Have you guys ever used tea tree oil before? You should definitely try it! Tea Tree oil can be used in everything from skin care, household cleaners, hair care, hygiene products and first aid remedies. It really is a miracle worker, so when the folks at Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil contacted me about trying their product, I was immediately excited.
I’ve used tea tree oil in the past in my skin care regimen, and I can really see a difference in my breakouts when I’m using it on a consistent basis. One thing I didn’t know was that not all essential oils are created equal. Some suppliers dilute their oils to save money, but this results in an inferior product and come cause unwanted side effects. 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil is the only brand of tea tree oil that openly shares its test results with the public, and that definitely makes me feel good about the quality.
They are only sold on Amazon, and are very reasonable priced. A little bit of tea tree oil goes a long way, so this bottle will definitely last me a long time. I wanted to try it in several ways to really be able to tell you guys about the benefits of this oil. I had never used it as a household cleaner before, so I was excited to start cleaning with it.
When you order, they send you a recipe guide with 53 recipes(!!!) for using the oil. Seriously, there are SO many things that I never knew you could use this for! I made the simple household cleaner, and absolutely loved it. I used lemon essential oil to give a nice smell, but you could use whatever you want.
All-Purpose Household Cleaner
2 tsp Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil
2 cups distilled water
6 oz white vinegar
20 drops lemon essential oil
1 spray bottle
Mix everything in the spray bottle and give it a gentle shake.
I also used it for skin care, which is definitely my favorite way to use it. I made a green clay mask and mixed it with the oil, and I couldn’t even believe how much better my skin looked after just one use. I have done this mask once/week for the last three weeks, and I can absolutely tell a difference in my skin. My breakouts are much better, and my pores are smaller and less clogged with dirt and oil. Tea tree oil works to kill bacteria, so it is perfect for acne prone skin.
Green Clay Mask with Tea Tree Oil
1 tbsp green clay powder
1-2 tbsp water
3-4 drops Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil
In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients with a spoon until it becomes a paste. Using your fingers, rub the mask all over your face, and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
I love the fact that this brand is very pure and they do not dilute their product, which makes me feel like I’m not wasting my time by using it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
