Melaleuca Essential Oil: Great for Hair and Skin!

Melaleuca

Melaleuca, also known as Tea Tree oil, is one of my favorite doTERRA essential oils because it is versatile and has range of applications. What I love most about Melaleuca is its benefits for the skin and hair. I often put a drop or two of Melaleuca into my moisturizer, or even directly on my face after washing to reap the benefits of this purifying, toning essential oil. Do you have a pimple popping up? Dab a drop of melaleuca right on the area in the morning and at night and leave it alone…it will disappear! I also like to place a few drops of Melaleuca in my shampoo. You can also give yourself a scalp massage with Melaleuca and Fractionated Coconut Oil! I haven’t tried that one yet, but I’d like to.

BONUS!!!
Here’s another amazing benefit of Melaleuca…especially during this season. If you’re suffering from a scratchy or sore throat, add a drop or two of Melaleuca to a glass of warm water and gargle. Your throat will INSTANTLY feel better- I promise. Do that 2-3 times per day until you are feeling back to normal. I have tried and tested this many times and have never been disappointed.
