Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is truly a gift from God!  Natures number one antiseptic in my book!  It has tremendous anti-viral and anti-fungal properties, leading to so different healing benefits.. here are a few:
Treats Acne by drawing moisture to the surface and killing bacteria at the same time.
Natural Toner and antiseptic.
Treats Warts, dandruff, ring worm, athletes foot, and helps soften corns.
Soothes Cuts, Scrapes, and Insect bites.
Anti-viral and anti-candida.
Natural Pain reliever.
Can help lower blood pressure.
Helpful for infections including vaginitis, sinusitis, cystitis.
May help reduce fevers and end headaches.

When using Tea tree essential oil directly on to your skin, make sure to dilute it with water.  It is very potent and you do not need a lot for it to be completely effective!  This is easy to do with a Q'tip by dipping the cotton in the oil and the dipping it right in to water and applying directly to infected or blemished area.  If needed for a larger area, or for often use, you can mix a tablespoon tea tree to two tablespoons water and keep in in an air tight container in your medicine cabinet.  A few more fun tea tree tips are... Add 5-7 drops to a full bath for a healing and soothing soak.  You can also add about 5-7 drops to a diffuser add a bit of water and let the aroma-therapy work wonder for your health while giving the whole house a pure and clean feel and smell! You can also add some to water and vinegar for a eco-friendly safe household cleaner!  Any questions.. please comment below!
