The Top 3 Best Uses for Melaleuca (Tea Tree) Essential Oil

  1. Face Wash – the cleansing properties of Melaleuca (Alternifolia) can help your skin fight off acne.
  2. Scalp Care – add about 10 drops to any shampoo bottle to soothe scalp dryness and help prevent flakes.
  3. Skin Care – from treating diaper rash to lightening skin tags and toenails, tea tree oil is great.

How to Use

Apply 2-4 drops directly to your skin. Dilution is not required, except for the most sensitive skin. Test on a small area first. Use as needed. Keep out of reach of children. Consult a healthcare practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition. Irritant reactions and contact allergy have been reported infrequently and can be minimized by avoiding the use of neat oil and storing the oil correctly.

About Melaleuca

Secondary plant metabolites such as essential oils have been used throughout history for therapeutic purposes. The essential oil that is steam distilled from the Australian native plant Melaleuca alternifolia (Myrtaceae), also known as melaleuca oil or tea tree oil, is used topically for its known effects.
