Tea Tree Oil should be in every medicine cabinet. In fact, it was considered so valuable to the Australian war effort during WWII that people employed in the production of Tea Tree Oil were exempt from the draft. To me its woody medicinal smell means relief from some of life's most pesky issues: acne, toenail fungus, athlete's foot, dandruff, lice, scrapes, and rashes. I often add it to Eucalyptus for a blend to help my sinus issues.
Use it in a diffuser and breathe in the aroma or simply open the bottle and waft it under your nose. Place a few drops in a steamy bath for a relaxing experience. Use a drop or two in a blend with your moisturizer/shampoo/ conditioner to help nurture your skin and hair.
