In our journey to self-discovery and safe ways for longer healthier life, we’ve come across a number of natural ingredients used in most of these expensive products we see in the market. One of these is the tea tree oil.

Tea tree oil is an essential oil extracted from a plant native to Australia. It has antiseptic properties good for treating acne. However, there are other benefits of tea tree oil.

1. Acne

Tea tree oil can be used to cure acne. You can add it to the affected place with a cotton bud. You can mix it with rose water if you have a sensitive skin. When using tea tree oil, stay away from the sun, as it can increase your sensitivity to UV rays.

2. Dandruff

Tea tree oil can also be used to cure dandruff and itchy scalp. Just add a little to your shampoo and conditioner and use on your hair.

3. Sunburn and Eczema

Tea tree oil can be used to manage eczema and take care of sunburns and to relieve the pain caused by sunburns.
