Melaleuca Oil – A Healing Story by Andrea
One of my sons had a frightening bicycle accident. He came in all scraped up and bleeding, but the worst part was that a chunk of skin was taken out of his chin. There was no point in taking him in for stitches because there was nothing there to stitch, so I turned to my oils. The first thing to do was to apply Melaleuca. I knew that this would stop infection from starting. I no longer use neosporin–I don’t want to put petrochemicals on my family any more. After applying the Melaleuca with a clean cotton ball, I then applied a mixture of Frankincense, Helichrysum and Lavender. I will be happy to share this recipe if someone wants it. My son only has a teeny scar now (from scratching at the scab!) There was no infection and his face with the worst wound, healed faster than his other injuries because we really focused on that area with our oils. I am incredibly thankful for doTerra oils.
Melaleuca Oil – A Healing Story by Laura
My daughter and her best friend’s family went on a trip this summer to Georgia. A few weeks before the trip, my daughter’s friend had her belly button pierced. While on the trip she was swimming in a public pool along with tubing in a river. She came home with an infected belly button. Her mother, who is a non-believer in the oils, was going to take her to the doctor the next day. I asked her to come over so I could put some oil on the area. I used one drop of Melaleuca on the infected area. The next morning, all of the puss and redness were gone. Her mother even asked me what else she could use the oil for!
Melaleuca Oil – A Healing Story by Tammy
I have 6 children and all of them have had ear infections or discomfort. The last 5 have seen doctors for those infections, and most of the time taken harmful antibiotics. The difference with baby # 6 is essential oils. Each time she’s pulled on her ear or otherwise indicated ear discomfort I’ve gently rubbed some Melaleuca diluted in coconut oil (about 2 drops of oil to 1 tbsp. coconut oil) along the outside of her ear. When she had a very painful infection I put a drop of Melaleuca on a cotton ball, placed it on her ear canal, and added a warm compress. Melaleuca has done the trick each time. It’s a much safer and gentler, healing way to deal with ear infections.

Pink Eye has a way of stopping our family in their tracks. Once one person gets it we are all on quarantine until it is gone because it makes its rounds. The last time it came I quickly rubbed Melaleuca and Lavender on our eye bones and it cleared up quick.
I also use Melaleuca in my homemade face wash and on Bandaids before they go one. Our home laughs at infections now
Helichrysum Oil – A Healing Story by Tess
My son Luke cut his finger and asked me if I had anything for it. I got out the Melaleuca Oil to clean it first and then applied Helichrysum Oil to the cut. The cut did not bleed anymore and closed up.

If you don’t know about doTERRA’s Loyalty Rewards Program you should find out about it! I knew I would be a loyal customer and I wanted to get rebates on my purchases so I could get free products. When I had points in my account, I redeemed them for the valuable Helichrysum Oil, aka “stitches in a bottle” just so I could have it on hand for emergencies.
When my daughter fell off the arm of the couch and hit her head on the corner of the coffee table, I was very thankful to have Helichrysum Oil in my medicine cabinet. She had a clean split right above her eye under her eyebrow. It was time to put this oil to the test! We covered her eye with a cloth, cleaned the wound with Melaleuca Oil and put on one drop of Helichrysum Oil to seal the cut.
It worked beautifully! It healed up quickly and it looks like there will not even be a scar!

Melaleuca Oil is one of the best oils that I have found for acne. Not only does it work really well, it also works really fast!
Melaleuca Oil – A Healing Story by Lucinda
I’m so excited! I made a stick deodorant with unrefined cocoa butter, coconut oil, beeswax, bentonite clay, Melaleuca Oil and lavender. I even poured the mix into a round, twist up deodorant container! It works great for me and my stinky teen. I don’t mind just using Essential Oils without going to the trouble of making a deodorant stick, but my son won’t do that and it was much easier to make than I thought.
Almost every recipe I found for making homemade deodorants had baking soda in the recipe but, I have heard from a few sources that some people react to baking soda so I used bentonite clay instead. One reaction is itchy armpits.
I know I will never use a toxic deodorant ever again! I hope you won’t either. If you are really stinky, you may have to reapply so the Melaleuca Oil can stay active and kill bacteria but, that is a small price to pay for maintaining health.
Melaleuca Oil – A Healing Story by Brandi
My 12-yo came to me and asked what oil would work on a canker sore. I told her to try Melaleuca Oil and see how it does. She was happy to report that it worked!
I love that my kids are asking for oils first and seeing their potential!
