Tea tree oil is a great oil with so many uses that I am sure it will become a staple in your house. I am going to share a brief list of the many uses for tea tree oil around the home and for personal care. Often people hear how great an oil is but what good is spending money on something if your not aware of the many uses it has. Then it just sits around your home taking up space.

  1. Can be used to treat toe nail fungus
  2. Acne, – try dabbing it on your acne and let it dry
  3. Clean surfaces by adding 2 Teaspoons to 2 Cups of water
  4. Apply either directly or partially diluted to a cold soar it helps heal faster
  5. Add 4-5 drops of tea tree oil to your shampoo to help heal dandruff  (or apply directly to scalp for a treatment)
  6. Add 10 drops to a cup of water then spray onto pet or work through pet’s hair with flea comb
  7. Add 1 Tablespoon to your washer to disinfect
  8. Apply 2 drops to a tick then try removing if it doesn’t let with tweezers add another drop
  9. Add 1 Teaspoon to a boiling pot of water and steam your face
