Tea Tree Oil, the Natural Mold Killerjen
On the path to living free of toxins and harmful chemicals there is one space that you need to consider every inch of: your home. Everything from our cleaning products to our pillows to our detergent can be ripe with harmful, illness-causing chemicals that are not good for anyone, especially those with allergies and asthma.
Because of this I am always searching for natural, effective alternatives. One of my favorite finds, that I use for both health and cleaning benefits, is tea tree oil. This wonder oil has amazing antiseptic and anti-fungal benefits, and it’s one of the only natural methods of killing MOLD. It doesn’t just remove it or discolor the area so it appears to be gone, it KILLS the mold.
Tea tree oil is so multifunctional and so powerful that a little bit will go a long, long way. I use a spray bottle and pour about 5 drops of oil per 2.5 cups of water.
