Well known for its natural antibacterial properties, Tea Tree Oil has long been used in natural skin care products. Australian Tea Tree oil has so many uses, from natural cleaning to everyday skin care, so I've put together this guide to Tea Tree Oil benefits.
When we think of how to remove bacteria, harsh cleaning agents often come to mind, but did you know that natural Tea Tree Oil can be just as powerful? This incredible botanical ingredient is actually native to Australia and has long been used in natural remedies. It's one of my favourite tools for cleaning as Tea Tree Oil uses range from house hold cleaning products to cleansers in natural skin care products.
Tea Tree Oil uses
Derived from Australian Tea Tree leaves, Tea Tree Oil is a powerful antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiseptic natural ingredient which can be used in many ways. In natural skin care, Tea Tree is ideal for anyone with particularly oily or acne prone skin as it can help balance out oil production and calm irritated skin. Whether in a face wash or topical pimple treatment, antibacterial Tea Tree Oil benefits allow a natural alternative to harsh cleaners.
Tea Tree Oil in skincare
100% Pure Tea Tree & Willow Clarifying Cleanser
If you are prone to breakouts, you can try the 100% Pure Tea Tree & Willow Clarifying Cleanser for daily use to help clean congested pores. Rather than drying out the skin, this Tea Tree Oil infused liquid cleanser is designed to remove dirt and grease from the skin while restoring moisture and softness to the complexion.
100% Pure Tea Tree & Willow Clarifying Astringent
An ideal companion for use after cleansing, the 100% Pure Tea Tree & Willow Clarifying Astringent combines antibacterial Tea Tree with Willow Bark Extract, Witch Hazel, Turmeric and Rosemary which may help soothe, calm, hydrate and tone skin, and it also works to balance oil production and to help keep pores clear.
ECO. Pimple Clear
Designed as a spot treatment, the ECO. Pimple Clear actually contains a potent mix of only Tea Tree Oil and Lavender so their antibacterial properties are at their most powerful, they work together to target pimples and help clear them up.
Natural Tea Tree body care
ECO. AROMA Pure Tea Tree
If you want Tea Tree Oil benefits in their purest form, you can opt for the ECO. AROMA Pure Tea Tree. This is the ideal oil to have on hand in the medicine cabinet, in your bathroom and in your laundry to use on your skin or to use around the home for cleaning and deodorising. You can even add a few drops to your washing!
100% Pure Lysine Lip Balm
Tea Tree Oil can also work wonders for your lips when combined with Lysine. I love the 100% Pure Lysine Lip Balm, which uses Coconut Oil, Tea Tree, Lysine, Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Lemon Balm.
Badger Foot Balm
Combining Tea Tree Oil with nourishing Olive Oil, Beeswax and refreshing Peppermint, the Badger Foot Balm is a Certified Organic formula designed to hydrate and soothe overworked feet. Cooling and rejuvenating, this creamy balm is perfect for keeping cracked and sore feet hydrated while also helping to inhibit foot odour.
Tea Tree Oil in toothpaste
Grants Fresh Mint with Tea Tree Oil Toothpaste
Tea Tree is also an amazing ingredient in natural dental care! I love the Grants Fresh Mint with Tea Tree Oil Toothpaste as the minty taste is as good as any supermarket brand toothpaste but the inclusion of Tea Tree Oil makes it naturally powerful in helping to clean teeth, gums and freshen breath.
You will also often find Tea Tree in home cleaning products as it is particularly useful for removing kitchen and bathroom bacteria and leaving surfaces fresh and clean.
