tea tree oil We are a busy bunch of people, and multi-purpose products are everywhere on drug-store shelves.

From shampoo and conditioner combos to toothpaste that contains mouthwash, many companies are looking for ways to combine products in order to save you time (and sell you more stuff of course).

What if I told you that there is a product that is completely natural and that could replace many other products that you use frequently?

Have I got your attention? Good, then I will proceed.

Tea Tree Oil is the essential oil of the Melaleuca Tree.  This oil is amazing and can replace the following items you have in your medicine cabinet:

tea tree essential oilAntifungal Cream
Tea Tree Oil is one of the most effective antifungal agents available.

Studies have shown that this natural oil is just as effective as the leading antifungal creams at treating many common fungal infections including athlete’s foot, ringworm, and nail fungus.

It is gentle enough for babies (please check with your pediatrician before using on a child younger than 3) and tough enough for adults.

Antiseptic Wash
Tea Tree Oil can also be used to clean wounds like cuts and burns and prevent them from becoming infected.

It is equal in effectiveness to alcohol or peroxide but without the burn associated with either.

A cotton ball with a drop or two of oil placed over a wound and secured with a bandage is enough to prevent infections.

Acne Medication
Forget about putting harsh chemical treatments on your skin; instead treat your acne with the gentle action of tea tree oil.  The oil will kill the bacteria that cause acne flair-ups and leave your skin luscious and clear.

These are just the beginning of what you can replace with tea tree oil.  A few more are:

  • Vapor rub (for soothing congestion)
  • Cleaning Wipes (like those made by Clorox or Lysol)
  • Multi-surface Cleaning Spray
  • Bug Bite Spray
  • Cold Sore and Canker Sore Medicine
  • Eczema Treatment
  • Callus Remover
  • Bad Breath and Oral Health Rinse

And this still is not a complete list!  It is amazing what you can do with a small bottle of tea tree oil.  So, before you buy any of the above listed items, maybe you should consider buying tea tree oil from a reputable vendor instead.  It is certain to be used over and over again!
