Uses for Tea Tree, Melaleuca Essential Oil

Also known as melaleuca oil, tea tree essential oil is distilled from an Australian tree known as Melaleuca alternifolia. It is antiseptic, antifungal, antibiotic, antiviral and anti-inflammatory. Before you begin using any essential oil, try a small drop on the back of the hand to rule out potential allergic reactions.

  • Acne: Dilute tea tree oil with water to create a 5% solution. Apply to acne blemishes daily. Works similarly to benzoyl peroxide but without the drying effects.
  • Dandruff: Add 1 to 2 drops of pure tea tree essential oil to shampoo. Lather for about 5 minutes. Rinse and follow with conditioner, if desired.
  • Lice: Add to shampoo to create a 1% solution. Can work as well or better than chemical preparations in less than an hour. May take multiple treatments due to the short life cycle of lice.
