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.

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.

I made a lotion using grapeseed oil, rosemary, lavender and tea tree EO's and have been applying it daily to two sores that I have had on my nose for a long time. They are finally healing up! It is taking a while, but it is working! I also put some in my apple cider hair rinse. It smells great and is wonderful for my dry, itchy scalp!

Tea Tree Oil = GOLD!
This essential oil is FANTASTIC. I have terribly sensitive skin and suffer from eczema, especially in the cold months. I dab a tiny bit of this oil on a q-tip and apply it to blemishes and overnight they disappear. I also add a few drops to my body lotion to help with my itchy dry skin. Another favorite way of mine is to drop a bit in a warm bath and relax. The smell is so earthy and clean! Also fantastic for in grown hairs, clears up any infection almost instantly. This oil is a MUST HAVE in your medicine cabinate, I swear by it.
