Organic Tea Tree is one of the world’s best known and beloved essential oils. Native to Australia, it is commonly applied around the world for a multitude of uses. It is known to have remarkable effects on irritated skin by helping to ease redness and restore smoothness.
Other popular uses include helping to combat skin blemishes and soothing skin that has been overexposed in the sun. Its refreshing green, medicinal, woody aroma makes it a wonderful addition to natural home-cleaning sprays, especially in steamy, musty areas like the bathroom. When diffused, it helps support a healthy immune system and can eliminate unpleasant odors.
