The natives of Australia already found the benefits of tea tree. They would breath in the purifying scent in the morning. They also used the leaves to cool down their skin. Now the health benefits of tea tree have spread around the world. Tea tree also boosts the immune system.
I use tea tree oil (doTerra’s Meleleuca) during summer time for any skin irritations. I use it for small cuts, bug bites and sun irritation for me and my three year old. I have ready made blend of tea tree oil and coconut oil in my bag. You can mix two drops of tea tree essential oil to any carrier oil. doTerra carries ready made roller bottles of tea tree and coconut oil that are super handy on the go (“Touch” line).
Tea tree oil helps to clear oily and sweaty skin. You can add two drops to your skin care product and make up remover (don’t use coconut oil to oily or acne skin).
Tea tree oil can be used for cuticles (hand and feet). It helps to cure athlete’s foot and nail fungus. You can add a drop to your shampoo to make your hair healthier and stronger.
