If this page looks funky, I apologize. I need someone with HTML experience to tell me WHY THIS STUPID CODE KEEPS GETTING SCREWED UP.

Recently, thanks to Tomoson, I had the opportunity to try Apothecary Extracts’ Australian Tee Tree Oil. I’ve been thinking about buying tea tree oil for a while, so this was timely!

Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree OilTea Tree Oil is touted as an antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic, and so much more. It’s commonly found in skin care products, cleaning products, and hair care products, among other things.  Apothecary Extracts even has this handy-dandy little graphic.

Tea Tree Oil PropertiesAlong with the enormous bottle of tea tree oil, I got a downloadable guide to using tea tree oil. It’s got lots of great information about tea tree oil’s properties, and 53 ways to use it.

53 Uses for Tea Tree OilI read through the ebook, and honestly, I was a little surprised by all the options. I haven’t made any of the skin care recipes, because…I’m lazy. And most of them require ingredients I don’t have. However, I have been using the oil as an acne spot treatment. This isn’t exactly recommended, because a lot of people are sensitive to tea tree oil. Thankfully, even though my skin is crazy sensitive, tea tree oil doesn’t bother me. So, I dab a little on a cotton ball and pat it on the pimple, and the next morning the inflammation and redness are pretty reduced. I’ll take it.

I have, however, added the oil in my yoga mat cleaner. I LOVE the way it smells, and it lingers a little bit so my mat smells soothing and relaxing.  I’ve also tried it as a steam inhalant. The smell is pretty strong (I like it, Jimmie doesn’t), but it definitely clears your sinuses. And it’s kind of calming. It’ll probably feel really great in the fall when allergy season kicks in (ugh).

I want to try the body scrub, which calls for tea tree oil, brown sugar, honey, and sesame oil. Sounds like a great Christmas gift, actually, now that I think about

The bottle is huge, and Apothecary Extracts says it’ll last me up to a year. Not bad!

Do you use tea tree oil? What should I try it in next?

I received the products mentioned above for free using a href=”″ rel=”nofollow” Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
