Home Remedies: Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is a natural disinfectant. It has antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic qualities.

During cold and flu season, it’s great for lung and sinus infections, and even asthma. Put a few drops on a warm washcloth, or on your palm, and rub your hands together. Cover your face and breathe deeply for a minute or so.

Tea tree oil is often used topically to treat many things, including swelling, wounds, rashes, fungi, acne, and even mites, lice and scabies. Check it out!
