Use it in our dogs' ears; doesn't cure ear mites, but prevents them - good cleaner too.

Used the shampoo after YEARS of stylists suggesting it...

Don't use it everyday because the conditioner is a bit heavy for my hair type... BUT... love it when I use it!!!

I was a wrestler in high school, and my mother was a natural cures freak. Anyways, I used Tee tree oil to cure Ring worm. I carried the bottle at all times and placed oil over the top of the lesion at least 50+ times a day. I just kept it wet with oil, and it killed the lesion in 2 days. No reoccurances. The only other thing that can do that is beach, but you burn your skin. Just my personal expericence.

Tea Tree Oil works WONDERS for infected/irritated/healing body piercings! My tragus piercing (ear cartilage) got horribly horribly irritated and tea tree dried it up in just a day or two!

I am Australian so was brought up using the stuff. It is amazing how many uses it has. Great antiseptic for stings, rashes, cuts, etc. I have also used it to dry out pimples. Can also be used to rub out sticky residue (from labels)....try it, even if you don't like the smell. (I personally love the smell!!!)

I've used it and it's great for itchy problems and soothes burning issues like bug bites.
