TEA TREE IN SKIN CARE

Treats acne: Tea tree is one of the most commonly used home remedy for acne breakouts. Just as effective as benzoyl peroxide, Tea tree helps in unclogging pores and stopping bacterial growth on skin.

Eliminate body odour: Antimicrobial properties help to destroy bacteria on the skin that may cause body odour. By adding tea tree oil into coconut oil and baking soda mix, you can create your own tea tree deodorant.

  • How to use for face care
    Add one drop of essential oil to one dollop of your face cream or lotion and apply every two days. Do not be tempted to add more oil. Higher doses do not work better than regular applications.
