Tea tree oil is derived from the leaves of the tea tree .It has antibacterial and anti fungal properties .Tea tree oil has a very important role in my daily regimen.I use it in multiple ways .I add two drops of it in everywhere imaginable. It is like my ”do boondh zindagi ke”.
I do not have any specific ways to use , as i do not have any allergic reactions to tea tree oil . I add 2 drops of tea tree oil to every pack i make. Both d.i.y and commercial ones .It just adds a dose of acne coverage for me.
I have an extremely oily acne prone skin that tea tree oil found a place in almost everything i use on my skin.Like the one before i have added few drops of tea tree oil to the night cream i daily use.
On red and inflamed ones i use a drop directly , i use a cotton bud to apply it on spot. The action of tea tree oil for acne is comparable to Benzyl Peroxide . But tea tree oil is less irritating and more time taking compared to the later.
If you have intolerance to the strong tea tree oil , you can consider adding it to Aloevera gel
4.post -pop up
I usually do not pick or pop my pimples as it can need to nasty scarring and spread. But there are times where it becomes an emergency . If i have to pop a pimple , i will do in a very sterile way . After popping up ,i apply tea tree oil topically on the raw spot . It burns a bit but it can reduce the inflammation and it can reduce the infectivity (chances of infecting other areas)
I take 10 mins of steam twice a week for both beauty and medical benefits . I add two drops of tea tree oil to the steam . Being an antibacterial it helps with bronchitis and sinusitis as well.
I add two drops of tea tree oil to the oil before oiling my hair. It helps with itchiness and minor scalp infections ( Read other tips 4 Home remedies for Itchy scalp ). It is extremely useful in rainy season. (Related …10 MONSOON HAIR CARE tips )
7.for bathing water
I have a habit of adding essential oils to my bathing water . The aroma gives a nice feeling , plus tea tree oil helps with body odor and itchiness .
8.FOR MINOR CUTS
I am extremely prone to cuts and other minor injuries . If i can not get my hands on any antiseptic ,i will happily use tea tree oil ( i keep a bottle of it everywhere i go ). I also use this after threading my eyebrows .
Do not use tea tree oil , if you have extremely sensitive skin unless tested. Pubertal and prepubertal boys may experience some problems with it , as tea tree oil might have some harmonal effects .
