From preventing dandruff to cleaning your home, tea tree oil has a variety of uses.
This strong-scented oil comes from the evergreen leaves of the Australian tea tree and can kill bacteria and fungi.
Not only does research suggest that tea tree oil can help treat acne, but the product is beneficial to both oily and dry skin types!
Tea tree oil’s anti-inflammatory properties make it a great option for soothing and eliminating redness, unclogging pores, and healing existing breakouts.
Before you go buy a bottle and slather it on your face, remember that tea tree oil is very potent and should be diluted in a carrier oil at a 1:12 ratio. And as always, be sure to do a patch test before applying – everyone’s skin reacts differently!
