The Benefits of Tea Tree Oil – Why you should have it at home

Tea Tree essential oil is something you shouldn’t miss out on. It is one of nature’s most important antiseptics. It is also antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal. It is used by the Aborigines for centuries.

It can be used for example on:

  • Burns
  • Insect Bites
  • Stings
  • Wounds
  • Skin infections
  • Athletes Foot
  • Cold Sores
  • Vaginal Yeast Infections
  • Acne
  • Warts

If you haven’t used tea tree essential oil before, make sure to dilute it first with water or a carrier oil. Test it on a small area on your body. Usually it is very skin friendly however we are all different and allergic reactions can occur. But one thing is for sure, it is much safer than any chemical treatments or drugs you can buy at the pharmacy.

One ingredient natural Shampoo DIY

 

Ingredients: 1-2 lemons ( yes, that’s all)

In case you are suffering from bad, oily or frizzy hair. Lemon juice can be your savior. I tend to rinse my hair once a week with lemon juice. I simply squeeze out the juice from two lemons (I have long hair), massage it into my hair and scalp and let it sit for 2-3 minutes. Afterwards,  I wash it out with water and my hair is shiny and smooth.

I wash my hair ca. twice a week. Once with only lemon juice and the second time I use organic, natural and vegan shampoo ( for example 100% Pure). It is important not to wash your hair too often. If you have been washing your hair daily or almost daily, try to slowly decrease the amount of washes.
