A few weeks back I wrote a blog post on a few essential oils that are good for your skin and I briefly mentioned tea tree oil.
Tea tree oil is by far my most beloved and most used essential oil and is the one that I have also been using the longest out of any essential oils.
I believe whole heartedly in this oil’s ability to help everyone’s skin in some way which is why I decided to write a more in-depth post on its benefits.
Acne | Tea tree oil is both antibacterial and antifungal which makes it a wonderful option for those who suffer from mild to sever acne.
It is much more moisturizing than most acne treatments while also being drying enough to nip problematic acne in the bud.
Tea tree oil will even help you with the scars that acne leaves behind which makes it a wonderful, all in one product for acne sufferers who don’t want to be left with yet another skin care problem to conquer.
Anti-Inflammatory | If you have problems with sensitive skin or skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis than tea tree oil is a good skin care option for you as well.
It’s anti-inflammatory properties makes it a fast healing oil for skin conditions that create itching or irritation. It even works to heal cuts and mild infections.
Tea tree oil works to quickly reduce any redness and irritation as well as to quickly heal any growing pimples or blemishes. For these reasons, many people use tea tree oil as a spot treatment.
Hair | Not only is tea tree oil beneficial for skin but it also has many positive hair qualities.
It works to unclog hair follicles which allows for faster and thicker hair growth as well as eliminating dandruff and an irritated and itchy scalp. It even acts as a solution for removing lice.
As with all other essential oils, it is important to exercise precaution when using tea tree oil since it is highly concentrated and could cause irritation.
Tea tree oil is also considered toxic if taken internally so always keep it away from your mouth and eyes and do a patch test on your skin to eliminate the possibility of any kind of irritation or allergic reaction.
