Tea Tree Oil Product Description
More commonly known as “Tea Tree,” Melaleuca essential oil has over 92 different compounds and limitless applications. The leaves of the Melaleuca tree were used by the Aborigines of Australia for centuries. They would crush the leaves and inhale the oil to promote feelings of clear breathing and apply the leaves directly to the skin for a cooling effect.
Melaleuca is best known for its purifying properties. It can be used to cleanse and purify the skin and nails and to support a healthy complexion. Taken internally, Melaleuca promotes healthy immune function*, and Melaleuca can be used on surfaces throughout the home to protect against environmental threats.
Melaleuca is frequently used on occasional skin irritations to soothe the skin and diffusing Melaleuca will help purify and freshen the air.

Melaleuca Essential Oil Uses and Benefits
- One common use of Tea Tree oil is for hair care. Many people use Tea Tree oil for hair because of its topical cleansing, rejuvenating, and purifying properties. Unlike chemical-ridden haircare products, Melaleuca essential oil offers a soft, gentle element to any hair care routine. If you are looking for ways to use Tea Tree oil for hair, check out our DIY Hair Detangler, that includes Melaleuca essential oil.
- Are your makeup brushes in need of some deep cleaning? Tea Tree oil’s benefits for skin and cleansing properties come together in this Makeup Brush Cleanser. Over time, your makeup brushes get covered in old makeup and dead skin cells. If you don’t want to be spreading that all over your face, you’ll need to give your brushes a good cleaning every once in a while. With just three simple ingredients, including Tea Tree essential oil, you can concoct a purifying makeup brush cleanser that will get rid of gunk and germs—restoring your makeup brushes to their former glory.
- Diffusing Tea Tree oil can help purify and freshen the air in your home. When diffusing Melaleuca oil on its own, use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice. Looking for a revitalizing diffuser blend that will freshen and purify any room? Add 2 drops of Lemon essential oil, 2 drops of Eucalyptus essential oil, 1 drop of Melaleuca, and 1 drop of Peppermint essential oil to your diffuser for a rejuvenating diffuser bend that will cleanse the air and awaken your senses.
- Like the ancient aborigines of Australia, many people still use Tea Tree oil for skin because of its purifying and toning properties. Because of these properties, Melaleuca oil can be used to help soothe occasional skin irritations. When you experience occasional skin irritations, apply one to two drops of Tea Tree oil onto the affected area, using doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to dilute the oil if necessary. The skin cleansing properties of Tea Tree oil reach further than just helping with the occasional skin irritation, however. Consider adding one to two drops of Tea Tree oil to your facial cleanser or moisturizer for added cleansing properties. Making Tea Tree oil a part of your daily skin routine will help keep your skin clean, toned, and healthy looking.
- Because of its cleansing and purifying properties, Tea Tree oil can be very helpful for cleaning purposes—especially throughout the home. Melaleuca oil is a good choice for homemade cleaners due to its ability to protect against environmental and seasonal threats. If you want an effective homemade cleaner, add a few drops of Tea Tree oil to a spray bottle with water and use on surfaces throughout the house. This mixture will help protect you and your family against environmental threats and purify all your surfaces with a herbaceous, green scent.
- Have you ever tried adding Tea Tree oil to your beverages? Although citrus essential oils are a popular choice for giving water extra flavor, there are many benefits to adding Melaleuca to your water or other drinks. Tea Tree oil can be added to water for a refreshing taste and to help support healthy immune system function.* When adding Tea Tree to your drinks, add it to water by itself or to citrus drinks for extra flavor. You can even combine Melaleuca with Peppermint essential oil and Lemon essential oil for a refreshing mouth rinse and breath freshener.
- The purifying properties of Tea Tree oil aren’t just good for hair and skin, you can also use Melaleuca oil to keep your fingernails and toenails looking and feeling healthy. Reap the benefits of Tea Tree oil for nails by applying some oil to your fingernails and toenails after you get out of the shower to keep them looking strong and healthy. When using Tea Tree oil topically, first dilute with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to prevent any skin sensitivity, and then apply a few drops to your skin.

“Melaleuca, also known as Tea Tree oil, is one of my favorite doTERRA essential oils because it is versatile and has range of applications. What I love most about Melaleuca is its benefits for the skin and hair. I often put a drop or two of Melaleuca into my moisturizer, or even directly on my face after washing to reap the benefits of this purifying, toning essential oil. I also like to place a few drops of Melaleuca in my shampoo, or give myself a scalp massage with Melaleuca and Fractionated Coconut Oil.
