Tea Tree Tips – Top Uses for Melaleuca Alternifolia


It wasn’t ‘love at first whiff’…..

Tea Tree is admittedly a fragrance that has had to grow on me.   I learned to lay my personal feelings aside and allow this gem into my life because it’s benefits are too great to deny!

Combined with other oily-scents, and their benefits, Tea Tree has become one of my go-to’s.

I keep a bottle on my vanity for convenience cuz ya never know when you may need a dab or two!

[think facial blemish, hang-nail, papercut, or minor scrape…]
