An ode to Tea Tree

teatree400

This was the second oil that I fell in love with. Lavender being the first and Valor being the third. My dandruff led me to the little miracle antifungal essential oil, tea tree. This oil is derived from the leaves of the tea tree (obviously) and is used as an antifungal. The benefits are unbelievable, hence the reason I decided to write up a whole article on it. Check it out guys.

Dandruff: Add to shampoo. I struggle with this bad in the winter.

Hair growth: Helps to unclog hair follicles and nourish your roots. A healthy scalp promotes hair growth.

Acne: Add to face moisturizer or use directly. I apple directly to my pimps. Tea tree is known to heal acne scars as well.

Dry skin (eczema): Tea tree has been shown to be more effective than zinc oxide and clobetasone butyrate creams in treating eczema.

Infections, cuts and wounds: Apply directly with a carrier oil to the wound. Since this is an anti inflammatory, it should help prevent any infection and reduce scarring.

Red blotches: My coworker gets these and she swears by the thieves and the tea tree combo.

Lice: Add to hair products as a preventative or apply directly to rid those little buggers.

Vaginal infections: Add to coconut oil and apply around the area (you know what area I’m talking about, don’t make me say it). If you get chronic yeast infection,s I would apply every other day.

Toothache: Apply directly to the tooth! Swear. That and copaiba which comes in your starter kit. Another crowd fav.

Sore throat: Gargle, throat spray, topically. Do what you gotta do to survive man.

Ear infections: rub it around the ear. You could even dab some on a cotton ball and lay on ear. Not kidding, it’s like a miracle for adults and children. I add some purification to it as well.

Congestion + cough: Add it to a steam bath or place head over steaming pot that contains tea tree and eucalyptus.

Athletes foot: Gotta thank Jerry for this. He made himself a little concoction and it works wonders.

 

Let me know all the way in which you use your tea tree pleaseeeee 🙂
