Tea Tree Oil is a favorite in my home & if you have been reading my blog you know we use it in many DIY recipes & ideas.
One of the most versatile essential oils. Naturally fight Acne, Toenail Fungus, Lice, Yeast Infections, Skin Tags, Cold Sores, Dandruff, Ringworm, Fleas, Warts, Psoriasis, and More.
In my house Tea Tree oil is one of those products that gets used daily for something or another. Not only is Tea Tree oil on my list of the top 6 essential oils I recommend when getting started, It is #1 on that list & is a great place for those just starting out using essential oils or just getting into DIY to get started.
The Many uses of Tea Tree Oil.
In another blog post I shared recipes using tea tree oil for everything from cleaning to skin care & in between, & if you cruise around my blog any length of time you will find many other uses & recipes for tea tree oil. But so many of you asked for more. The brand of Tea Tree oil I will be using & reviewing today is Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil.
Let me tell you right now one of my absolute favorite uses for tea tree oil is to put about 10 drops or so of Argan oil (or Jojoba oil) in the palm of my hand, add 2 to 3 drops of tea tree oil & rub into my hands, finger nails, feet, face or wherever & massage in, sometimes I also add a drop or 2 of eucalyptus essential oil as the 2 together are an amazing combo. This mixture can be used for rubbing on forehead & temples for headaches & migraines, on dry skin, rashes, skin issues, pimples, blackheads, acne, boils, burns, sinus issues, colds (rubbed on chest), sore throat (rubbed on throat), sore feet, sore muscles, on & on.
Many do use tea tree oil straight, it is a bit of a dryer oil so adding it to a carrier oil works best for most & some can not tolerate it straight so again a carrier oil such as argan, jojoba, coconut, emu, rosehip, sweet almond, wheat germ etc would work great for mixing with tea tree oil. Tea Tree oil is best used on skin, massaged in etc, but can also be used in oral care & really is amazing for the health of gums & for oral issues.
Contemporary Uses: Tea Tree Essential Oil is best known as a very powerful immune stimulant. It can help to fight all three categories of infectious organisms (bacteria, fungi, and viruses), and there is evidence that Tea Tree Oil massages prior to an operation may help to fortify the body and reduce post-operative shock. Used in vapor therapy, Tea Tree Oil can help with colds, measles, sinusitis and viral infections. For skin and hair, Tea Tree has been used to combat acne, oily skin, head lice, dandruff, toenail fungus, yeast infections, skin tags, cold sores, dandruff, and ringworm.
Here are a list of just a few more of the ways we use tea tree oil:

Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil:
I really like the purity & quality of the Apothecary Extracts tea tree oil, it has endless uses as you have seen. Many do not like the scent of tea tree oil & prefer to combine it with other essential oils like eucalyptus, lemon or lavender, me personally I love the scent & the coolness of tea tree oil & this Apothecary Extracts brand has that very natural scent of tea tree oil I have come to expect from quality brands. Some brands kinda smell rancid & off & so to me the smell is important. This brand also feels like a quality brand should, when you rub it between your fingers it does not feel thick or gooey, rather it feels like the dry oil it should be & absorbs in fast.
I am loving the large size of the bottle as well, we use a lot of tea tree oil & I really do hate to run out so a larger bottle is a must but it is harder to find quality brands that are affordable in larger bottles. So I am happy to have been sent the Apothecary Extracts tea tree oil for my honest review & to say yes I love it. And you will love it to.
The Australian standards require that the oil of Melaleuca alternifolia must be composed of less than 15 cineole and over 30 terpinen-4-ol. You can request copies of our Gas Chromatography reports which show that Apothecary Extracts’ Tea Tree Oil is not only compliant with these regulations but surpasses them. Apothecary Extracts is composed of less than 5 cineole and over 35 terpinen-4-ol which qualifies for Pharmaceutical Grade as established by the Australian Tea Tree Oil Industry Association. It is 100% pure and unadulterated. No fillers, additives, bases or carriers added.
