Tea Tree Essential Oil can be blended with Marjoram, Lavender and Eucalyptus.
The leaves of the Tea Tree (Maleleuca alternifolia) have been used by the Aboriginal peoples of Australia for centuries. They would apply crushed leaves directly to the skin for a cooling effect. Tea Tree oil is best known for its strong antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties. Tea tree oil is commonly used to treat acne, athlete's foot, lice, nail fungus and insect bites. It can be used to cleanse and purify the skin and nails. Diffusing Tea Tree essential oil will help purify and freshen the air.
- Combine 1–2 drops with your facial cleanser for added cleansing properties and acne treatment, or apply to skin after shaving (dilute with carrier oil)
- Combine 2 drops of Tea Tree oil with 4 drops of carrier oil and apply to toenails and feet after showering for fungus.
