Hi Karen

I use Melaleuca products. Melaleuca Oil is the pharmaceutical grade of tea tree oil, it comes from the Melaleuca Alternafolia Tree that is native to Australia. There are all different grades of tea tree oil, Melaleuca, like I said is a higher grade, a pharmaceutical grade. (There are Melaleuca trees that are growing wild in parts of Florida, many of them are burned down on purpose because they grow so rampant. Again, they are a lower grade.)

This oil has been known for centuries for its seven amazing properties that give us the same, or better results as the toxic ingredients sitting in your home right now, but without the danger.

- it's an effective fungicide, killing mold and mildew;
- a natural antiseptic to kill staph, ecoli and other germs;
- it deeply penetrates all layers of skin to deliver medicinal benefits more effectively
- it's more soothing than Aloe Vera, so it's great for burns and cuts and it promotes rapid healing.
- itís aromatic and healing vapors help clear lung and chest congestion, soothe breathing difficulties, and help provide asthma relief;
- it's a natural solvent, providing the most effective cleaning power for home and laundry;
- and it's entirely non caustic so all of these properties are utilized without any exposure to toxic ingredients.

That section above comes from my presentation that I give three times weekly to those looking into Melaleuca Inc as an alternative shopping source for home, laundry, personal care, health, and pharmaceuticals.

I have used these products for 17 months and will be a customer for LIFE.

Let me know any specific questions that you have and I will happily fill you in

Here's what my Melaleuca Wellness Guide says:

You can apply T36-C5 Melaleuca Oil to any developing pestule. Use the T36-C5 to clear the plugged oil ducts.

It then goes on to say that you should follow that with the Renew Intensive Skin Therapy lotion (Melaleuca's product) to keep moisture in the skin and resist oil accumulation. It also says to avoid dry brush or friction rubs with alcohol as this naturally stimulates oil production.

Melaleuca has an entire line of acne products, but according to this you can use the T36-C5 directly on the pestules

I use tea tree oil (NOW brand) on mosquito bites. Somewhat relieves the itching and I would venture to guess that it promotes healing too, since it's a natural antiseptic/antibiotic.

I've just started using the Melaleuca products myself, really love the Pain-A-Trate.
I had bought some Tea Tree Oil last year for my granddaughter to help get rid of lice-someone had suggested it to me since we were having such a problem in this area last school year. Anyway, the caustic smell was real bad-I wish I had been able to find the shampoo instead of the straight oil at the time. Didn't seem to do anything for the lice either.
This year I've had my daughter start shampooing my granddaughter's hair with the melaleuca shampoo to help eliminate any lice problems before they start.
I got into the Meleleuca products because my friend swears that the oil has helped her husband stop snoring for 3 to 5 days at a time. She has him put some oil on a Q-tip and apply it to the inside of his nostrils. She swears that he doesn't snore using it. I'm hoping it'll work with my husband too!!
Amanda, I'm happy to see someone else demonstrating the Melaleuca products. I'm not doing that yet, but in time I just might start.

boggsz where do you live? I'm in rural SE NC myself.
you can go to www.melaleuca.com and check out this company and their products-totally non-toxic too. My friend who got me started with this product told me about a couple with a 3yr old. Their daughter got hold of the cleaner Melaleuca carries and she drank some. The mother frantically called poison control and told them what she drank. When she mentioned melaleuca they told her her daughter would be fine, she might have a touch of diarrhea but nothing else.
I didn't add the oil to regular shampoo, only because the odor of the oil I bought was so strong that my granddaughter and daughter wouldn't let me use it again on her hair.
The scent in the melaleuca products is no where as strong though.
Take care.
