Melaleuca

Another Favorite! Do you ever get pimples or suffer from acne? Are you a grown adult and thought you should be done with this?! I’ve also written about Melaleuca when our family has ear infections.

Melaleuca, or Tea Tree oil, is best known for its purifying qualities, which make it useful for cleansing the skin and home surfaces, purifying the air, or promoting healthy immune function.*

Uses

  • For occasional skin irritations, apply 1–2 drops of Melaleuca essential oil onto affected area.
  • Add 1–2 drops to water, citrus drinks, or veggie caps to support healthy immune system function.*
  • Combine 1–2 drops with your facial cleanser for added cleansing properties, or apply to skin after shaving.
  • Apply to fingernails and toenails after showering to purify and keeps nails looking healthy.
  • Add a few drops to a spray bottle with water and use on surfaces to protect against environmental threats.

Directions for Use

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in 4 fl. oz. of liquid.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.

Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.

So a couple ways that our house has used it is

  1. Apply a little on to a skin blemish like a pimple
  2.  Take a drop of it and put it on a cotton ball and put right into the ear for an ear ache. DO NOT CRAM IT DOWN IN! I just put it loosely into the ear and easy to get back out.

Ear Infections….does your family get them?

Do your kids get ear infections or ear aches? Have YOU ever had them? I’m not discrediting how it is for kids, but it is so painful for adults too! I, all of a sudden started giving more sympathy to my kids when they got ear aches. Luckily for us, I can always catch and start to help treat ear infections when they first come by putting a little bit of Melaleuca on a cotton ball and putting it in the ear that hurts. Normally by the time my son wakes up in the morning, his ear is feeling so much better.

I have a great recipe for a roller bottle too, which I am in love with! Now the awesome thing is….I found these amazing labels that I use for my Rollerbottles that help remind you of the main ingredients in them, and because essential oils can be overwhelming when first starting out, they also remind you of good places to apply them! Amazing right?!

When I first started out using oils, I was told “less is more!”. You don’t have to use a whole bottle of your essential oil to create different recipes. Most recipes only take a few drops of each oil when you are creating them. Fractionated Coconut Oil is key to keep on hand! That is what I use for all of mine.

For this recipe you will use the following:

6 drops of Basil

6 drops of Lavender

6 drops of Melaleuca

Fill the rest of the 10ml bottle up with Fractionated Coconut Oil

You can pick up the stickers here

They have even created cute names for them so that you remember EXACTLY what this blend is for!

I think I’ve mentioned this before, I LOVE ESSENTIAL OILS! If your child wakes up in the middle of the night with an ear ache, go right to your oils and grab the rollerbottle you’ve already made up! Super easy! Remember, you can start getting oils today! Let me know when you are ready.
