20 Great Ways to Use Tea Tree Oil

There are a lot people who swear by the use of natural ,homeopathic remedies and they turn to many types of oils ,called essential oils , to help . I’m not super homeopathic ,but I use more than a handful of oils. One in particular, is Tea Tree Oil.

Tea tree oil, in essence, is a concentrated plant oil from the leaves of a tree native to Australian coastal areas. The tree is known as Melaleuca alternifolia (or tea tree) and is a member of the myrtle family. The oil is distilled into the air through a steam process and used on the skin as an herbal remedy. I actually use the Apothecary Extracts oil on my scalp to help with my dry scalp and the itchiness that results from the condition. There are more than a few uses for tea tree oil,too . Check out a complied list below (list credit to Care2.com) –
