Who knew?

Even since I’ve started TSConf, I’ve become obsessed with aromatherapy ( more on that later ), oils ( another post on oil can be found here ), & liquid herbs ( << cannot.wait.to.share.this.post ).

And today I’m sharing one of my favorites: tea tree oil.

The other day I burned myself with a curling iron…ya.

I don’t do well with heated surfaces.

Of any kind ( I’m talking to you, stove ).

Anyway I used tea tree oil to help the burn heal & lemme tell ya, it was a real game changer. Buh-bye burns!

And for anyone who’s struggling with acne, ditch the Proactive & give tea tree oil a chance.

Tea Tree Oil Benefits:

1. } Heals cuts and burns: it’s a natural antiseptic, meaning it can be used to help treat wounds & burns. Tea tree oil has also been known to treat bacterial infections— love it! Use a dime size amount of tea tree oil to heal razor burns, small cuts, & even sunburns ( although, I’m hoping everyone avoids the sun like the plague ). If you want you can add some water to the oil too : ).

2.} Blemish-be-gone!: this oil’s known for getting rid of pimples. Recently a study found that the oil offers similar results to a 5 percent benzoyl peroxide. Next time you’re on Aunt Flow & have a zitty, throw some tea tree oil on it!

3.} Gets rid of nasty athlete’s foot:all-natural tea tree oil is also known to help cure athlete’s food which is an anti-fungal. It relieves symptoms of athlete’s foot, including scaling, inflammation, itching, & burning. To completely get rid of it though, you’ll need a stronger tea tree oil solution ( 25 percent or 50 percent ) will work best.

4.} Nail infections: You can also use it to fight nail infections. It will take time, but just keep applying the oil twice a day for about a month. You’ll be mani/pedi ready in no time!

5.} Yoga mat cleaner: YESSSS. It’s a natural cleaner that is perfect for yogi’s everywhere. Cha-ching!

See? It’s a definite meddie cabinet must-have.

Question: what’s your favorite oil & why?

Happy hump day! xxo.L

    I’m obsessed with multipurpose oils, I can’t possibly live without them.

    I use:
    Tea Tree oil for all blemishes, cuts, wounds and insect bites

    Eucalyptus oil as a disinfectant in my mop bucket, I pop a capful into my washing machine when washing sheets, towels or wool based items, and when I have a cold or flu its great sprinkled onto pillowcases, rubbed on your chest and in my vapouriser.

    Lavender oil to wipe down counter tops, window sills and skirting boards to keep my house smelling fresh

    I love tea tree oil…you just reminded me to go buy some more. I didn’t know you could use it on burns and cuts though, awesome! I love coconut oil for hair, skin, makeup remover, lip balm, etc…and I love lavender oil…i put it on my pillow at night to help me relax and sleep and its also really healing to sunburns. You can apply it directly to burns and it really soothes. XO Arantha

    I’ve used tea tree oil to heal MRSA without any nasty antibiotics. I use Doterra oils for EVERYTHING…lavender at night on my pillow, temples and wrists; peppermint for nausea and sweet-tooth suppression; eucalyptus for colds and allergies.

    I just started using a Tea Tree Oil Facewash and love it! Be careful though – it is potent stuff. I recently saw a poor girl who was BURNED all over her face from applying the oil without diluting it first to her face, 2nd degree burns. She didn’t even realize it until a day later because it hadn’t fully seeped in yet.

    I’ve been using tea tree oil for blemishes for years. Works way faster than anything I’ve every tried (and trust me, I’ve tried everything, including those expensive “Hollywood stars use it too!” overnight miracle blemish removers). And no way I’ll ever use Proactiv again.

    Coconut oil has also been my kitchen and bathroom staple for a while now. In the bathroom I use it right after shower when my skin is still damp to rub it all over my body, especially elbows, knees, armpits and my feet.

    Love these two! Have a great weekend sexy! X

    Lauryn-

    Do you need to dilute it, or apply directly to blemish with a q-tip? The post about burned skin above scares me!

    What a great post… and a beautiful blog. My company’s blog just took an in-depth look at tea tree oil and its benefits for acne. The Australian study that found tea tree oil to be just as effective as benzoyl peroxide can be found .

    I’ve gotten a nasty chemical burn from tea tree oil before if you don’t dilute it it can cause issues, just be careful and don’t leave it on too long like I did

    Super informative post! Actually just started to get into tea tree oil and I noticed the mention of coconut oil in the comments which is also really helpful for dry skin, especially with winter is coming and the dreaded dry heat (which has been the bane of my existence). Great blog 🙂
