It’s no secret that essential oils have magical powers. Well maybe not magical, but they sure can work wonders! I love using natural products as much as I can (although I still have a long way to go) and I wanted to share with you about the two essential oils that have helped me with two major problems in my skin care routine. Thankfully, a little bit goes a long way.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is extracted from the leaves of the tea tree Melaleuca Alternifolia which is native to Southeast Queensland and the Northeast coast of New South Wales, Australia. It’s taxi when taken orally, but is wild used in cosmetics and skin care treatment at low concentrations. I’ve found tea tree oil to be helpful with eliminating zits, conditioning a dry scalp (thanks, winter) and diminishing moles. I’ve added just a dab to small moles that are starting to form on my face and they disappear in about a week or two! This hasn’t worked with moles I’ve had for years and years, but only ones that are just starting to form.
I struggle with dry skin but especially during winter. I’ve found that apply Lavender essential oil and using lavender infused products like this Lavender Vanilla body sugar scrub drastically improves the itch and bumps from dry skin. Lavender is also good for use in aromatherapy and I’ve made Lavender infused soy candles for at-home use.
