Tea Tree Oil in Humidifier: Air moisture eases skin, breathing symptoms. Relieve sinusitis: When the air is too dry, sinuses don’t drain and function properly.

Apply Tea Tree Oil for Body Odor: Tea tree is an antibacterial herb and tea tree oil derived from this herb is a natural antiseptic. As we know, antiseptics can kill bacteria and fungi present on the surface of skin. Moreover, this oil has a sweet smell too. Thus, applying this oil to eliminate body odor makes sense.

Great! It’s Mold-free: Mix 2 teaspoons of tea tree oil with two cups of water and add it to a spray bottle. If you’re using this in the bathroom, spray surfaces regularly.To actively remove mold, spray the solution directly to the mold and leave for an hour before using a scub brush to remove the debris.
