Herb Spotlight: Tea Tree for Everything

Almost every home made disinfectant that I make includes tea tree oil, probably because it is a natural antiseptic and anti bacterial. The plant derives from Australia where Aboriginals were seen making tea out of the leaves and sailors followed suit to prevent scurvy. I like to burn it in my diffuser when we’ve been sick or whenever things just don’t feel clean in my home. I really became acquainted with tea tree after our last little kitten rescue brought ringworm into our house. None of the store bought creams were working and I was so frustrated. Tea tree took it out in 2 days, amazing. This is a great oil for anyone with pets or kids to have around the house, and it can do even more than get rid of ringworm. It is only applied topically and used in aromatherapy.

Dab directly into the skin after applying to a cotton ball for help with bacterial infections and other skin ailments.

It will clear energy blockages in the upper chakras and wards off demons in the wake of cleansing and protection. Add it to a talisman or amulet and encourage strength in the wearer.

    My 2 year old daughter got ringworm on her arm. I have no idea where it came from as she was the only one in the house to get it. We used the prescribed cream but every once in a while a new little abrasion pops up in the same spot. I never thought of trying tea tree oil! I’m going to start and see how it works! Thank you 🙂

      I’d dilute it for the little ones it’s really abrasive. But yeah, just dab it on a cotton ball and apply to the ringworm. Super contagious by touch so be careful. No problemo darlin!
