Niaouli (Melaleuca quinquenervia) has been noted by Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt as an excellent general immune system booster, and an agent to help one with allergic reactions. His protocol is the application of 5-20 drops of oil directly to the skin after a shower, for best absorption. Niaouli oil is considered an analgesic, antiseptic, bactericide, cicatrisant, insecticide, decongestant and vermifuge. Its aroma is stimulating and uplifting; it clears the head and may aid in concentration. Niaouli oil is considered an excellent antiseptic for treating pulmonary infections such as bronchitis and sinusitis.
Tea Tree Essential Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) The oil is now well known in natural medicine for its antimicrobial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal effects.
