    • It’s good for a lot of things....

      Apply to a pimple
      Helps with toe fungus if not bad
      Great for the scalp

    • Can be used for the treatment of lice and to ward them off as well...I usually by the shampoo which can be a little expensive or add the oil to the shampoo...either way works...natural with no chemicals.

    • It is also an EXCELLENT mold killer.  I use it every six months on my old aluminum frame windows.  Before I started using it the black mold used to encase the windows every month.  

      Now I wipe them down every 6 months and it never grows more than a very small amount.....I live in RAINY Washington State so this is a big issue.

      I also used it to deodorize my son’s diaper pail.  I used cloth diapers. I saturated a piece of cloth and hung it at the back of the pail.  Never any nasty smells.

    • I love Tea Tree oil.  It has so many properties.
      “It’s a safe, non-toxic, non-irritating oil that works with the body when used topically, not against it.  It’s completely natural.  It’s also a clinically proven anti-bacterial and anti-fungal substance.  Properties include healing wounds,  an anti-inflammatory, immune system strengthening, and pain killing.  It also has characteristics for anti-viral and expectorant.  Ironically it can be used as a powerful antiseptic, parasiticide and insecticide.” Karen MacKenzie.

      The history of the oil is really interesting.  There are over 150 species of Melaleuca trees botanically known as Melaleuca alternifolia.  Therefore, there are many oils that can be called “Tea Tree oil” or Melaleuca oil.  To make sure you have authentic Australian Tea Tree oil it must state on the label that it is the oil of the Melaleuca alternifolia.  

      You already received a lot of helpful information from others here.  I hope this was helpful too.  If you need more info I have a ton.

    • It has antiseptic properties. I used to have a dandruff problem when I put chemicals to relax my hair. I used a tea tree oil-based scalp ointment and it reduced it tremendously. I’m not too fond of the tea tree oil smell though.

      Good to know about the mold thing, it would have been handy in my last apartment. Here I just turn on the fan or heater and dry out the room.
