My next couple posts are going to be green discoveries made on my weekend trip to western Massachusetts, which by the way is very green, but more on that later. One of the joys I rediscovered on my trip was tea tree oil. This first came about as a result of my blisters. My poor feet, they get tortured every time I travel. So when we got to stop at Whole Foods I grabbed some organic tea tree oil and band aids. For those of you who don't know, tea tree oil has naturally occurring antibiotic and antibacterial qualities. On my tootsies it went to start healing immediately.
Later that evening my friend Tiffany was having a lot of trouble with a stuffy head, sneezing, and runny nose. Because we had nothing else, I just suggested she try sniffing the tea tree oil and see if that helped. Sure enough, she was instantly cleared up and feeling better! What a little miracle oil!
We also use it as home on our cloth wipes to help prevent nastiness (yup, that's the very technical reason). What have you used tea tree oil for?
