AWO’s pure, quintessentially Australian-smelling Tea Tree Essential Oil has a fresh, earthy, and herbaceous aroma, traditionally associated with medicinal use. You won’t be surprised to learn that Aboriginal Australians have used tea trees for millennia, prizing its analgesic,antifungal, antibacterial, decongestant, healing, diaphoretic, stimulant, and deodorant properties. The leaves were historically used as a substitute for tea, which is how it got its name.
Tea Tree Essential Oil is commonly used in personal care products such as lotions, creams, gels, washes, shampoos, and various cosmetic products to help heal wounds and ease inflammation. It can also help to reduce symptoms of acne, burns, sunburn, insect bites, blisters, eczema, chickenpox, cold sores and athlete’s foot, just for starters, and is also great for dandruff, head lice, foot odour and oily skin.
As if all this wasn’t enough, Tea Tree Essential Oil is also known to boost respiratory function – helpful if you have sinusitis, asthma, bronchitis, or whooping cough.
Try adding 15–20 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil to a full spray bottle of water to create an all-purpose, naturally disinfecting cleaner, mold killer, laundry freshener and insect repellent. A must for your home!
