An immensely popular and infinitely-useful extract, tea tree oil contains powerful antimicrobial agents that even science admits are highly effective at warding off disease. In fact, tea tree oil has proved to be as strong as salicylic acid when it comes to eliminating the bacteria that causes acne, and can actually help control issues related to sebum secretion and pore dilation.
When not killing germs on the skin, tea tree oil is also highly effective at handling the inflammation those germs cause. Moreover, the oil has proved to be helpful in staving off damage from free radicals, which are known to cause damage to your body's cells.
Tea tree has a powerful aroma, which makes it quite an efficient mucus eliminator. However, not only does it eliminate the mucus itself, but it also controls coughing and reduces spasming in the lungs themselves. Curiously, when used topically, tea tree oil is equally effective at preventing muscle contractions.
History/Fun Fact:Tea tree oil is native to Australia and at one time was used as a cure-all medicine. The plant's medicinal properties remained a secret to the world until the 1920’s when Australia chemist, Dr. Arthur Penfold, began investigating its antiseptic properties. During World War II the Australian government made tea tree oil part of its first aid kits. Tea Tree essential oil has also been used in perfumes, cosmetics, soaps, incense, and candles. It has a strong, distinct, scent and can be overpowering to some people.
Suggested Uses / Recipes: Blend 2 drops tea tree oil, 1 drop eucalyptus oil, 3 drops grapefruit oil and 4 drops lavender oil in a roller bottle with a carrier oil to combat skin challenges.

I am new to oils what do you recommend?

We will work with you to find the right oils and the best uses.
How do I use the Essential Oils?
Essential oils can be used in so many different ways such as for mood lifting, allergies, cold/flu symptoms, and sleeping by diffusing the oils in an oil diffuser. They can be used topically for things such as muscle pain relief, skin toning, hair strengthening, and cleaning just to name a few. If you want to use the oils for any medical purposes we recommend you always consult a physician or licensed aroma therapist before use. You can contact our Customer Support Team to help you find the best uses to suit your needs.
How do you extract the Essential Oils?
The majority of our oils are extracted by Steam Distillation.
Can I use the oil directly on my skin?
Yes, however we always recommend you do a patch test before using any undiluted Essential Oil on your skin. To do a patch test you will want to place a small amount of the undiluted oil on the inside of your wrist or behind your ear, because the skin is thinner than the rest of the body and more sensitive. If there is no reaction within 15 minutes you should be able to use the oil topically without a carrier oil or lotion. If you have a reaction try diluting the oil with a carrier oil or lotion then do the patch test again. This will cut down the strength of the oil so it may be less irritating.
What type of carrier oil can I use? Is there anything else I can use besides carrier oil?
You can use JoJoba oil, Fractionated Coconut oil, and plain unscented lotion. If you are using the Essential Oil in a massage the JoJoba oil works best. If you are looking for a moisturizer the Coconut oil or lotion works best.
