Any one ever heard of Melaleuca Products?

It is a home based business and I was thinking about getting involved in and was wondering if anyone else ever has or knows anything about it. Please share both good and bad experiences with me.

  • My day care provider SOLELY uses melaleuca products. There are a TON of different things, IDK much about it, but she asked me if she could use them on my DD when she got rashes, etc and I told her as long as it works! It does work miracles though!

  • Yes. The products are great but soooooo expensive and hard to shope for because it's all through a private seller.

  • Yes, the products are good but very expensive. Very hard to sell because of the cost. There are many other products that are more cost effective.

  • I've only heard it's hard to sell just as the others have pointed out. Plus if people haven't heard of the products they may be less likley to buy them. There are tons of other business ops out there you could look into. I had to search for months before I found what I was looking for(of what was right for me I should say)
    Good luck!

  • They are overpriced and not nearly as non-toxic as they claim.

    This Is what we use for most cleaning (initially used as part of my daughter's 6th grade science fair project). It is cheap (my favorite) and non-toxic.
    1/4 cup white vinegar
    3/4 cup warm tap water
    1 tablespoon baking soda
    10 drops of tea tree oil (antibacterial, antifungal, etc.)
    2 drops oil of lavender essential oil (optional) (antiseptic and smells nice)
    For extra scrubbing, I make a paste with salt, baking soda and vinegar.

  • We don't have to sell the products. That's what is so great about Melaleuca. We set up memberships like a Sam's or Costco. Their products are amazing!!! The pricing is better than other eco-friendly products sold in stores. There are many benefits of being part of Melaleuca. Discounts to online shopping is just one of them!!!!!
