Tea Tree Rub for Inflammation, Pain and Carpel Tunnel

One of the wonderful things about having an autoimmune disorder is when your body decides that a particular part of your body is carrying or is a virus.
The last two days my body has decided my hands were the enemy and have set out to kill them. It's been fun. I look like I'm wearing oven mitts. Typing is not fun so I will make this short and sweet.
I dug out my favorite Encyclopedias of Alternative Therapy and found a wonderful reciepe that I thought I would share with everyone. I know a lot of  people suffer from Carpel tunnel, this is said to be wonderful for that as well.
This maybe an old, known remedy for some or all but it is new to me.

Mix 18 drops of pure Tea Tree Oil to 1/8th cup of almond oil.
Shake and rub on inflicted sites two to four times a day.
May be massaged into the wrists for carpel tunnel.
Tea Tree oil has many medicinal properties that I may get into later, right now I am going to rub some on my oven mitts of hands and enjoy.
