Tea Tree Essential Oil - Description
The Tea Tree is a small shrub with needle-like leaves that is native to Australia. Tea Tree Essential Oil has been in use by the people of Australia for a long time. Historically, tea was made from its leaves first, and that is how it was named.
In recent days, Tea Tree Essential Oil uses are versatile. In different homemade remedies or even in commercial-grade products, its uses are extensive. Thanks to its germ-killing effects, it is widely used in skincare products and hair care products.
Moreover, it has been in use by people to disinfect and treat minor cuts or scratches for ages. Tea Tree Essential Oil is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties, which may help in healing wounds. It may also ease irritations that cause due to Psoriasis, a condition where the skin gets red, scaly, and itchy.
Tea Tree Essential Oil Uses
When using tea tree oil for face, it can be used directly after dilution. Just never use more than three drops at once. Wounds can be disinfected using 2-3 drops in the affected area.
For aromatherapy, 4-5 drops can be added to the diffuser or vaporizer.
