5 Uses For Tea Tree Oil

In case you hadn’t noticed, we’ve got not one, but TWO oils on sale this month from Thursday Plantation! Earlier this June, we listed off all of the wonderful benefits of Eucalyptus Oil (which you can find here https://ambrosia.ca/blog/2016/06/02/5-uses-for-eucalyptus-oil/ ), so we thought it was only fair to share 5 uses for tea tree oil as well!!!

Tea Tree Oil – Used 5 Ways!!!

Tea Tree oil is one of the more well known and commonly used oils out there! Some completely swear by this oil, utilizing it for literally anything and everything under the sun – think Constantine’s level of obsession with Windex’s “healing properties” in My Big Fat Greek Wedding & you’re on the right track!

However, I wanted to narrow down the scope a bit so that you can get the absolute most out of this incredibly versatile oil!! Here are some of the top 5 uses for Tea Tree Oil! Enjoy!

  1. Facemasks For Acne

One of the absolute MOST common uses for tea tree oil is to help soothe or ease complaints of acne. Mixing tea tree oil with honey, water, other essential oils or avocado can make for quite the effective antiseptic face wash or mask!!!

  1. Dandruff

Step aside “Head & Shoulders”, hellooooo tea tree oil! Tea tree oil is quite infamous for its ability to soothe dry, flaky skin and remove dandruff!! Use a few drops of the oil in your shampoo! Side-note: to make this extra effective, try adding a bit of coconut oil as well!

  1. Toothpaste

I’m sure that you’ve seen the many tea tree flavoured toothpaste lining the shelves here at Ambrosia! And for good reason, tea tree oil has various antimicrobial properties that qualify it as being a pretty great toothpaste ingredient!! If you don’t already have tea tree toothpaste, try mixing the oil with coconut oil as a DIY, all natural mouthwash!

  1. Makeup Remover & Toner

Mix coconut oil with tea tree oil for an effective, skin soothing makeup remover.. sans all of the toxic chemicals!!!  It’s both moisturizing AND cleansing! The perfect combo!

  1. Soften Dry Cuticles

Tea tree oil helps in the antimicrobial and “fungus-fighting” department, while lavender is naturally anti-inflammatory… making for the most perfect cuticle softener!! Mix these two oils together with olive oil and you’ve got your very own, DIY cuticle softener!!!
