Re: [IPp] tea tree oil



Hi I am not Allison but I know tea tree oil well.

I buy ours at the food store now as they carry it in their health food
section.Most pharmacies now carry it too. Just ask for it and if they don't
have it, they can get it really quite easy.

We use tea tree oil for other things like on burns, sores, sore muscles and
even mixed in water for a rinse for sores in the mouth. It does have a small
smell that some dislike but other than that, it does work.
