Known mostly for its efficacy in fighting breakouts, Tea Tree is actually a very versatile oil that is great for a cleansing diffuser aroma or mixed into your self-care products.
What is Tea Tree Oil?
Fresh, antibacterial, earthy, and astringent, Tea Tree is an herbal oil steam-distilled from tea tree plants. With a grassy, almost medicinal scent, it helps make things smell clean and fresh.
How to use Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tree is great for skincare (it combats acne) and for your home cleaning products, too. It can also be used in a diffuser either by itself or mixed with other oils.
