Benefits of Tea Tree Oil
Well known for its natural antibacterial properties, Tea Tree Oil has long been used in natural medicinal treatments, insect repellents and even nit treatments - but Australian Tea Tree actually has so many more 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 kill 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 medicine. It's one of my favourite tools for banishing unwanted bacteria, as Tea Tree Oil uses range from cleaning products to natural skin care.
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 almost anything that requires fighting off bacteria. In natural skin care, Tea Tree is ideal for anyone with particularly oily or acne prone skin as it can help to stop the growth of blemish-causing bacteria, balance 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.
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.
Tea Tree Oil for skin
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 Tea Tree Oil infused liquid cleanser may help 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 which may help 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 Oil and Lavender so their antibacterial properties are at their most powerful, working to help heal pimples 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 Oil can also work wonders for your lips. I love the 100% Pure Lysine Lip Balm, which uses Coconut Oil, Tea Tree, Lysine, Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Lemon Balm.
Natural Tea Tree body care
ECO. AROMA Pure Tea Tree
If you want Tea Tree Oil benefits in their 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 irritations and use around the home for cleaning and deodorising. YOu can even add a few drops to your washing!
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.
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 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 oily roots. www.nourishedlife.com.au/article/237301/18-ways-use-dr-bronners-18.html[The Dr Bronner's soap has a whopping 18 uses}
