Tea tree oil comes from the Melaleuca tree, a tree native to Australia. The Australians have used this oil for over a hundred years as an antibacterial, anti-inflamatory and as an antiseptic. Melaleuca is found in a variety of skin care products and cosmetics, household cleaning products and laundry products.
My scalp becomes dry and itchy over time. I add a few drops of tea tree oil to 1/4 cup each of melted coconut oil and shea butter. Then I apply the warm oil to my scalp about once a week and it has made a tremendous difference in how healthy my scalp looks and feel.
