Anyone Else Use Tea Tree Oil For Healing Sores?

My DS had a sore on his leg that would not heal. Did get a scab but it would not peel off. The Dr. was going to put him in the hospital to remove it. She was using salt water but it only made it worse.

Did a search on the Internet and found this amazing oil. In a couple of days it started healing and making new skin.

Told my Sister about it and she put it on a blister on the bottom of her foot. Next day it was much better too. I see they have a full line of products from soaps to toothpaste.

Has anyone else used this product?

Yes I love it! I buy it in a health food store; 1/2 oz bottle for around $5.00. It has been a while since I bought any so i could be wrong on the price; it lasts such a long time.

It is also a broad spectrum fungicide and seems to kill all the mold families it contacts. It has a strong smell but that usually only lasts a few days. here is how I mix it for mold and mildew:

2 tsp tree tea oil
2 cups water
Combine in a spray bottle, shake to blend, and spray on problem areas. Do not rinse. makes 2 cups

tea tree oil

I have also used tea tree oil for many things - it works wonders. I bought it through a melaleuca consultant because all of their products contain it. The web address I believe is www.melaleuca.com check it out. You might like it!

Hi,
I've used Tea Tree Oil for mosquito bites(stops the itching), cuts and scrapes for several years.
I also have added it to shampoo for itchy scalp.
I buy mine from Walmart in the Phar. section where they keep the vitamins etc.
It's 100% tea tree oil.
Many uses. Most health food store carry a full line of tea tree oil products.
From soap to toothpaste.
Robin

We buy a 2 or 4 oz. bottle at Walmart for under $5. I mix 2oz baby oil with 2 oz. Tea Tree Oil. This we rub sparingly on our feet to help control athlete's foot. We have found the over the counter creams for athlete's foot to not work & the prescription medicines will damage your liver & the athlete's foot will easily come back. It will also keep your heels soft & smooth.
I believe the business Amanda endorses (Momswin) has to do with these melaleuca/Tea Tree oil products. There are also a few other threads discussing the uses of it.

Tea Tree Oil Remedies

Thanks everyone for your replies. Sometimes the old fashion remedies work just as well.

How long does it deter the mold for? I've got mold on my walls -- due to the area I live in -- and we have to rebleach the walls every 4-6 months. I'd love to find something better than bleach!

Thanks!

I, too, use products from www.melaleuca.com. They work great! Cheaper in the long run than anything that I have found in stores. As far as lice...my dd has had them twice in a year. She has switched to a shampoo with the oil as a main ingredient. No more lice. Treatment is quick, easy, cheaper than RID etc. with these products. Everything gone in 2 days including the nits. A neighbor tried it and had the same results. Check out the information. It works on a number of things, mold included, in a safer way that using chemicals.

I too use the Melaleuca products. I was really skeptical at first, but now I'll never use anything else. I have really sensitive skin and tend to break out from everything. New thing I'm allergic to, my office chair. Sat in it with shorts and developed a rash because it is man made leather and has fish oil in it . . . Used tea tree oil and it is gone, not the allergy, but the rash!
Other thing it has worked great for is my gums. After my second pregnancy, I began having problems along my gumline. The dentist said I had such bad gingivitis that I needed to have my gums scraped (painful!) and when finished nursing, he wanted me to start medication. I began using Melaleuca products about this time and my distributor told me that I should brush, rinse, and then take a cotton swab with a tiny bit of oil on it and rub it along my gums. It tasted awful, but when I went back to the dentist, he was amazed. Not a trace of gum disease, his actual comment, ""You have the healthiest gums I have seen in a long time!"
