    my in-laws sell melaluca. Of course I don't have the time to sell it myself but i buy the products. I love the air freshners, shampoo, lotions, and the oil. I used the oil on an abscessed tooth and it did wonder, It's also great for migraines. They have a wonderful line of protein shakes and smoothies. I highly recommend trying it yourself.

    It doesnt need to be fancy or expensive to work, but be aware, some people are allergic (like me) and get rashes

    it is an Australian native tree, the oil distilled from the tree has great anti bacterial and anti fungal properties. WHO has recognised it uses. It has been known and used in Australia for 200 years by whites and far longer by the blacks.

    Tea tree oil is a yellowish green-tinged essential oil with a fresh camphoraceous odour. It is taken from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia which is native to the northeast coast of New South Wales, Australia. The oil is claimed to have beneficial cosmetic and medical properties (including antiseptic and antifungal action).

    The term "tea tree oil" is somewhat of a misnomer since Melaleuca alternifolia is a paperbark rather than a tea tree (genus Leptospermum). Tea tree oil should also not be confused with tea oil, the sweetish seasoning and cooking oil from pressed seeds of the tea plant Camellia sinensis or the tea oil plant Camellia oleifera.

    Tea tree oil has been recognized as a potent antiseptic in Australia anecdotally for much longer than there has been scientific evidence. However, recent studies support a role for tea tree oil in skin care and treatment of various ailments.

    Tea tree oil is a known antifungal agent, effective in vitro against multiple dermatophytes found on the skin.In vivo, shampoo with 5% tea tree oil has been shown to be an effective treatment for dandruff due to Malassezia furfur, the most common cause of the condition.

    Effectiveness of topical tea tree oil preparations for Candidiasis is supported by their ability to kill Candida in vitro.

    In the treatment of moderate acne, topical application of 5% tea tree oil has shown an effect comparable to 5% benzoyl peroxide with less risk of adverse drug reaction, albeit with slower onset of action.

    Tea-tree oil is also effective for treating bug bites, boils and minor wounds. It may cause less of a stinging sensation than some other antiseptics
