How to Essential: Melaleuca

Melaleuca essential oil, also known as tea tree, is a very gentle essential oil. I like to use it for anything I would use a heavy hitter like oregano for, but when it also needs to be gentle to the user. I will add a couple of drops of melaleuca essential oil to my hair or skin to keep it healthy and blemish free. I will also use it teamed up with lavender when I have a bug bite or minor skin irritation. It is so mild I can use it almost anywhere (avoid mucus membranes - eyes, ears, nose, etc.) and have it be super effective.


More commonly known as “Tea Tree,” Melaleuca essential oil has over 92 different compounds and limitless applications. The leaves of the Melaleuca tree were used by the Aborigines of Australia for centuries. They would crush the leaves and inhale the oil to promote feelings of clear breathing and apply the leaves directly to the skin for a cooling effect. Melaleuca is best known for its purifying properties. It can be used to cleanse and purify the skin and nails and to support a healthy complexion. Taken internally, Melaleuca promotes healthy immune function*, and Melaleuca can be used on surfaces throughout the home to protect against environmental threats. Melaleuca is frequently used on occasional skin irritations to soothe the skin and diffusing Melaleuca will help purify and freshen the air.
