Tips and uses:
1. Acne Remedy
Considered one of the most effective home remedies for acne, a study found tea tree oil to be just as effective as benzoyl peroxide, but without the associated negative side effects that many people experience including red, dried and peeling skin. Make a homemade gentle tea tree oil acne face wash by mixing 5 drops of pure tea tree essential oil with two teaspoons of raw honey. Simply rub on your face, leave on for one minute, then rinse off.
2. Treatment for eczema and psoriasis
Tea tree oil can help relieve any type of skin inflammation, including being used as a natural eczema treatment and for reducing psoriasis. Simply mix 1 teaspoon coconut oil, 5 drops of tea tree oil and 5 drops of lavender oil to make homemade tea tree oil eczema lotion or body soap.
3. Excellent home cleaner
Tea tree oil has powerful antimicrobial properties and can kill off bad bacteria in your home. Mix with water, vinegar, tea tree oil and lemon essential oil then use it on your counter tops, kitchen appliances, shower, toilet and sinks.
4. Treatment for wounds and cuts
Tea tree oil mixed with lavender essential oil is the perfect mix for wound ointment. Make sure to clean a cut first with water, then put on tea tree oil and cover with a bandage to help fight off infections.
