The wonderful thing about tea tree oil is how many things you can use it for - it's a first aid kit in a bottle as it can be applied to minor cuts, burns, sunburn, abrasions, bites and stings; cures fungal infections like athlete's foot; prevents tooth decay and my sister swears by it for acne. Run out of lysol? It can even be used as cleaner and kills 99.9% of household germs!
It's been taking care of a stinkier problem for me though, it's hot, my feet spend all day in sweaty shoes, by the time I get home they do not smell like roses let me tell you! But 2 drops of tea tree oil in a foot bath of tepid water for 10 minutes and they are no longer an offense to decent people - to top it off, a couple drops of the oil in a spray bottle of water and I can take care of the stinky shoes themselves too - genius!
