Melaleuca Alternifolia – 18 Young Living Tea Tree Oil Uses

June 2, 2015·

History**

Commonly known as “Tea Tree” oil or “Mel-A,” it was used in the 1700s by the indigenous people of Australia to treat cuts, wounds, fungus, and infections.

Application*

Topical: Apply 2-4 drops directly on location or Vita Flex points. Dilution not required, except for on the most sensitive skin (like little ones!).

Aromatic: Inhale directly from the bottle or diffuse.

Safety / Precautions:

  • As with all oils, NEVER get an oil in your ears or in your eyes. If you do, do NOT use water to get it out… simply apply a carrier oil to dilute the oil.
