I bought the tea tree essential oil to help with toenail fungus: I’ve been using it daily for a month and am beginning to see an improvement.

Good for clearing airways

I inhaled drops of this mixed in a bowl of hot water when I had a respiratory virus. Very effective for clearing the airways and not sharp on the throat.

Tea tree is my go to oil

Tea tree oil has so many uses. Antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial. I used to put some inside my mask when I went out in Covid times. Amazing how quick a cold will go if gargle two drops in half a glass of water. I love that Neals yard oils are in blue glass bottles as they should be.
