[pct-l] Other wonders of tea tree oil

Check the label for 100% tea tree oil - some are mixed with a carrier oil, less
effective and not a good value. Tea tree oil is also antibacterial and antiviral.
It tastes awful, but a dilute mixture can be used as a mouthwash to help heal
cold sores. For those with middle-aged gums, like myself, the toothpaste keeps
gum disease at bay too. (tastes better too)

Thyme oil is an excellent anti-fungal too. The active ingredient is used in a lot
of OTC medications. I find the natural oil works better with less side effects.
