Tea tree essential oil has a rather medicinal scent but has some very impressive characteristics including being an anti-fungal, antiviral, and antibacterial. The oil is used for the treatment of acne, burns, blisters, cold sores, warts, athlete's foot, sunburn, herpes, and insect bites.
Today you can find tea tree oil in many popular products in your health food store from shampoos and soaps to salves and shower cleaners. I use tea tree oil in two of my soaps, the first being one of my soaps of the month, Tea Tree & Eucalyptus. Eucalyptus, also from Australia has it's own powerful characteristic including being an antiseptic and antiviral. The two essential oils teamed together not only make a wonderful scent combination but also make for a powerhouse of healing properties.
My other soap with tea tree essential oil is my newest soap Charcoal &Tea Tree. Here the powerful characteristic of tea tree are matched with activated charcoal which clarifies and detoxes your skin of impurities. This is a great soap for acne prone skin.
These two soaps will be 15% OFF in both my Etsy and Artfire Shops.http://www.artfire.com/users/SweetSallysSoaps
