Benefits of Tea Tree

Well known for its natural antibacterial properties, Tea Tree has long been used in natural medicinal treatments, insect repellents and even nit treatments. But Tea Tree actually has so many more uses, from natural cleaning to everyday skin care, so I've put together this guide to the benefits of Tea Tree.

When we think of how to kill bacteria, harsh cleaning agents often come to mind, but did you know that natural Tea Tree can be just as powerful? This incredible botanical ingredient is actually native to Australia and has long been used in natural medicine. It's one of my favourite tools for banishing unwanted bacteria as it can be used in anything from cleaning products to natural skin care.

Tea Tree uses

Derived from Australian native Tea Tree leaves, Tea Tree Oil is a powerful antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiseptic natural ingredient which can be used in almost anything that requires fighting off bacteria. In natural skin care, it's ideal for anyone with particularly oily or acne prone skin as it can help to stop the growth of acne-causing bacteria, balance oil production and calm irritated skin. You will also often find it in home cleaning products as it is particularly useful for removing kitchen and bathroom bacteria and leaving surfaces fresh and clean. Insects, bugs and creepy crawlies are also repelled by the smell of Tea Tree, which is why it is commonly found in natural insect repellents and head lice treatments.

Natural Tea Tree skin care

100% Pure Tea Tree & Willow Clarifying Cleanser
If you are prone to hormonal acne, I recommend the 100% Pure Tea Tree & Willow Clarifying Cleanser for daily use to help refresh congested pores. Rather than drying out the skin, this liquid cleanser helps to unclog pores and soothe hormonal breakouts while restoring moisture and softness to the complexion.

100% Pure Tea Tree & Willow Clarifying Astringent
Ideal 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 to soothe, calm hydrate and tone skin, and works to balance oil production to help ensure that pores aren't clogged up with acne-causing oils.

ECO. Pimple Clear
An effective spot treatment, the ECO. Pimple Clear actually contains a potent mix of only Tea Tree and Lavender so their antibacterial properties are at their most powerful, working to heal spots and calm the skin so it can begin its natural healing process.

100% Pure Lysine Lip Balm
Thanks to its anti-viral properties, Tea Tree can work wonders for your lips as well. I love the 100% Pure Lysine Lip Balm, which uses Coconut Oil, Tea Tree, Lysine, Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Lemon Balm to help clear up cold sores and prevent further irritation by providing soothing moisture and antibacterial relief. Apply directly to the affected area or all over lips as often as needed.

Natural Tea Tree body care

ECO. AROMA Pure Tea Tree
If you want to enjoy the benefits of Tea Tree oil in its purest form, opt for the ECO. AROMA Pure Tea Tree. This is the perfect oil to have on hand in the medicine cabinet to apply to skin infections or irritations and use around the home for cleaning, deodorising and repelling insects.

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 reduce the growth of cavity-causing bacteria, soothe inflamed gums and freshen breath.

Badger Foot Balm
Combining Tea Tree with nourishing Olive Oil, Beeswax and refreshing Peppermint, the Badger Foot Balm is a Certified Organic formula designed to help heal 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.

Dr Bronner's Pure-Castile Liquid Soap
You know how much I love a good multi-tasker, and there are few greater than the Dr Bronner's Pure-Castile Liquid Soap. You can use this for the skin, the body and the home, so your entire family can enjoy the antiseptic benefits of Tea Tree. This scent is particularly good as a shampoo if you are prone to dandruff or flakiness. This soap has a whopping 18 uses, read all about them here!
