Following my blog on Diffusers I referred to how amazing and versatile certified organic essential oils are. So here we go starting with Tea Tree Oil and all its incredible uses. Our Choose Organic certified organic Tea Tree Oil is loving grown and produced in the beautiful South Island of New Zealand. One of the first things I noticed about this particular Tea Tree Oil is its pure high quality fragrance which was appealing, pleasant and full of life. Other Tea Tree oils I have used or smelt over the years have had had a ‘pong’ and flat not entirely appealing fragrance!! Even though they claim to be 100% pure or natural etc??
Quality does count with essential oils!
What is Tea Tree Oil?
Its Botanical name is Melaleuca Alternifolia, the method of extraction is steam distillation, parts used are the leaves and our Choose Organic Tea Tree Oil from True Blue Organics is grown in New Zealand. It is BioGro certified organic with a scent that is a warm, fresh, spicy – camphoraceous
The importance of Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tree oil (TTO) is one of those important essential oils to have in the home. It is effective in the prevention and treatment of many common conditions and is mild when used on your skin. Tea Tree oil is amazingly versatile with its antiseptic properties and if used properly, Tea Tree Oil can be a great solution for minor cuts, abrasions, insect bites, scratches, cleaning a wound or disinfecting minor wounds. In its pure form like this, it can be used for treating conditions like ringworm, toenail fungus, cold sores, dandruff and even athletes foot. Mixed with our lovely golden Choose Organic certified organic Jojoba carrier oil it can help to relieve swelling from Arthritis.
NB: like all quality certified organic essential oils our Choose Organic Tea Tree oil is very potent and powerful so please use sparingly and with caution, keeping away from children and pets.
