The Benefits of Tea Tree Oil and Diy Beauty Recipes




In the past I’ve given you a glimpse into my beauty regimen. I’ve shared with you my love of DIY beauty treatments and all natural tips and tricks. Today I want to share with you some of the many benefits of Tea Tree oil and a few DIY beauty recipes.

The first use of Melaleuca Alterniolia aka Tea Tree oil was said to be a medicinal ingredient used by the Aboriginal Australians in New South Wales. Research shows the oil contains antiseptic properties that fight bacteria. As word spread about all of the health benefits the oil had to offer more and more people began to use it.

I personally was first introduced to Tea Tree oil back during my days in Beauty school. Needless to say I’ve been using it in my beauty regimen for years. The kind that I’m currently using is Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil.

Things it can treat…
Acne
Eczema
Sun Burn
Dry Skin/Dandruff
Scars
And many, many more

Recipes
Cleansing Tea Tree Oil Face Mask
2 tbsp. green or red clay powder
4tbsp. Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree oil
Water

Mix all of the ingredients into a thick paste. Apply to a wet or dry face. Wait 15 to 20 mins then rinse clean with warm water.

Refreshing Facial Toner
¼ cup natural witch hazel
7 drops tea tree oil
1 cup room temp green tea
3 drops jasmine essential oil

Make the cup of green tea by pouring hot water over tea bags. Steep tea
until it has cooled to room temperature then discard bags. Add witch hazel to tea and then pour into a storage bottle with sealable lid. Add in oils and shake well to blend.
Apply to face and neck with a cotton ball.

Exfoliating Sweet Banana Scrub
1 overripe banana
1/3 cup stone ground oats
¼ tsp. tea tree oil
1 tbsp. sesame oil

Mash banana with a fork until no longer lumpy. Add in oats and oils then
blend. Rub on face, neck or body to remove dry or dead skin. Rinse with warm water.


If you decide to try any of these recipes I recommend using oil from Apothecary Extracts. A 4oz bottle can be purchased on Amazon along with a free ebook “53 Uses for Tea Tree Oil”.
