Take Me To Post Comment Form

The bodily benefits of tea tree oil is not a secret. A choice ingredient in many healthcare and beauty products, tea tree oil boasts of a multitude of amazing properties that have been known to cure acne, relieve dry scalp, moisturize flaky skin, and alleviate dandruff, among others. It was the native aborigines of Australia who first harvested tea tree for its oil, and up to today the wonder substance is still the popular ointment of choice for those looking for a natural all-around cure for various skin and hair disorders. Read on below for seven of the most popular tea tree oil skincare and hair care tips.

1. Acne and Acne Scars Treatment

By far the most popular benefit of tea tree oil is its capacity to alleviate acne. With powerful antibacterial properties that destroy acne-causing bacteria, tea tree oil is a great natural alternative to harsher medications like benzoyl peroxide. Unlike over-the-counter acne scars treatment made from potent chemicals, tea tree oil does not dry the skin or cause redness and peeling. Just apply a drop of the oil to affected areas before going to bed and watch your acne and acne scars disappear over time.

2. Encourages Hair Growth

Add a couple of drops of tea tree oil with coconut, sweet almond oil, or olive oil and massage the mixture into your scalp to nourish roots and unclog hair follicles, thereby promoting hair growth. Avoid applying tea tree oil straight to your scalp as the substance can be too potent – instead, always mix with a type of carrier oil.

3. Relieve Razor Burns

Here’s smart tea tree oil skincare tip you probably don’t know about – use a couple of drops to relieve and cure painful razor burns. Just add a few drops of tea tree oil with a spoonful of coconut oil and gently rub the mixture on affected areas to alleviate and soothe the pain. The mixture functions like a healing balm, protecting the skin from infection while also numbing the pain.

4. Destroy Dandruff

Had enough of your flaky scalp? Put an end to your dandruff with tea tree oil, which has been used for hundreds of years to cure flaky follicles. To use, just add a couple of drops of tea tree oil with your usual shampoo and then rub and rinse as you would.

5. Moisturize Dry Skin

Tea Tree oil is greatly popular for its moisturizing properties, which is why it does wonders for dry skin. To use as a moisturizer, mix one to two drops of tea tree oil with around one tablespoon of sweet almond oil, then rub gently into dry areas of the skin such as your scalp, elbows, knees, and heels for long-lasting relief to the dry and cracked skin.

6. Say Bye-Bye to Hair Fall

Yes, even tea tree oil can help stop hair fall! Tea tree oil strengthens the hair and prevents it from splitting, thereby prevent hair fall due to damage. To use, add a couple of drops of tea tree oil with a few tablespoons of argan or castor oil, rub the mixture into your scalp, leave it on for an hour, and then rinse off as usual. You will notice that this mixture thickens and revitalizes your hair, leaving you with luxurious locks.

7. Use as Lip Balm

Suffering from dry and cracked lips? Fight chapped lips with tea tree oil by mixing a very small amount of tea tree oil with coconut oil, and then rubbing a thin amount on your lips. Although this mixture is very effective for relieving dry lips, it must not be ingested.
