Tea Tree: the Multitasker
This traditional Australian remedy keeps things fresh and clean no matter where you are! A must have for natural skin care, natural cleaning and natural odor control.
Organic Cleaning: For an easy, economical scrub, sprinkle baking soda in your tub/sink and add 5-10 drops of Tea Tree. Optional: add a few drops of sunny citrus essential oils.
Happy Feet: Apply a few drops of Tea Tree on flip-flops before using a public shower. Sprinkle smelly shoes, bags and sports equipment with Tea Tree to kill the stink!
Clear Skin: Use a few drops of Tea Tree on blemish prone areas, or blend with your daily moisturizer to maintain clear skin.
Did you know? Niaouli (Melaleuca quinquenervia) is a close relative of Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) and is often used for similar health purposes. The difference is that Tea Tree (composed mainly of monoterpenols and monoterpenes) works to cool and revive, while Niaouli (predominantly 1,8 cineole) works to stimulate. Combined, their synergistic force is superb for immune support - try a couple drops of each in a diffuser or vapor rub next time you feel under the weather.
