Tea Tree, Do You Love Me?

Did we really just use a Drake reference as our title? Pfft, no.. of course we didn't. Although, what better way to talk about the benefits of Tea Tree oil, whilst bringing Drake into the equation. Tea Tree oil, also known as Melaleuca Oil comes from the leaves of the Tea Tree plant, Melaleuca Alternifolia, which is native to south east Queensland, and the north east coast of New South Wales, Australia. Tea Tree oil can be found in many skincare and haircare products, and has been believed to have many healing benefits, medically. Uncover some of the amazing uses that Tea Tree oil has, below.

Anti-Inflammatory + Anti-Bacterial
Due to the oil's well-known property of being an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial saviour, Tea Tree oil can be used on a variety of infections, as well as being found in hand sanitizers and natural deodorants. It's an excellent addition to incorporate into your daily skincare routine to combat acne and blackheads. It's always better to consult a Doctor before using natural alternatives, especially on wounds and cuts. If you're using Tea Tree oil on the skin, its always advised to dilute the oil, with a carrier oil such as almond or coconut.

Known to reduce anxiety and improve sleep, fill the air with the refreshing scent of Tea Tree using a diffuser. Aromatherapy as a whole, is a wonderful way to boost or relax the mood of a room. Diffusing Tea Tree oil can also help cleanse and clarify the air, as well as helping with your sinuses, and awakening your senses. If you don't like the smell of Tea Tree on it's own, you can use a blend of Eucalyptus and Lemon.

Cleaning Product
Going back to the anti-bacterial properties, Tea Tree oil can work wonders as a natural cleaning product. If you're not fond of using the traditional, chemically filled cleaning products that you find in your local supermarkets, using Tea Tree oil to create your own multi-purpose cleaner at home, might just be the best natural alternative for you. Add 10 drops of Tea Tree oil, to 2 cups of hot water, and half a cup of vinegar to create a general disinfectant.

Hair Growth
By unclogging hair follicles and nourishing your roots, Tea Tree oil is a wonderful treatment to use on your scalp and in your hair. When diluted, Tea Tree oil is an excellent natural alternative to common haircare options. Using Tea Tree alongside Coconut oil, can help reduce dandruff, and stimulate hair growth. Mix a tablespoon of coconut oil, and a couple of drops of tea tree oil, massage onto the scalp, and leave for 10 mins, before thoroughly washing away with normal shampoo and conditioner.

Coconut Oil
The multi-purpose favourite in the beauty industry – Why? Because coconut oil has so many amazing benefits and so many uses, from improving dental health to moisturising your skin. Best used as a night time hair mask, melt the coconut oil and begin to gently work it through the hair, focusing on the ends. Wrap in a towel and leave on until morning, making sure to wash it out thoroughly with your usual shampoo and conditioner. Not only does coconut oil add hydration to the hair, it stimulates hair growth, prevents breakage and split ends, and adds softness and shine.
