This oil possesses numerous healing compounds and is abundant in health benefits.
These are 9 of its most beneficial uses:
1. Eczema and psoriasis
Melaleuca contains an abundance of anti-inflammatory properties that can help you against psoriasis and eczema, so you just have to mix 5 drops of tea tree oil, 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and 5 drops of lavender oil. Combine them well and use it as a cream.
2. Cuts and infections
