descriptionFresh and antiseptic, rather pungent aroma, some might characterize it as medicinal. This is a �must have� essential oil. It is antibiotic, antiseptic, antiviral, bactericide, cicatrizant, expectorant, fungicide, insecticide and sudorific. Although it may cause irritation on sensitive areas of skin, along with Lavender it is just about the only oil that many recommend to be used neat or straight from the bottle without dilution.
Tea tree has extensive applications in medicine and veterinary medicine (rarely, if ever, used on cats or birds, use caution). Its most important usage is to help the immune system fight off infectious diseases. Activates the white corpuscles to form a defense against invading organisms and helps to shorten the duration of illness. Indicated for influenza, cold sores, and gingivitis.
A series of massage with this oil before surgery may help to fortify the body. Its strong antiviral and germicidal properties are useful in repeated infections. Its fungicidal properties help clear vaginal thrush and is of value with genital infections generally. Alleviates urinary tract problems such as cystitis. Gives relief to genital and anal itching as well as general itching from chicken pox to rashes caused by insect bites. Said to give some protection against x-ray therapy in breast cancer. It will apparently reduce scarring when applied before treatment as the protective film will guard against very deep penetration of the x-rays. Helps to ease otitis. Reduces pus in infected wounds. Clears blemishes caused by chicken pox and shingles. Useful with minor burns, sores, sunburn, ringworm, warts, tinea, herpes and athletes foot. Helpful with dry conditions of the scalp as well as dandruff.
Blends well with cinnamon, clove, cypress, eucalyptus, ginger, lavender, and thyme. Flash point: 122F. UN#: 1993, UN Pkg Group: III. Cannot ship via air or ocean without appropriate packing and documents.

You can't beat the price. I use tea tree oil for everything. It is great for after shave, pimples, and any boo-boos.

I used this to cure athlete's foot, and it worked better than my prescription! Has strong anti-fungal and anti-bacterial qualities, which makes it good for acne in small doses. Has a strong herbal, yet refreshing scent...some love it, some hate it! Make sure you don't use full strength, as it can be irritating and make your skin tingle.

Tea Tree is a versatile EO - this is great quality!
So, in my many years as an aromatherapist this EO has been one of my "go to" oils for just about anything skin. It's nice to have a place to purchase larger quantities of a great quality tea tree. I use this tea tree in my respiratory/skin blends - LOVE IT

This wonderful oil!
Listen here! This oil needs to be in everyone stash. I use this for pretty much everything! Hair dry or oily type..very good to keep the dandruff away longer (oil treatment, shampoo, conditioner, hair mask), skin..it helps for all skin type, esp ones for oily acne prone skin. It helps for all skin type with acne or even if you don't have acne, still good to use. You could use this as an addition to clean your house. Womanly things. Warts and anything with anti fungal. I could go on and on. One of many essential oil I will always have.

The wonder oil!
This is one of the 2 "go to" oils in my stash. I use it for everything - add a drop to my face wash, use it on my girls' scratches, use it in my deodorant...the list goes on and on. The fragrance is sharp, clean and can be a bit overwhelming, but does blend nicely with any other oil.
