Tea tree oil is taken from the leaves of the Melaleuca tree which is native to Australia. There are many uses for this wonderful oil, however, it can be toxic if taken by mouth & should not be used full strength on the skin. This oil has a strong, long lasting & camphorous aroma that reminds me of eucalyptus which I love. To help me relax, I combined a few drops with a carrier oil & placed it on my desk for aromatherapy. When my arthritis pain began to act up, I simply rubbed the mixture on my arm & the pain vanished almost immediately. It came in quite handy after my brother's dog bit me as a pain reliever & an anti-microbial.
To help alleviate my flea problem, I sprinkled a few drops of oil on my broom & swept the carpet. This also works as a great deodorizer to aid in getting rid of pet odor. There are so many other uses for tea tree oil including getting rid of acne, cold sores, yeast infections, psoriasis, warts & more. It fights ringworm, removes dandruff, & can be used to make shampoo, lotion, soap, & body wash.
