Melaleuca Alternifolia – Disinfecting

Melaleuca alternifolia
Melaleuca alternifolia or more commonly known as Tea Tree, is an oil well known for its ability to disinfect. It is highly antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiseptic and anti- inflammatory. It promotes cleansing and purifying.

It is an oil I like to use on wounds to disinfect them.

  • I drop a drop straight on the wound, (I don’t really notice any stinging. If it does sting then I follow with a carrier (fatty) oil like almond, olive, Young Living’s V6 etc…) then wrap the cut in a bandaid. 
  • I also make a disinfecting spray. Add 40-50 drops of Melaleuca alternifolia in a 250 ml (8oz) glass bottle then I top with water, shake to combine. I shake the bottle before every use.
    This spray is great to use when traveling to disinfect showers and Hotel rooms.

Hint: when you are putting oils on woulds and you want to follow with a bandaid make sure you don’t put the oil where the sticky part of the bandaid is going to ge as the essential oil will breakdown the glue and it will loose its stickiness.
