Melaleuca


This week the weather changed. It got cold and even snowed a little. I woke up this morning with a swollen glands. My dad and his wife are coming in today to visit for a few days. I have so much to do before they get here. I got out of bed and went into the kitchen and grabbed my bottle of Melaleuca (tea tree essential oil) and put a drop on my tongue.

I made some coffee, picked some things up that didn't get put away the night before. About 10 minutes later I put another drop on my tongue. It was so relieving  you can feel it working, up ythrough your head, loosening everything up and killing what ever is trying to get in. I put a load of laundry in and then got a cup of coffee. Before I started my coffee I put one more drop of Melaleuca on my tongue. Occasionally this will take care of the problem.


About Melaleuca

Renowned for its cleansing and rejuvenating effect on the skin
• Promotes healthy immune function
• Protects against environmental and seasonal threats
• Promotes a clear, healthy complexion
• Soothes minor skin irritations
• Helps purify and freshen the air



Melaleuca oil or tea tree oil, (TTO) as it is often referred, was named by Captain Cook who often used it as a tea. An Australian chemist, A.R. Penfold, studied tea tree leaves and discovered their antiseptic properties. Tea tree oil subsequently became a standard treatment in Australia for the prevention and treatment of wound infections. During World War II, the Australian government classified tea tree oil as an essential commodity and exempted producers from military service.  

Melaleuca Essential Oil is from the botanical family Myrtaceae, with the oil being processed by steam distillation from the leaf of the tree.


Application
Apply topically and neat (undiluted). 

Add a 5% dilution to shampoo to address scalp problems.  Gargle or oil-push a 5% dilution of Melaleuca to effectively address mouth and gum problems.  Melaleuca is  supportive of the immune system when diffused. When you feel those germs attacking and coming on, put one drop on tongue every ten minutes for a half hour. Thank you Modern Essential book for the information.
