Tea Tree Organic Essential Oil

This oil is superb!! Having had an ugly big toe nail with some sort of fungal thing going on with it for a long while it’s finally beginning to look normal again! Thank you Neals Yard for working some more of your magic into another one of your blue bottles!

Tea Tree Oil a Must

I always have to have tea tree oil on my shelf. Best first aid product for skin eruptions.

Use this on cold sores as it's anti viral and it's brilliant. Much better for me than the products you can buy of brand name at the pharmacy.
