Recently I read an article about Tea Tree Oil and it explains all of it’s benefits. For years we have sold a laundry additive, DeMite, that has Tea Tree Oil as one of its active ingredients and 1,000’s of our customers just love it. I know my wife washes our sheets every week with it. DeMite works great getting rid of the allergens from dust mites.
The article goes on to talk about using it as an earth friendly cleaner, athletes foot treatment, shampoo and deodorizer. We find that either you like the smell, similar to eucalyptus, or you don’t. There doesn’t seem to be a middle ground when it comes to the aroma of Tea Tree Oil.
One of the things I found funny is the article speaks so highly of the Australian Tea Tree. Here in South Florida we call them Melaleuca trees. The county, state, and federal government have spent millions of dollars every year to get rid of them. They are considered an invasive and a threat to the Everglades. They have even released specific bugs to try to kill the trees. There is a rich irony that bugs are being used to kill trees that produce an oil used to control bugs.
