Tea Tree: Historically known as the Miracle Antiseptic
We are very excited to announce that we now have a new source of wildcrafted tea tree oil. After researching for over a year, we have aligned with several farmers and distillers in Australia who are committed to protecting and responsibly sourcing from the native tea tree forests in their original ecosystem, which have been around for thousands of years. Furthermore, these farmers give back to help at-risk native wildlife in Australia.
The Tea Tree Oil we are proud to offer is 100% pure unadulterated Australian essential oil,
wildcrafted from trees in their original ecosystem and is certified organic.
There are many great reasons to use this medicinally superior tea tree oil. It can be used to address many issues including cough, colds, flu, cuts and scrapes, earaches and ear infections, lice, and staph.
Skin Issues? Try Tea Tree
Tea tree is a great remedy for many skin issues, in particular. Apply directly or diluted in a carrier oil for acne, plantar warts, or fungal infections such as athlete's foot, candida, and thrush.
Step 1: Select a carrier oil. Almond oil, jojoba oil, or coconut oil are readily available at your local health food store.
Step 2: Dilute according to age and intended use. Mix 10-20 drops in 1/4 tsp of your carrier oil. (For the very young, elderly, and those with sensitive skin, additional dilution my be required. For example, 4-5 drops per tablespoon.)
Step 3: Apply directly to the affected area.
If you have any mixture leftover, store in a glass container.
