Unusual Uses for Melaleuca Products

(Please read our disclaimer)

The Melaleuca Wellness Guide is filled with safer solutions for many everyday problems. The multiple properties of a product are one of the reasons a product can work for a variety of uses. Take for example T36-C5 Melaleuca Oil (aka tea tree oil). It is naturally antiseptic, soothing, aromatic, penetrating, and a natural solvent. The unique and combined properties of T36-C5 make it effective not only to heal skin but also as a natural solvent.

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:

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. The glue comes off and skin stays soft. (This works for Crazy Glue, too).

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.

Shoeshine - Try Rustic Touch when you want a quick and easy shoeshine. It is also very effective when shining leather purses.

Insect Repellent - Save your used MelaSoft Dryer Sheets and carry one in your front pocket, or tie it in your hair or cap. It really helps keep the bugs away.

Headache - The recently published Practical Guide to Essential Oils by RM Barry notes that applying a dilution of 10% peppermint oil to the forehead and temple areas was as effective as taking 1000mg of acetaminophen.

Try this blend: In a dropper bottle mix together 14 drops peppermint oil with 1 tablespoon carrier oil. Mix well and gently apply to forehead and temple areas. Avoid eye area. Do not use on babies or children.

Unusual Uses for Melaleuca Products Reviews

I have recently discovered that when I have an acne breakout I can use the Tooth Polish for a spot treatment. It dries it up and takes the redness away very quickly.


I have an unusual use for PreSpot. One of the bathroom mirrors had little hard to remove spots. I think it was hairspray residue and who knows what. I had tried different cleaners and microfiber cloths, and even plastic scrapers. Then it occurred to me to try PreSpot. I sprayed it on, let it set a bit, then used water to wipe it off. The little spots came off.

Here are my 2 tips.
1. Spray Tub & Tile inside pots, pans, baking dishes that have food stuck to them, fill with hot water and allow to soak for a little while, amazing how easy to clean after that.
2. Spray Tub & Tile to bottom of copper-bottom pans, brass candle holders and other brass items. Rinse with hot water and dry. Looks brand new again.

OK, here are my unusual uses for Melaleuca products:
First, I use a bit of Renew Lotion in my nose, when my nose is dry or raw. Second, is taking Sol-U-Mel into every motel where we stay.We try to pay as little as possible, so when we arrive we charge into the room to spray every door knob, remote, light switch, blanket, faucet handle, bed spread. Third, I have just learned from someone else! We recently returned from being gone for 2 weeks. We left our plants in the tub. They were dirty and dirtied the tub. I remembered hearing about someone cleaning their tub with Safe & Mighty Toilet Bowl Cleaner - It worked!

Our Melaleuca Tea Tree Oil - I cannot be without it. There are so many instances that you can use it and immediately see the results. Back, knee joints pain, rub it on and in few minutes you feel better. Cold, stuffy nose, cough, headache, there are so many testimonials; too many to mention every one. I carry it in my purse all the time. It is a way to get people interested in our products. While you are in a public place there is always someone with an issue that we can help, let them try it, and in few minutes they will thank you and there is a new prospective customer.

One of the most unusual product testimonies I have to share is using Renew Lotion to remove a watermark on a wood coffee table. A friend shared that tip and I tried it. I rubbed Renew Lotion into the watermark area, let it sit and came back to add rub a bit more and Voila! Watermark gone! Another testimony is using our Tub & Tile to clean silver. Who would have thought a shower cleaner would clean silver. Our Rustic Touch furniture polish is awesome on the dash board in your car. Spray it on the rag first then wipe. It smells nice too. I love that most of our products have multiple uses and it is fun hearing and trying other customers' product tips.

My daughter and I really love the Melaleuca products! It is just the two of us, so doing some jobs is quite challenging to figure out. We did not have paint remover for a project we were doing. So we tried using Sol -U-Mel in a stronger mix. We actually did a small video because it worked in lifting the latex paint off an old door! So not only did Sol-U-Mel make our project easier, but our house smelled wonderful.

Another unusual use was of the MelaGel on a dog who had been neutered. He kept licking himself, and it was getting infected. The vet got us to put a cone on him, but he did NOT like that, and being it was summer he needed to have free access to water. So we used MelaGel on him and took off the cone. He took one smell and did NOT lick himself any more. The tea tree smell was something he did not like. He also sure healed up fast using this! My daughter also used the tooth polish to clean the headlights and plastic on the car. It got rid of the dirt build up on the plastic and the fogginess on the lights.

I have very dry, sensitive skin. The summer months present particular problems when I am outside and exposed to sun and heat. My two secret weapons are Melaleuca Oil T36-C5 and Renew Bath Oil. For many women summer means additional shaving and waxing in the bikini area, which can lead to unsightly bumps and ingrown hair follicles. I use Melaleuca Oil after shaving and it really helps with this problem! Also, I use Renew Bath Oil right out of the bottle in small amounts on very dry skin (legs and arms). My husband commented on how soft my skin is. Thank you for these great products!

I have used tea tree oil for acute pain with hemorrhoids. Applied in the evening they have disappeared by morning. I now use Fiber Wise and have pretty much eliminated the problem. I have used tea tree oil for canker sores, earaches, cuts, burns. What a miracle oil!

~ Jan

I love Tub &Tile for its unusual uses. It is absolutely great for cleaning an awning, or patio furniture. Use it straight and you don't have to clean nearly as often - about once a year from my experience. Also, great for a radiator flush. Sol-U-Mel is great for cleaning a whiteboard!

~ Eileen

I have been a Melaleuca customer for over 10 years. I'm always telling my co-workers about the many uses of Melaleuca. One unusual use that came up was for removing gum from under the tables that we use at our agency for trainings and workshops. I just put one drop of the T36-C5 oil and the gum dissolves right away making it super easy to remove. I have also used the Sol-U-Mel to quickly and easily remove permanent marker from posters, tables, and walls. I love my Melaleuca!

I've been a customer for 13 years and have two "unusual" uses for Melaleuca products. 1. My car is 16 years old and the interior is black leather. I've used Rustic Touch and though it works very well, I recently dropped some renew on the seat and just rubbed it in. The leather has the sheen it had when I first purchased the car 14 years ago! 2. My father (90 year old WWII vet) loves Jell-O and I've always thought it better than any other desserts until I really read the label. So I've come up with my own version for strawberry Jell-O with strawberries in it using plain gelatin (3 packets) and Strawberry Kiwi Splash (double the concentration for increased flavor) with plenty of strawberries. A refreshing and healthy alternative!
