Can you use this recipe for sinusitis?


    Hi Terry,

    The best thing would be to check with your doctor to make sure this is OK for you to try, but Tea Tree Oil is natures natural anti-septic which inhibits a broad spectrum of bacteria and fungi, as well as cleanses and protects the areas of application.
    Hope this helps.
