This is a must have for your essential oil first aid kit! Organic Tea Tree is one of the world’s best known and beloved essential oils. Native to Australia, it is commonly applied around the world for a multitude of uses. It is known to have remarkable effects on irritated skin by helping to ease redness and restore smoothness. Other popular uses include helping to combat skin blemishes and soothing skin that has been overexposed in the sun. Its refreshing green, medicinal, woody aroma makes it a wonderful addition to natural home-cleaning sprays, especially in steamy, musty areas like the bathroom. When diffused, it helps support a healthy immune system and can eliminate unpleasant odors.
Directions: Diffuse Organic Tea Tree alone or with a floral essential oil like Jasmine Absolute or Lavender to refresh a stale or musty room. For an all-natural surface cleaner, dilute Organic Tea Tree to 2% with vinegar. Create a skin-soothing salve by blending 9 drops of Organic Tea Tree, Organic Lavender, and 9 drops of Organic Lemon with 2 tbsp of your favorite carrier oil and apply to the areas of concern. For skin blemishes, dilute to 5% and apply directly to the blemish.
