Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil
Tea tree oil makes an ideal natural hand sanitizer.
Studies have shown that it kills several common bacteria and viruses responsible for causing illness, including E. coli, S. pneumoniae and H. influenzae
Moreover, a study testing several types of hand wash shows that adding tea tree oil to the cleansers boosted their effectiveness against E. coli
Tea tree oil can be used to treat and disinfect minor cuts and abrasions by killing S. aureus and other bacteria that can cause infection in open wounds
Tea tree oil should not be ingested because it may be toxic if swallowed.
In addition to preventing infection in cuts and abrasions, tea tree oil may also encourage wound healing.
In a small study of 10 people with wounds, adding tea tree oil to conventional wound treatment led to decreased healing time in all but one participant
A few drops of tea tree oil can be added to wound dressing each time a new dressing is applied.
Tea tree oil can be a powerful weapon against acne. Several studies have shown that it helps reduce the amount and overall severity of acne.
In one study, applying a 5% tea tree gel to acne lesions was shown to be more than three times as effective at reducing the number of lesions than a placebo. It was nearly six times as effective in reducing severity
Alternatively, you can make your own acne treatment by mixing one part tea tree oil with nine parts water and applying the mixture to affected areas with a cotton swab once or twice a day, as needed.
Research has shown that tea tree oil helps reduce inflammation and triggers the activity of white blood cells that are instrumental in the healing process
Tea tree oil contains a number of healing active compounds, including limonene, linalool, cineole, terpinen-4-ol and more. Terpinen-4-ol in particular has been documented to destroy microbes and fungi, making tea tree oil a powerful antibacterial and antifungal.
Perhaps one of the most popular and widely used essential oils ever, tea tree essential oil is a powerful immune system stimulant and has antiseptic, antifungal and antioxidant properties. Tea tree essential oil can be used to fight respiratory dysfunction, skin infections and to stimulate and regenerate hair follicles.
The pungent, warm and somewhat spicy aroma is best used to purify a location and to cleanse and renew the mind and body. Extracted via steam distillation using the needle-like leaves and heads of the yellow or purplish flowers, tea tree essential oil is very pale in color with a watery viscosity.
Said to ease mental stress and relieve emotional pain, tea tree essential oil is great for cleaning and purifying wounds and infections and treating fatigue and muscle pain.
This pure essential oil is certified 100% organic.
