toothpaste as well which will not only help whiten your teeth but help with bacteria in the mouth as well.
It is rare for someone to be allergic to this oil, but as always use it in a small quantity first to test how it reacts with your body. :)) While it has a wide variety of uses, tea tree oil should never be ingested.
The following is a partial list of it's many uses: (list from http://www.bellaonline.com/)
