Words by Anny Schneider

Many plants are wrongly called "tea tree", this essential oil comes from the real tea tree (the Melaleucha with alternate leaves) and is one of the most used on the planet for its anti-fungal and bactericidal, even antiviral properties.

It is used repeatedly for at least a month straight diluted in 90% vegetable oil on areas of lesion due to fungi, or as a local antiseptic, on minor wounds of any kind.

Keep away from children, air, heat and light.
