The Melaleuca Wellness Guide is filled with safer solutions to many everyday problems. One of the reasons a product works for multiple, and sometimes unusual, uses has to do with the individual properties of a product. Take for example T36-C5 Melaleuca oil. It is naturally antiseptic, soothing, aromatic, penetrating, and a natural solvent. The unique and combined properties of T36-C5 make it effective for various solutions.
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide lists over 130 conditions that use Melaleuca oil as a remedy. Other products such as Sol-U-Mel are similarly multitasking with close to 140 uses. Here are some of our favorite summertime uses of Melaleuca products:
Insect Repellent — Add a few drops of T36-C5 Melaleuca oil to an aroma light or small pan of boiling water to keep insects away.
Cuticles — Apply T36-C5 Melaleuca oil to dry-cracked cuticles. Also use MelaGel which has 23% Melaleuca oil, cocoa butter, and natural beeswax to seal over wounds and promote healing.
Fingernails — When working in the garden and other particularly dirty areas, it can be challenging to clean our nails. Try washing them with MelaBrite. They will come clean almost instantly and remain snow white. A preventative tip is to rub MelaGel under your fingernails before gardening. Some gardeners also dig their fingernails into a Gold Bath Bar as a dirt preventative.
Dog Odor Remover — Sometimes a dog will roll onto something gross. Remove gunk with paper towels and Tough & Tender. Follow this with diluted Sol-U-Mel.
Super Glue — If you have ever glued your fingers together with Super Glue, you will really appreciate this suggestion. Apply a couple of drops of T36-C5 Melaleuca oil to the glued area and rub for a couple of minutes. Viola, the glue comes off and skin stays soft. (This works for Crazy Glue, too).
Now look again at the uses:
The insects are repelled by the aromatic nature of Melaleuca oil.
Cuticles are soothed by the soothing and healing-antiseptic nature of Melaleuca oil. MelaGel moisturizes and helps seal and heal cuticles.
The fingernails are made almost instantly white by the brightening and gently cleansing nature of MelaBrite. The MelaGel and Gold Bar serve as "dirt barriers." And the solvent and penetrating nature of the products makes for a quick release of the dirt under the fingernails.
Dog odors are removed by the penetrating and solvent nature of the Melaleuca oil, Sol-U-Mel, and Tough & Tender.
The glue is dissolved by the solvent nature of Melaleuca oil.

Before I put fresh flowers in a vase, I squirt just a touch of diluted Tough & Tender to the water. The flowers last way longer and the water stays nice and clear.
After starting to use rubber gloves to "protect my skin" while doing dishes, I was surprised to see the adverse reaction to not dunking my hands daily in Lemon Brite water: my finger nails became brittle and cracked -- very ugly. It took several days to figure out what was going on. Needless to say, I returned to my daily hand bath, and my nails returned to their usual strength! I love Melaleuca products and RM Barry's book! The Melaleuca Wellness Guide is 2nd in importance only to my Bible, both sitting at my side. Thank you, RM Barry and Melaleuca!
I had an unusual experience with our "magic potion," Sol-U-Mel. One of my customers called me and asked what could be used to treat severe infections in a person's legs from diabetes complications. The doctors had given up and were discussing amputation. I looked up gangrene in The Melaleuca Wellness Guide and sure enough there was treatment with Sol-U-Mel and a combination of some of our other products. I sent her the information and they followed the treatment guidelines, and his legs recovered within 2 days! Amazing! I love my Wellness Guide and use it all the time. It has so much great information in it, along with miraculous solutions to so many ailments.
I was in Mexico for a destination wedding, and I went in the pool for literally 30 minutes. I knew I wasn't going to be in long, so I didn't put any sunscreen on. Honestly, I hadn't even brought it because I was the wedding planner and thought I wouldn't have any time to myself. I was burned to a crisp! I had a major sunburn on my shoulders, and didn't have any aloe or after-sun products with me. I remembered that tea tree oil and cucumber were in the Clarity Oil-Free Moisturizer, which I brought with me, so I put it on my shoulders. Instant relief!
In our house we find Sustain Sport excellent for treating sudden and painful leg cramp (we're both seniors). I also gave some to an acquaintance who was entering detox for alcoholism. His experience was that it was so helpful in dealing with the cravings and withdrawal that he credits it with the success of his program. I haven't seen this tested elsewhere, but it is fantastic if it is a dependable use of the product!
I love all of our products. It is so difficult to choose a favorite, but the MelaGel comes close to it for me. I always have MelaGel on hand; there is a tube in my purse and jacket pocket all the time. I use it for so many things, especially to help with bug bites, as I live up north and the black fly bites are nasty. The MelaGel takes the swelling right down and the itch away likes nothing else. I think that the most unusual use I have for MelaGel is that I put it in my nose daily, as it just makes it easier for me to breathe. I have fibromyalgia so sometimes my nose and sinuses just get irritated from air, and the MelaGel is so soothing. Used in this way it helps with headaches too and helps stop a cold from coming on. I also put it in my ears as they itch inside, and the MelaGel helps with this too. I love The Melaleuca Wellness Guide and use it all the time to find out what to do about anything that ails us.
I am an athlete and a personal trainer. I work out five to six days a week and work very closely with my clients. One morning I found myself in a funny predicament. My Melaleuca deodorant was finished and I had forgotten to select a new one with my last order. In a moment of desperation I reached for my bottle of Melaleuca oil and applied it directly to the very sensitive skin under my arms. I've always enjoyed the scent of the oil but was pleasantly surprised by the cooling sensation I felt. I went through the day with confidence and repeated the use until my next order arrived. An added bonus, it helps to clear up razor burn! My underarms thank you and so do my clients.
I saw a swarm of ants and the closest product was Sol-U-Guard Botanical. It wiped out the whole pile of them (so no more raid). Finally, a safe bug spray!
If Melaleuca manufactures something, I don't buy it anywhere else! I have totally switched stores, so I have a few unusual uses for different products. Where I live we have extremely hard water. My kitchen faucet was spraying out every which way. I took a baggy and filled it with Tub & Tile and tied it on the faucet. Several hours later I took it off and now the water comes out perfectly. I use the Rustic touch as a conditioner for my leather sofa and my car seats. My age spots are getting lighter and smaller because of Timeless. Yes, Melaleuca products work. Thanks RM Barry for getting the word out about how to use these wonderful products.
I have been a Melaleuca customer for 2 1/2 years now and love everything I've used. One of the products that gets a different use in my house is the Diamond Brite. It does a great job on the dishes and I no longer need to combine products to get sparkling dishes, but its "night job" is to brighten my white kitchen farm sink! I had been told to bleach it periodically but since I no longer keep bleach in my home, I was wondering if I'd have to live with a dingy sink. Not so - Diamond Brite's enzymes do the trick! Thank you Melaleuca and RM Barry!
We would not be without T36-C5 Melaleuca oil! We have a horse farm, and colic kills more horses each year than any other illness. When we have a horse that is "colicking," we immediately put 3cc's of Melaleuca oil in a syringe, and put in the back of the horse's throat. Every single time without fail, within 5 minutes the horse is fine and eating hay again. Our last episode was just 3 months ago, and our neighbor who works for a horse vet, saw it work right before her own eyes and she couldn't believe it! We haven't lost a horse to colic since we have been Melaleuca customers for 11 yrs. Thank God for Melaleuca!!
