I don't know a lot about their products, but my MIL loves them at least for bath, body, and cleaning products. Nearly every soap and lotion she has in the house is one of their products. The problem for my husband is that he is VERY allergic to tea tree oil and it seems to be in just about everything the make (at least that his mom buys). He used some handsoap at her house, and his hands got all red and itchy, and when he walked barefoot on her hardwood floor, his feet started to burn.

I've been a preferred customer with Melaleuca for over 5 years. I tried my hand at building a business, but nothing much came of it. However, I love their products and still buy the required 35 product points per month to remain a preferred customer. I mainly use their vitamins, cleaning products, and bath stuff. Their Renew lotion is awesome!! It help keeps my psoriasis in check.

I used to sell it when I lived in Hawaii - it was a long time ago, probably about 1995 or 1996. I remember I really liked the products, but they were rather expensive and at the time my budget didn't really support purchasing them on a continual, ongoing basis.

I used to be a preferred customer with Melaleuca...I do love their products no harmful chemicals but did not like having to buy certain amount of products each month. I bought so much of some of their products that over a year later I still have quite a bit of some of their cleaning solutions.

I used to be a preferred customer also. I love the products but with just me and DH I was stockpiling to meet the point minimum every month so I let it go.

Bargoo- it is a company very similar to Amway. They make products from the oil of the Melaleuca tree, also known as tea tree oil. A lot of it is all natural and biodegradable. It is extremely helpful in healing cuts and burns and soothing aches and pains. I cut a huge chunk of skin off the top of one of my fingers a while back and all I used on it was the Melaleuca ointment and oil and it healed faster than anything and barely left a scar.

Believe it or not, even out here in podunkville, Meleluca was founded in a town 30 miles from me. The owner, Frank Vandersloot, owns all kinds of stuff around here. Many of my daycare moms and relatives work for him. Their products are fantastic.
