About the Tea tree oil
Using Tea tree oil in order to maintain your skin and hair and a proper condition seem to be the latest trend. The cosmetic industry had to adjust to customers’ desires and this is the reason why, you can find these days a multitude of creams, moisturizers, lotions, shampoos and conditioners enriched with natural oils.
In the following rows of this article I will talk about certain oil used in all the things enumerated above and which has great properties.
I am talking about the Tea tree oil. I am sure you have heard of it but maybe you want to know more related to its utility and properties.
Tea tree oil generalities
Tea Tree oil is manufactured from a tree called melaleuca alternifolia which can be found in Australia. No one knows it by this name. The popular name used by everyone is tea tree even if fro its leaves no one is making real tea.
Instead it was used since the oldest times for medical purposes. It seems that in the past it was popular for its healing properties when it comes about skin issues and colds.
The tea tree oil is a safe product that can be used diluted or not, or as a component of beauty treatments, according with the purpose for which you are using it. It is quite effective when it comes about funguses, due to its natural ingredients.
Besides its antibacterial it many other properties that makes it a great ingredient for many products strongly related to the cosmetic industry.
A great odors solution
All people or at least most people use deodorants. No matter how much we maintain our bodies clean it is perfectly natural to sweat. The problem emerges when the odors interfere.
The regular deodorants are not always the best solution if you search for the healthiest solution. We all learned by now that the inhibition of your sweat glands is the worst idea possible.
You can do something to avoid awkward moments but still not use a classic deodorant just by using tea tree oil instead. Nothing could be safer than that and you will be amazed of its effectiveness.
Make insects to go away
I was surprised to find out that tea tree oil is very effective to scare insects. If you look at most all the mosquitoes’ repellents found on the pharmacies shelves have tea tree oil among their ingredients.
I also found a natural repellent against moths and one of the ingredients was tea tree oil. I tried it and it was quite effective indeed.
A great sanitizer
In the last years, many people started using sanitizers instead of water and soap. I am not a fan of these sanitizers but they could replace water and soap when you really need it.
If you look at these products’ labels, you will see that most of them contain tea tree oil. It is able to eliminate bacteria that could cause serious illnesses such as E. coli.
It wasn’t used from the beginning, but once the manufacturers remembered the properties of this miraculous product they included in theirs. The effect was quickly seen.
A savior for cuts
Considering all the things written above, you can imagine that the tea tree oil is very effective when you use it to tread accidental cuts or scratches. I already mentioned from the beginning of this article that it has a great and positive impact on your skin and it is able to heal superficial wounds.
Besides healing it, it is also able to prevent the appearance of various infections caused by external bacteria that might get in contact with your skin.
Some people prefer to use it in its raw state, namely not diluted. Other people mix the tea tree oil with other oils to enhance its efficiency.
