Melaleuca, also known as Tea Tree oil, is one of my favorite doTERRA essential oils because it is versatile and has a range of applications. One of the things I love most about Melaleuca is its benefits for the skin and hair. Sometimes I put a drop or two of Melaleuca into my moisturizer, or even directly on my face after washing to reap the benefits of this purifying, toning essential oil. I also like to place a few drops of Melaleuca in my shampoo, or give myself a scalp massage with Melaleuca and Coconut Oil.
Melaleuca also promotes a healthy immune function and helps to protect us against environmental and seasonal threats. When I feel I need extra support, I make a capsule with a couple of drops each of Melaleuca, Oregano (or Thyme), OnGuard and Lemon. Works like a charm!
