Product Description

One of my personal favourites - I am a real Tea Tree lover! 

Tea tree essential oil, derived from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia plant, offers a variety of benefits and can be a versatile and natural alternative for cleaning purposes as well as for use in skincare and hair care. It is well known for it anti bacterial and anti microbial properties, which makes it one of the most popular essential oils to have in your sustainability toolkit. Here are ten of our favourite uses for this natural powerhouse. 

  1. Antimicrobial Properties - Tea tree oil possesses strong antimicrobial properties, making it effective against bacteria, viruses, and fungi. It can be used to disinfect surfaces and prevent the growth of harmful microorganisms.

  2. Deodorizing: The oil has a fresh and clean scent that can help eliminate unpleasant odors. Use it to deodorize spaces like bathrooms, kitchens, and bins.

  3. Mold and Mildew Control: Tea tree oil is effective in inhibiting the growth of mold and mildew. Mix it with water and spray it in areas prone to moisture, such as bathrooms, to prevent mold development.

  4. Air Purification: Diffusing tea tree oil can help purify the air by killing airborne bacteria and viruses. This is particularly useful during cold and flu seasons.

  5. Laundry Freshener: Add a few drops of tea tree oil to your laundry to give your clothes a fresh scent while also benefiting from its antibacterial properties. A great choice for those making their own laundry detergent or using soap nuts. 

  6. Pest Repellent: Tea tree oil can act as a natural insect repellent. Add a few drops to a spray bottle with water and use it to repel pests in the home.

  7. Insect Bites and Stings: The anti-inflammatory and soothing properties of tea tree oil make it useful for relieving itching and discomfort caused by insect bites and stings. Apply a diluted solution to the affected area

  8. Foot Odor and Fungus: Tea tree oil can be used to combat foot odor and fungal infections. Add a few drops to a foot soak or mix with a carrier oil for a refreshing foot massage.

  9. Lice Prevention: Tea tree oil can be added to shampoos or diluted with a carrier oil and applied to the hair to help prevent and repel lice.

  10. Hair Care: Adding tea tree oil to your shampoo or conditioner may help alleviate dandruff and promote a healthy scalp. Its antifungal properties can also assist in preventing scalp infections.

It's important to note that while tea tree oil is a natural alternative, it should be used with caution and in moderation. Always be sure to dilute tea tree oil with a carrier oil (such as coconut oil or jojoba oil) before applying it to the skin, and perform a patch test to check for any adverse reactions. It's also essential to use tea tree oil with caution around pets and small children.  Additionally, pregnant individuals and those with certain medical conditions should consult with a healthcare professional before using essential oils.
