Melaleuca, also known as Tea Tree oil, is one of my favorite doTERRA essential oils because it is versatile and has range of applications. What I love most about Melaleuca is its benefits for the skin and hair. I often 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 Fractionated Coconut Oil. We also use Melaleuca during the winter time with my son when the seasonal threats are causing him temporary congestion. He can rub the Melaleuca touch right on his chest or on the bottoms of his feet safely and it always helps to open his airways. I also find myself putting a few drops on my throat before bed time if I am feeling particularly run down and tired and I always wake up feeling more rejuvenated!
