There’s a reason why we dedicated blog posts to just talking about Tea Tree essential oil: it is really popular and beneficial for the mind and body in a number of ways. It is an excellent antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent, highly effective deodorizer, mood uplifter, and household cleaner. Below are three ways you can use Tea Tree essential oil every day:
You can disperse Tea Tree oil in the air by using a diffuser, which is an electronic device used to release oils into the air. Diffusing Tea Tree essential oil can be an invigorating experience for both mind and body, purifying the air and killing off microbes that cause colds and the flu. You can also add a few drops of Tea Tree essential oil in a diffuser or cotton ball and inhale the aroma for treating certain respiratory issues.
Apply Tea Tree essential oil on the skin to treat harsh acne and acne scars. Make sure to dilute with a carrier oil first for safe application on the skin. Tea Tree essential oil fights against red, inflamed skin by soothing irritation and itchiness. It can also be applied to scars and wounds to decrease the time it takes to heal.
Deodorizer and all-purpose cleaner
Tea Tree essential oil is a critical ingredient in natural deodorant due to its powerful antibacterial and deodorizing qualities. You can also add a few drops of this oil to cleaning solutions to naturally cleanse your space and destroy bacteria, especially in your home gym and yoga studio.
