Melaleuca essential oil is best known for its purifying properties. It can be used to cleanse and purify the skin, encourage healthy nail growth, promote a healthy scalp, and beautify the complexion. 

Melaleuca essential oil has over 92 different constituents, which accounts for its nearly limitless applications. When applied topically, Melaleuca promotes a healthy complexion and reduces the appearance of skin blemishes. This is due to Melaleuca’s high concentration of monoterpene alcohol terpinen-4-ol, which has been researched extensively as a topical solution for several skin concerns.

Combine one to two drops of Melaleuca with your facial cleanser or moisturizer to maintain a healthy complexion. For blemishes or occasional skin irritation, apply a drop of Melaleuca directly to skin. 

Melaleuca is highly nourishing to the scalp and hair. When added to shampoo, Melaleuca will help keep hair looking thick, clean, and healthy. It also beautifies nails. Massage a few drops of Melaleuca oil to your fingernails and toenails to keep nails looking healthy.

You can also use Melaleuca as a surface cleaner and purifier. Add a few drops of Melaleuca to a spray bottle filled with water and use on hard surfaces to deodorize and clean. Also try spraying the inside of stinky shoes or your gym bag. 

Versatile and easy to use, Melaleuca Touch is great to keep on hand when you're on the go. It is already diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil and comes in a roll-on bottle.

Melaleuca essential oil is a relative newcomer to the global aromatherapy world. While some essential oils have been used for thousands of years, Melaleuca was relatively unknown outside its native Australia until the 18th century. However, in its native lands, Melaleuca was used for centuries to support healthy respiration* and to soothe the skin.
