This oil is an excellent choice for wound care and tissue healing, and has long been known as a potent anti-fungal agent. It has been documented to kill many bacteria, viruses and fungi on contact, so — it is excellent for cuts, wounds and burns, and anywhere harmful bacteria might be found.
Melaleuca is also effective to use at the onset of flu or cold symptoms. Just add 2-5 drops of oil to a teaspoon of agave or honey, and add to warm water or tea, or let sit and dissolve on the tongue before swallowing. Initially, this should be done every 20-30 minutes; then, when symptoms are under control, reduce to 2-3 times per day.
Melaleuca alternifolia is also effective at treating gum inflammation, and can be used for periodontal disease.
For wounds, cuts, bites, fungus, athlete’s foot, skin disorders and less severe burns, apply melaleuca topically and neat (undiluted). For application to more sensitive areas, especially the genitals, for herpes or thrush, dilute with a carrier oil.
For dandruff, add a 5% dilution to your shampoo.
For mouth and gum problems, gargle or oil-push a 5% dilution.
