Since I was a young girl, I’ve been surrounded by all things natural health. There were always fruits, vegetables, vitamins and essential oils in our home which I absolutely loved even as a child. I believe we are all aware of the benefits our skin gains from having vegetables, fruits and water. But, that is not where it ends!
The sensitivity of our skin ranges from person to person however the number one thing all of our skin has in common is the need to be properly cleansed and moisturized. I have tried a million different natural soaps and moisturizers to help maintain my overall clear skin but there always felt like something was missing. That missing factor was tea tree oil!
Tea tree oil is a perfect way to rid of acne scars with the help of its anti-inflammatory properties. Not only can you use it for acne bit it can help calm itchy as well as dry and oily skin. I have recently begun using tea tree oil during my facial wash routine and my skin has been glowing ever since.
Here’s how I use it:
I created a scrub with this castile soap with natural Lavender oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, hemp oil, coconut oil and mixing it with two tablespoons of sugar. After washing my face with this scrub I take a cotton pad and a few drops of tea tree oil and wipe all around my face. I then proceed to moisturize with an all natural shea butter.
While I don’t recommend applying tea tree oil directly to your skin, I know I’m not allergic so this is how I apply it. I do recommend not only doing a patch test but to always use a carrier oil of your choosing.
This new skin routine provides me with healthy glowing skin and a perfectly cleansed face.
Just a warning tea tree oil has a very strong scent and can burn so be careful when using around the eyes.
You can also use tea tree oil for your hair as it promotes hair growth, helps to calm dry or itchy scalp and moisturizing. I add a few drops to my shampoo and it helps soothe my scalp in an instant.
