Tea Tree Oil Uses

Hi guys:

I honestly do not know where to begin with this post because there are just so many uses of tea tree oil. So first of all, I wanted to tell you all there are 3 ways of using tea tree oil; for beauty, for health, & for the household. Just to give you a little knowledge about tea tree oil, it is an antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antiseptic, & decongestant oil. You could find tea tree oil at any drugstore (I bought my bottle from Trader Joe’s).

For Beauty:
-Disinfect makeup brushes {add 1-2 drops to a mild cleanser}
-Acne {dab on spots or mix with carrier oil as a nighttime moisturizer & acne treatment}
-Unclogs pores
-Controls oil production
For Health:
-Sunburns, Burns, Bruises
-Bug bites
-Wounds, cuts, scratches, cold sores
-Sore throat {gargle tea tree oil diluted with water}
-Stuffy nose {add a few drops to your vaporizer}
For Household:
-Disinfect remotes, doorknobs, phones
-Add to wash cycle for towels or bathroom rugs
-Prevents moths from eating clothes {1 or 2 cotton balls soaked in the oil stored in closet}

***all the uses for oil can either be diluted with water or at full strength or diluted in a carrier oil***

P.S. using the oil at full strength may cause swelling or irritation of the skin
