Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is perhaps one of the best mange treatment solutions to stop intense itching immediately for pets, but not for cats. Tea tree oil is completely safe to use on the skin, yet it’s nearly five times stronger than a household-strength detergent. Pick up a bottle of tea tree oil in your local health food store and apply undiluted to the affected skin areas to stop the itch ravaged by mange, ringworm, hotspots, dermatitis or even just dandruff. Always use caution to not use too much Tea tree oil on the skin, as Tea tree oil could burn the skin and potentially toxic if your pets immune system is not strong enough to handle the tea tree oil on its skin.

Tea Tree Oil is toxic for cats

Dilute Tea tree oil for small pets; however please note that you never want to use Tea Tree Oil on Cats.

Tea tree oil, or melaleuca oil, is a pale yellow colour to nearly clear essential oil with a fresh camphoraceous odor.[1] It is taken from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia, which is native to the northeast coast of New South Wales, Australia. Tea tree oil should not be confused with tea oil, the sweet seasoning and cooking oil from pressed seeds of the tea plant Camellia sinensis (beverage tea), or the tea oil plant Camellia oleifera.
