Why is Tea Tree essential oil so popular?
The use of Tea Tree oil originated in Australia where, for centuries, the Aborigines used the oil from the leaves medicinally. Now we use the oil that has been extracted from the leaves, thus it is handy and widely available.
Studies have shown that Tea Tree oil may be helpful for many ailments, so here are some.
Athlete’s foot – use a cream with the oil in it twice daily. Tea Tree Intense Moisturizer
Acne – apply cream lightly daily. Lemongrass Tea Tree Hand & Body Lotion
Hand Sanitizer – Some studies have shown Tea Tree oil to be antibacterial which makes it great to use in a natural hand sanitizer. We do! All Natural Hand Sanitizer
Insect Bites and minor scrapes. Again, apply a lotion or cream as needed. Tea Tree Intense Moisturizer
