I love hanging around in the bookstores on the weekends as I can take time to read up some organic health books on the shelves. Though the internet is a great source of information, flipping the pages of health books and magazines is still my favourite past time. It is inspiring to discover new information on alternative therapies.
I have a friend who has recently gone into an organic health business and she was sharing with me the wonderful benefits of tea tree oil. I’ve been using tea tree oil for many years and find it to be an amazing first aid item in the home. Besides using it on itch, bites and cuts, tea tree oil can also be used for animals; Bites, cuts, stings, rashes, dermatitis, lice, mange, ringworm, fleas, and ticks are just a few of its veterinary uses. Some people find that it is one of the best acne treatments though you may need to dilute it on sensitive skin areas.
Melaleuca oil may be applied full strength or diluted in water or other type of oil like olive oil. Most tea tree oil that is produced is added to skin and beauty care products, such as deodorants, shampoos, and mouthwashes. Industrial-grade oils are used as disinfectants, floor detergents, and can be added to air conditioning and ventilation systems to kill mold and fungus. There is no doubt that tea tree oil is one of nature’s most precious organic health remedies.
