Amazing Uses For Tea Tree Oil

Many healers and doctors say Tea Tree Oil is like a “medicine cabinet in a bottle” – and that’s because it’s true – it really is! This wonder oil is super-effective in fighting bacteria, fungi and viruses, and can give your immune system a serious boost. Here are some top ways to use it for your health.



Tea Tree Oil is great for your skin, hence how commonly it’s used in a number of different skincare products from cleansers to toners. To treat acne, simply dab a small amount of the oil on the affected area using a clean cotton wool. Don’t rinse it off afterwards.

Cuts And Burns

To treat a nasty cut or burn naturally, simply rub tea tree oil into the affected area (gently) using your fingertips. Make sure your hands are clean. It might sting a little at first but the burning sensation will wear off quickly.

Colds And Flu

Tea Tree Oil has amazing anti-viral properties, and can help alleviate symptoms of colds and flu. Simply add about 10 drops of the oil to warm to hot bathwater before you climb into the tub.

Chest Congestion

A quick and easy way to relieve a tight, congested chest in winter is to add a few drops of Tea Tree Oil to a vaporiser. The oil will assist in loosening your chest up quickly.

Dry Scalp

Suffering from seasonal dry scalp? Simply add a small amount of tea tree oil to your shampoo to soothe and hydrate your flaky scalp in no time. According to some research, the oil can even help get rid of dandruff and destroy head lice.
