Oil Of The Week: Tea Tree (Week 2)

I've wanted to learn more about the oils I am using.  I have been doing a number of courses and workshops lately, learning to use essential oils safely in yoga, around pets and in our home.  This has prompted me to want to delve deeper into the individual oils I use.   I'm compiling a list of all the oils I've heard people say that they were loving and that I love, and I am going to study and bring you some information about each one of them.  I hope to bring you a new oil each week.  If I can do that for a year, we will all know much more about fifty two essential oils and their benefits over the next year!  For Week 2, I've chosen Tea Tree.  Tea Tree is this oils common name, it's botanical name is Melaleuca Alternifolia
