Starter Kit Oil Series: Melaleuca Alternifolia

Melaleuca Alternifolia (also known as Mel-a or tea tree oil) is definitely the oil in the kit I was least knowledgable about. But it has been so much fun reading up on each of these, online, in my EOPR and in my Gentle Babies book to see exactly what they can do.

What I know Mel-a can do is keep my skin clear. It’s one of those “don’t want to live without it” oils because it’s a must-have in my face blend.

I have several “can’t wait to try” uses for Mel-a.

One I will be trying TOMORROW: put 10 drops in your shampoo to help prevent dandruff, dry scalp and lice? Why wouldn’t I do this?

I also am just waiting for the opportunity to try these uses for tea tree oil:

Cold sore
Mouth ulcer
Bug bite
Raised mole/wart
Yellowing nails
Diaper rash


I didn’t realize how handy Mel-a was until reading up on it! Glad I did and hope it helps you too.
