There are tons of different essential oils out there to choose from, be it for aroma therapy or DIY house cleaning products, there’s always something for you. I once reviewed how I love coconut oil and what I use it for (which you can check out here) this time, I will be reviewing, this essential oil that’s really useful and comes in handy for someone like me who doesn’t really like reaching out for medicine.
Tea tree oil benefits :
- Treatment for acnes, fungal infection, athlete’s foot, bad breath, head lice, dandruff and other skin problems
- Insect repellent
- Anti-microbial laundry freshener
- Acne face wash
- Natural deodorant
(And among other benefits, which I’m not going to enumerate further).
I personally like tea tree oil for treating pimples, yes it does dries out your skin a little bit, but honestly this doesn’t really bother me. Nothing that a moisturizer can’t solve. I have also tried soothing itchiness from mosquito bites with this, oh and soothing nausea! It works wonderfully.
Be aware though that this is an essential oil, it is safe when used as topical treatment for skin problems but unsafe when taken orally, undiluted (though I don’t really advise you to ingest it even when it’s diluted ..).
Do you like essential oils? Which ones are your favorite?
